In an appearance at the New Yorker Festival on Saturday, Larry David responded to Jennifer Lawrence's declarations of love from this month's issue of Vanity Fair.

The Wrap reports Larry David, in a discussion with New Yorker editor David Remnick, spoke about his work on Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm before Remnick read aloud Lawrence's steamy, steamy comments. Lawrence said, of Larry David, "I'm in love with him, and I have been for a really long time." She added, "I worship Woody Allen, but I don't feel it below the belt the way I do for Larry David."

David, in front of the New Yorker Festival audience, reportedly replied, "Smart kid. It's a shame that I'm about 40 years older than she is." He continued:

"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."

Please no one ask Woody Allen.
