The comedian also explains the provocative origins of beloved “Curb Your Enthusiasm” and “Seinfeld” episodes Larry David answered several burning questions during an appearance at the 15th annual New Yorker Festival on Saturday.
In a discussion with New Yorker editor David Remnick, he addressed the inspirations behind his most beloved work on “Seinfeld” and “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” but he also spoke to a matter of the heart.
When asked about “The Hunger Games” actress’ crush on him, David responded, “Smart kid. It’s a shame that I’m about 40 years older than she is.” Remnick then read the rest of Lawrence’s declaration of love: “I worshipWoody Allen, but I don’t feel it below the belt the way I do for Larry David.”
The comedian retorted, “Maybe she’s referring to her knees. I don’t think I could do it. On one hand it’s very flattering and on another hand, it’s kind of a shame — in terms of timing. I’d have fun watching the reality show of it though.”
