After Academy Award winner Jennifer Lawrence declared her love for Larry David in a recent Vanity Fair profile, David offered his response over the weekend, The Hufffington Post reports.
Lawrence, 24, said of David, 67, in the Vanity Fair piece: “I’m in love with him, 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.”
Appearing Saturday at the New Yorker Festival, David, the creator and star of HBO’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” addressed the remark, pointing out the age difference.
Said David: “Smart kid. It’s a shame that I’m about 40 years older than she is.”
After someone pointed out the “below the belt” reference, he quipped: “Maybe she’s referring to her knees.”
