Hunger Games star wanted Justin very badly

Jennifer Lawrence has confessed to being infatuated with Justin Timberlake when she was younger.

The Oscar-winning actress fancied Justin, 32, when he shot to fame as the young curly-haired heartthrob in boyband *NSYNC.

‘My teen crush [was] Justin Timberlake,’ says Jen, 23.

‘Early 90s Justin Timberlake though. Like *NSYNC Justin Timberlake.’

So madly in love was Jen that just seeing JT’s picture on the band’s album covers was almost too much to bear.

‘I remember buying the *NSYNC CD. Remember how CDs had like the pullout picture things?’ the Hunger Games star tells Yahoo.

‘And I was like getting so overwhelmed with like hormones I almost threw up!’
