Ah, don’t feel so bad, lad! The X Factor’s Olly Murs made an awkward attempt to flirt with Jennifer Lawrence in a recent interview on BBC Radio 1’s The Breakfast Show, but the Hunger Games actress handled the situation like a pro.
One month prior to sitting down with Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, and Liam Hemsworth, 31-year-old Murs told The Breakfast Show host Nick Grimshaw that if there was one celebrity he’d like to kiss, it would be the Silver Linings Playbook actress.
Grimshaw then brought up this fact during the group interview, putting Murs on the spot by bringing up the singer’s crush, calling him “the biggest Jennifer Lawrence fan in the world.”
“You’re hiding it well, sir,” Hutcherson said with a smile.
“Yeah, you’ve virtually ignored me since I’ve come here,” Lawrence joked.
The nervous “Kiss Me” crooner then proceeded to ask Lawrence some pointed questions throughout the interview, including, “Is there any film you couldn’t do? Because you are a superb actress,” and “How good are you at archery now?”
Lawrence, 25, answered graciously, calling Murs “really sweet.”
When the interview was almost over, Murs finally mustered up the courage to ask Lawrence who her “ideal man” was.
“I’m going to start with english,” Lawrence said, stuttering a bit. “Um, you. I was trying to — I don’t have enough information to list out all of your qualities, because we just met, but you seem really wonderful.”
