We know Jennifer Lawrence is in a relationship with Coldplay rocker Chris Martin. However, she previously made a public declaration of love for funny man Larry David and it’s got us thinking which older men the actress may like to date (or just crush on).
Lawrence confessed that she has a crush on David during her interview with Vanity Fair magazine, when she told the publication, “I’m in love with [David], and I have been for a really long time. I worship Woody Allen, but I don’t feel it below the belt the way I do for Larry David.”
And that leads us to the beginning of our list.
1. Larry David
The Seinfeld creator enjoyed Lawrence’s comments about him, although he feels he’s a little old for her.
According to Gawker, David revealed at the New Yorker Festival on Saturday, Oct. 11, just how he felt.
“Smart kid. It’s a shame that I’m about 40 years older than she is.” He said. “Maybe she’s referring to her knees. I don’t think I could do it. On one hand it’s very flattering and on the other hand, it’s kind of a shame — in terms of timing. I’d have fun watching the reality show of it, though.”
2. Jerry Seinfeld
If JLaw has a serious crush on David, then Jerry Seinfeld could be another older gentleman that she might be taken with, since he and David are the brilliant minds behind the hit TV series Seinfeld. There’s one problem here, though: Seinfeld himself is a married man, and has been since 1999.
3. Woody Allen
Crushing on Woody Allen would be a no-brainer, especially since she already declared that she worships him. And Lawrence is not the only one to think highly of the Oscar-winning director.
Allen has a string of hit films under his belt, including Blue Jasmine and Midnight in Paris, not to mention he’s got an amazing way with words and he’s a seriously funny guy.
4. Clint Eastwood
At 84 years old, Clint Eastwood still has sex appeal. Yes, we said it. But you can also appreciate his brilliance as seen in Million Dollar Baby and Unforgiven.
5. Christopher Walken
If there’s one actor who’s aged well it’s Christopher Walken, and he’s still provides us with some serious eye candy. We love him for the macho roles that he has played, but he is as versatile as they come. Oh, and he’s got a killer sense of humor, which is why he’s a popular guest-host of Saturday Night Live.
He’s also a very talented dancer. What woman doesn’t love a man who can move?
6. Pierce Brosnan
Irish-American heartthrob Pierce Brosnan can be our James Bond any day. Brosnan is not only gorgeous, he’s also talented, and we have witnessed his versatility in roles ranging from Mamma Mia! to The Ghost Writer.
7. Sean Connery
From Russia with Love actor Sean Connery is quite the catch. He’s not hard on the eyes, he has an amazing Scottish accent and he was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II (so Miss Lawrence could have her very own knight).
We know Larry David said he’s too old to be with Lawrence, but if things don’t end up working out with Chris Martin, maybe she can set her eyes on another one of these hot older gentlemen.
