Jennifer Lawrence may be a Golden Globe winner, but she’s still a giddy 22-year-old when it comes to her childhood crush. During her visit on Conan O’Brien’s show, the ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ actress spoke about her awkward encounter with ‘90s heartthrob John Stamos at a party.
"I was like following him into rooms and staring at his ass."
Like all girls growing up in the ‘90s, Jennifer had a crush on the charming Uncle Jesse from ‘Full House’ – so it was not surprising that seeing John in real life would make her giddy. She added, "I lost my mind. And I got so upset - I didn't want to meet him because when I meet people it's never good, and I was avoiding him.
But then my friends brought him over because my friends are jerks, and I started really freaking out. And he asked me if I was on mushrooms and I said, 'No. I'm dead sober. This is just me.'"
John, 49, was completely unaware of Jennifer’s crush until his pal Nick Jonas pointed it out on Twitter. Nick wrote, “@JohnStamos gets a shout out from Jennifer Lawrence on Conan... I envy you uncle Jesse. (sic)”
John tweeted soon after, “for the first time i was totally oblivious (sic).”
You never know, John, now that Jennifer has split from her boyfriend Nicholas Hoult, it may be time to make a move!
