Jennifer Lawrence, one of the world’s most high-profile and successful actors, talks to Jackie Long about hew new film Mother! She also gives her views on the environment, the gender pay-gap, and the current state of affairs in the United States of America.
The actress Jennifer Lawrence suggested the recent destructive hurricanes to hit the United States are punishment —
Mother Nature’s “wrath” — for voting Donald Trump into the White House.
While promoting her new film Mother! on Wednesday, the Oscar-winning actress touched on all-things political, such as the widely debunked gender wage gap, the “settled” science of man-made climate change, and the election of Donald Trump
“It’s scary,” the actress told the Channel 4 reporter when it was suggested there is “an end-of-days feeling” in the world that is “truer” in the U.S. “than anywhere else.”
“You know, it’s this new language that’s forming,” Lawrence said. “I don’t even recognize it. It’s also scary to know that climate change is due to human activity, and we continue to ignore it, and the only voice that we really have is through voting —”
“And you have voted, very recently, as a country,” the reporter interjected.
“And we voted, and it was really startling,” said the actress. “You know, you’re watching these hurricanes now, and it’s really hard, especially while promoting this movie, not to, not to feel Mother Nature’s rage, or wrath,” said the Hunger Games star.
Hurricane Harvey hit Texas last week, causing billions in destruction and leaving at least 70 Americans dead. A massive and deadly hurricane approaching Florida, Hurricane Irma, has already triggered parts of Florida to evacuate.
Lawrence also agreed with the British reporter that America is in “a time of huge division.”
“It’s really polarizing and upsetting,” she said. “You know, I’ve heard things and seen things on TV in my own country that devastate me and make me sick, and it’s just really confusing.”
When asked if she finds the president to be “confusing,” the actress replied: “I don’t find him confusing. I think I know exactly what he is.”
The millionaire also lamented the “unfair” gender pay gap (which is not real according to any reputable economist).
