The One Direction star has had a crush on the Silver Linings Playbook actress for months and he has now acted on his feelings asking her to "chill out" with him when he heads to the city in the coming weeks.
Harry, 19, is hoping to get a chance to woo Jennifer, 23, while he enjoys some time off following the end of 1D's tour, which wrapped up in Tokyo, Japan, on Saturday.
A source told the Daily Star newspaper: "Harry has sent Jen a message telling her he's coming to LA to chill out after the band's world tour.
"He's said he hopes they can hang out together and see where it leads.
"He also wants to show her his new LA pad. She is flattered and has told him she likes playing 1D songs."
Jennifer dated Skins star Nicholas Hoult for two years after they met on the set of X-Men: First Class. They later split in January this year but have been seen together on several occasions since officially breaking up, most recently at the wrap party of their new movie, X-Men: Days of Future Past, in Montreal, Canada, at which they arrived hand-in-hand.
Harry is renowned for his womanising ways and has dated TV presenter Caroline Flack, 33, and Taylor Swift, 23.
The pop heartthrob recently admitted he has a crush on Jennifer, saying: "Sometimes you see girls walking down the street proper dressed up, but they can't walk because their shoes are dodgy.
"Jennifer dresses cool. I like her at all those big awards things."
