Watch Jennifer Lawrence Gush Over 'So Hot' Timothee Chalamet! (Exclusive)
Lawrence really did say it exactly like that. While promoting her new movie, Red Sparrow, last month, she also told ET that she's "buttering him up like a pig for slaughter, and then I'm going to swing right in there as soon as he's, like, 30."
"I didn't realize he was so young," she confessed. "Tell him to wait!"
"As I've said before, she's a total legend," Chalamet told ET on Saturday. "She's an icon amongst young people where it's tough to have a career at a young age, and she's done that and then some. So, what an honor."
"I've gotten to meet her a couple times," he added. "She's awesome. She's really... this whole ride has been f**king crazy."
"[I'm] full of gratitude," he told ET. "This has been an incredible time. I'm excited to get to keep going. I guess that's the most thrilling part of this, it's like a co-sign from the community to hopefully keep making work now."
"I guess [I'll celebrate] tomorrow night," he shared. "Tonight's supposed to be a night off, but that's going to be tough."
