Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence recently revealed that the incumbent president of the United States, Donald Trump, made her rethink her political views.

While making an appearance in the “Absolutely Not” podcast, the actress opened up about how her views on politics changed after Trump was elected head of the nation, Vulture reported

During the discussion, Lawrence said that she grew up in a Republican household and voted for a Republican candidate when she got the opportunity to vote for the first time.

The “American Hustle” star said that she changed her mind as she grew older and her political views also changed when Trump took office.

“I grew up Republican. My first time voting, I voted for John McCain. I was a little Republican. I could see the fiscal benefits of some of the Republican policies. But for me, when Donald Trump got elected, everything changed,” Vulture quoted Lawrence, as saying.

The acclaimed actress admitted that celebrities like her actually find it hard to talk about politics.

“It’s extremely hard to talk about politics. You don’t want to. I am an actor and I want people to see my movies,” Lawrence said.

Lawrence is one of the notable Hollywood stars who openly endorsed Joe Biden and Kamala Harris for the upcoming 2020 U.S. presidential election.

In an interview with V Magazine, the “Red Sparrow” actress shared her thoughts on why voting is so important and also disclosed the people she is voting in the election. 

“Voting is the foundation of our democracy and our freedom. And I would consider this upcoming election the most consequential of our lifetime. I’m voting for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris this year,” Lawrence told the magazine.

Meanwhile, on the professional front, Lawrence will be next seen in Adam McKay’s film “Don’t Look Up.” The film revolves around a pair of astronomers who are trying to warn everyone on Earth that a giant meteorite is going to destroy the planet in six months.

Apart from Lawrence, the movie is filled with actors and actresses who have won or been nominated for an Academy Award. The cast includes the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio, Meryl Streep, Cate Blanchett, Jonah Hill, Timothée Chalamet, Matthew Perry, Ariana Grande, Kid Cudi, and Himesh Patel.

“Don’t Look Up” is scheduled to hit the theaters in 2021.
