Encouraging: In a surprising turn of events, Seth Meyers shared how his wife Alexi Ashe responded upon discovering that Jennifer Lawrence had been secretly crushing on him for years. This incident happened back in 2023.
Smitten: The charming host recently revealed that he was left feeling “very flattered” after the talented Oscar-winning actress confessed to having feelings for him during her appearance on his late-night talk show back in 2016.
On Monday’s episode of The Howard Stern Show, Seth Meyers shared how happy his wife was after Jennifer Lawrence confessed her past crush on him. Despite the actress’s attraction, Meyers claims he was oblivious as he was already engaged to his wife Ashe. During his time on SNL, Meyers never had the chance to flirt due to always feeling overwhelmed and stressed. He even joked that Lawrence’s past crush reflects poorly on her taste in men since she is now married to Cooke Maroney.
Back in 2015, Jennifer Lawrence revealed during her hosting gig on Saturday Night Live that she had a crush on Seth Meyers and was planning to ask him out years ago. The actress admitted that she created a fictional romance with the comedian in her head because of her delusions. Jennifer initially thought Seth would ask her out, but later during a costume fitting, she decided to take matters into her own hands. Fortunately, she talked to the wardrobe lady before making any moves and found out that Seth was already engaged.
Meyers and Ashe, a human rights attorney, are still going strong. Despite meeting initially at a wedding in 2008, it wasn’t until July 2013 that they became engaged. A photo from 2019 captures the happy couple together.
A great match: In the meantime, Maroney and Lawrence tied the knot in October of 2019 after dating for a year. They were spotted together in 2023.
The exchange between the two individuals was a joyous and heartwarming display of the genuine and enjoyable atmosphere of the show. Alexi’s humorous comment and Jennifer’s candid admission brought smiles to the faces of the audience, highlighting the importance of laughter and authenticity in creating connections and bringing joy. This delightful and memorable segment serves as a reminder of the simple yet powerful ways in which we can bring happiness into our lives.
