Larry David says he’s flattered by Jennifer Lawrence’s crush on him. As Gossip Cop reported, Lawrence revealed her affections for the comedian-actor in a recent interview with Vanity Fair. Talking about what she looks for in a boyfriend, Lawrence confessed that David was her ideal man. “I’m in love with him, and I have been for a really long time,” she told the magazine.

Lawrence added, “I worship Woody Allen, but I don’t feel it below the belt the way I do for Larry David.” David was asked to responded to the comments at the New Yorker Festival on Saturday, during a public talk with editor David Remnick. “Smart kid,” the “Curb Your Enthusiasm” star reportedly replied. “It’s a shame that I’m about 40 years older than she is.”

Joking about Lawrence’s “below the belt” remark, David said, “Maybe she’s referring to her knees.” “I don’t think I could do it,” he then said of a possible romance. Daivd explained, “On one hand it’s very flattering and on another hand, it’s kind of a shame — in terms of timing.” “I’d have fun watching the reality show of it though,” he quipped. For the record, David — who is single — is 67, while Lawrence is 24, making an age difference of 43 years. Sorry, Jen?
