Two years ago, actor Jennifer Lawrence claimed Trump’s presidency would spell doom. According to a recent article, she’s now preaching “acceptance,” and asking the country to stop its divisive trend.
Speaking in Los Angles to Vogue magazine, Lawrence discussed everything from her dog Pippi to pole dancing in Vienna. The interview eventually transitioned into a discussion about Represent.Us, an organization focused on anti-corruption laws in local, state, and national government of which Lawrence has become a board member. According to the article, there are conservative and liberal voices in the organization.
Lawrence says she likes the mix. “If you’re a Republican, if you’re liberal, it doesn’t matter,” she says.
Clarifying that she isn’t a supporter of the Trump administration, Lawrence still says “there needs to be a bridge” between political ideas.
According to the magazine, Lawrence said: “We can’t continue this divide and anger. There are issues affecting us as human beings, not as liberals and not as Republicans. We have to protect the foundation of this country, and acceptance.”
Lawrence went on to chastise those “preaching acceptance,” however, and challenges people doing so to “accept immigrants, accept Muslims, accept everybody.”
Although Lawrence wasn’t one of the celebrities that vowed to leave the country if Donald Trump became president, she was a vocal detractor of his.
During a promotional tour for the final installation of the “Hunger Games” movie franchise in 2015, Lawrence told Entertainment Weekly: “If Donald Trump becomes president, that will be the end of the world.”
Then, during a 2016 appearance on the “Graham Norton Show,” Lawrence relayed that she once had the opportunity to express herself to Donald Trump, who was the GOP presidential front runner at the time.
“I was at a concert that I heard he was attending, so I had my full security, I was like, ‘Find Donald Trump. Because I was adamant on finding him and then making a video of me going, ‘Hey Trump, f*ck you!’”
Lawrence encouraged her fans to be enraged by Trump’s victory the following November. Published on Broadly, Lawrence’s message read:
“Do not let this defeat you—let this enrage you! Let it motivate you! Let this be the fire you didn’t have before. If you are an immigrant, if you are a person of color, if you are LGBTQ+, if you are a woman—don’t be afraid, be loud!”
In the same message, she pulled the feminist card and said:
“We’re all allowed to be sad that the present isn’t what we thought it was. But we mustn’t be defeated. We will keep educating ourselves and working twice as hard as the man next to us because we know now that it is not fair. It is not fair in the workplace, so you make it impossible to fail. And like Hillary, it might not work.”
Now, as Lawrence is spreading a message of unity and acceptance, she’s gearing up to join with ultra-liberal Trump-hater Amy Schumer on a comedy project that’s still in the works.
“She’s the funniest person I’ve ever met,” Lawrence is quoted as saying, referring to Schumer.
That’s a stark contrast to viewers of Schumer’s Netflix special spent bashing Trump. Back in March, the special reportedly received 1,200 reviews from Netflix subscribers. Viewers overwhelmingly panned the performance, showing their displeasure by giving it an overall average rating of 1.5 stars.
