AceShowbiz - Jennifer Lawrence weighed in on the natural disasters including Hurricane Harvey that ravaged Houston last month and Hurricane Irma that's predicted to hit Florida this weekend. She called them nature's fury in an interview with Britain's Channel 4 during a press junket of her new movie "mother!".
"It's scary. It's this new language that's forming - I don't even recognize," the Oscar-winning actress said. "It's scary to know, it's been proven through science, that climate change is due to human activity. And we continue to ignore it, and the only voice we have is through voting."
When the interviewer said American voted for Donald Trump who didn't believe in climate change, J.Law said the result was "really startling." She explained, "You're watching these hurricanes now, and it's hard - especially while promoting this movie, not to feel Mother Nature's rage and wrath."
"It's really polarizing and upsetting. I've heard things and seen things on TV in my own country that devastate and make me sick. It's really confusing," she said before adding what she thought about the President, "I don't find him confusing. I think I know exactly what he is."
Jennifer Lawrence has always been open about her political concerns. Back in 2015 when Trump announced his candidacy, she told Entertainment Weekly, "If Donald Trump becomes president, that will be the end of the world. I genuinely believe that reality television has reached the ultimate place where now even things like this might just be for entertainment."
She then wrote an essay after the business mogul won the election, "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!"
