Jennifer Lawrence revealed she has a crush on Timothée Chalamet, gushing over Call Me By Your Name star recently.

“ buttering him up like a pig for slaughter,” the Red Sparrow star, 27, joked to Entertainment Tonight, adding that she’s waiting for the 22-year-old star to “get a little older” before making a move.

“I’m going to swing right in there as soon as he’s, like, 30,” she said, before asking, “He’s old enough to say that, right? He’s over 18?”

She added with a laugh, “What if I was like, ‘He’s hot!’ and he’s 15?”

 

Chalamet earned an Oscar nod for playing a 17-year-old who has an affair with an older man (played by Armie Hammer) in Call Me By Your Name.

“I didn’t realize he was so young,” Lawrence told ET. “Tell him to wait! … so, so talented and hot!”

The actress, who recently split with director Darren Aronofsky, attended the wedding of one of her best friends, Amy Schumer, earlier this week.

“It was beautiful. It was very sudden, but it was, I was sobbing the whole ,” she previously told Entertainment Tonight.

“His vows were stunning,” Lawrence continued. “It’s when two people really love each other and they really mean it, it shows, and it was a beautiful ceremony and an amazing time. I couldn’t be happier for them.”

Teen Mom 2‘s David Eason has been fired from MTV’s hit reality show after he allegedly posted a series of homophobic tweets this week.

“David Eason’s personal comments do not reflect the views of MTV,” the network said in a statement to PEOPLE on Tuesday.

“With six weeks left of production on Teen Mom 2, effective immediately, we are ending our relationship with him.”

A representative for Evans and Eason did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

Teen Mom fans took to social media to protest Eason’s involvement with the show after he allegedly referred to gay and transgender people as “abominations.”

Since the controversy, Eason’s Twitter account has been taken down but screenshots of the alleged tweets have been circulating on social media.

Eason shared a news story about the possibility of allowing people with concealed carry permits to bring guns to school property, allegedly tweeting, “It only makes sense to protect our kids the proper way… the only way we know how.”

When a Twitter user suggested people use “education” and “intentional parenting” as ways to protect children instead of with weapons, Eason allegedly replied, “No, you are wrong. Please tell me sir, how do you propose we make all of America start being better parents? Or are you a monkeys uncle?”

The Twitter user told Eason to stop “glorifying assault rifles” and to teach his children “how to solve problems without calling people names or using force.”

Eason allegedly responded with, “And just what makes you think you have the right to tell me how to be a parent? Because you think you know me? Lmao why don’t you go tell the homo and transgender parents to start teaching their kids better morals? Oh I forgot that’s supposed to be normal.”

A different Twitter user asked Eason if he was going to teach his children “to hate gay and transgender people.”

“No, I’m going to teach them not to associate with them or be that way,” he allegedly responded. “If you lay down with dogs you get up with fleas.”

On Tuesday, his wife Jenelle Evans issued a statement to TMZ defending her husband.

“David didn’t understand how offensive people would get or how Twitter even works. Now that he realizes his voice is very strong within media/tabloids he has deactivated his account. He agrees he will keep his comments to himself from now on,” she said. “David doesn’t hate people from the LGBT community. My old manager was gay and used to be one of me and Davids close friends. We attended Farrah’s birthday in Miami with a lot of LGBT people there and he didn’t act in any type of way. We went had a good time and left. We are sorry for the comments that were made.”

Evans’ relationship with Eason was a point of contention on the most recent season of Teen Mom 2: Evans, 26, threatened to quit the show after an episode exposing the couple’s marital tensions aired. Evans later told PEOPLE that she couldn’t stop crying after watching it and felt as though she is “always portrayed as ‘the bad one’ to them no matter how much I change.”
