Just like her iconic character in the Hunger Games, Jennifer Lawrence takes to Donald Trump in the same way Katniss Everdeen takes to President Snow. And it's a political stand that she and her Hunger Games co-stars make no secret of.
Entertainment Weekly reports that Lawrence, and co-star Liam Hemsworth both think that the Republican presidential candidate winning the seat at the White House will signal the end of the world. Meanwhile, Josh Hutcherson, the Hunger Games' third lead, thinks that the Trump's campaign is "unreal" and a "publicity stunt."
Lawrence agrees with this; she cannot seem to fathom the phenomena and decides that Trump's presidential bid is either a reality TV experiment "or it's Hillary's brilliant idea."
Apparently, what Lawrence intensely opposes is Trump's lack of political correctness. Lately, Trump has made a lot of sensational announcements referring to Christian persecution in America. Trump's declarations spout his intent to champion the downtrodden, with an obvious reference to the incident involving imprisoned Kentucky clerk Kim Davis who refused to process a same-sex marriage license.
In the same informal interview with EW, Lawrence makes a sarcastic remark about having such a non-PC national leader take the reins: "'That's who I want representing my country, somebody politically incorrect. That will just be perfect.'"
So who is Lawrence rooting for? Judging from past developments, Lawrence just might be on Clinton's team. The Wrap reports that the people behind James Ponsoldt's indie biopic Rodham has always had Lawrence in mind - for whatever reason - for the much coveted role of Hillary Clinton, despite the decision having been a toss up between Lawrence and Carey Mulligan.
In April this year, Rodham insiders claim that "if Lawrence wanted to play Clinton, the producers would have a hard time turning her down considering the fact that she's coming off an Oscar win for Silver Linings Playbook and her box office prowess is only growing," The Wrap reports.
The problem is, Lawrence's full schedule will not cooperate with the producers' goal to release Rodham before the 2016 presidential campaign.
