In an interview with British television network Channel 4 Wednesday, Jennifer Lawrence expressed her frustration with climate change deniers and the Trump presidency.
Lawrence, when asked how she felt about the changes she’s seen in the United States over the past year said, “You know, it’s this new language that’s forming. I don’t even recognise it. It’s also 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 that we really have is through voting.”
Lawrence then continued to discuss the hurricanes (Harvey, and the impending Irma) that have been wreaking havoc in the States the past two weeks. “You know, you’re watching these hurricanes now, and it’s really hard, especially while promoting this movie, not to feel Mother Nature’s rage and wrath,” said Lawrence.
The actress explained earlier on in her interview that her character in “Mother!” represents Earth – which may explain why promoting the film has been “really hard” for the actress as natural disasters continue to occur.
Lawrence also said that she found “it was really startling” to see Trump in office. Lawrence has always been outspoken when it comes to her disapproval of the president, and famously said she felt that if Trump were to become president it would be “the end of the world.”
