Jennifer Lawrence, star of “The Hunger Games,” opens up about the real reason for her family’s schism and what their differing beliefs mean to her now.
The 32-year-old actress opened up in a recent Vogue interview for the October issue. Lawrence discussed her life as a mother and said she was “in a mood” because of the recent Supreme Court decision on abortion. The actress had two miscarriages when she was in her early twenties.
Later, the “Silver Linings Playbook” star opened up about her family’s political differences and how the 2016 election affected her and their relationship.
“I don’t want to disparage my family, but I know that a lot of people are in a similar position with their families. How could you raise a daughter from birth and believe that she doesn’t deserve equality? How?”
Lawrence grew up in Louisville, Kentucky, with her family and father. According to the actress, the 2016 election caused a schism among her relatives that has yet to be resolved. Lawrence’s relatives in Kentucky are said to be MAGA supporters.
The “Don’t Look Up” star also revealed that she had “recurring nightmares” about Tucker Carlson. The Fox News host has been a known criticizer of political figures Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden. He also labeled Lawrence “out of touch” in 2017 for campaigning on climate change and criticizing Donald Trump.
Recalling her complicated family feud, Lawrence emphasized the importance of people choosing a side or caring about politics. The 32-year-old actress was a known Hillary Clinton supporter who publicly campaigned for her in 2016.
“I’ve tried to get over it and I really can’t. I can’t. I’m sorry I’m just unleashing, but I can’t fuck with people who aren’t political anymore. You live in the United States of America. You have to be political. It’s too dire. Politics are killing people.”
Lawrence also stated that becoming a mother heightened her political passion and stance. Cy, her first child with husband Cooke Maroney, was born in February of this year.
Lawrence and Maroney began dating in 2018, and After announcing their engagement in February 2019, the couple married in October of the same year.
