In a recent interview with British media, the multimillionaire actress Jennifer Lawrence suggests that the destructive hurricanes the U.S. is being hit with is the “wrath” of Mother Nature — for electing Donald Trump as president.
The interview covered everything from the debunked gender wage gap, man-made climate change and Trump’s election. Some discussion about the movie Mother! Lawrence is meant to promote was covered too.
“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.”
The reporter goes on to ask if the president is “confusing” to her. The actress replied: “I don’t find him confusing. I think I know exactly what he is.”
The craziness starts at the 11:30 mark:
