In an interview with Vanity Fair, The Hunger Games star, Jennifer Lawrence, argued that Democrats made a “huge mistake” in their aggressive treatment of Trump supporters.
“The Democrats made a huge mistake by chastising the Trump supporters, and that was disgusting to me,” the Oscar-winner said. “Of course they’re not going to vote for Hillary Clinton; they’re going to vote for Donald Trump. You laughed at them when their plight is very real.”
“I’ve always thought that it was a good idea to stay out of politics,” Lawrence continued. “Twenty-five percent of America identifies as liberal and I need more than 25 percent of America to go see my movies. It’s not wise, career-speaking, to talk about politics. When Donald Trump got sworn into office, that fucking changed.”
“My family obviously hates every time I talk about politics because it’s hard to see your kid get criticized and they live in Kentucky, where nobody is really liking what I’m saying,” she continued.
The 27-year-old actresses, is one of the countless celebrities vocally opposed to Trump’s presidency and claimed in December that she was “waiting” to throw a martini in his face.
Despite her hostility Trump supporters, the 27-year-old star revealed last year that she would take a break from acting in order to help “fix our democracy.”
“I’m going to take the next year off,” Lawrence told Entertainment Tonight earlier this month. “It doesn’t have anything to do with partisan [politics]. It’s just anti-corruption and stuff trying to pass state by state laws that can help prevent corruption, fix our democracy.”
