You weren’t the only one watching “Call Me by Your Name” and realizing you were falling deeply in love with 22-year-old actor Timothée Chalamet. Jennifer Lawrence revealed during her “Red Sparrow” press tour that she, too, has caught Chalamet fever. Lawrence is a fan of Chalamet’s acting skills, sure, but more importantly she’s got a serious crush on the Oscar nominee.

“He’s old enough to say that, right? He’s over 18?” Lawrence joked to Entertainment Tonight (via Vulture). “What if I was like, ‘He’s hot!’ and he’s 15?’ I didn’t realize he was so young. Tell him to wait. [He’s] so, so talented and hot!”

Wherever you are, Timmy, Lawrence has this message for you: “Timothée, I’m waiting for him to get a little bit older, you know? [I’m] 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.”

Chalamet has a shot to join Lawrence in the Oscar winner’s circle this year. His role in “Call Me by Your Name” earned him a Best Actor nomination, making him the youngest nominee in the category in nearly eight decades. The Academy Awards take place Sunday, March 4.
