Jennifer Lawrence recently shared her views regarding fellow Kentuckian and gay-marriage opponent Kim Davis. Although Lawrence is now a big fancy movie star, she comes from a rural background in the Bluegrass State. But (if you didn't already assume so), it turns out she and Davis have pretty opposing world-views.
Jennifer Lawrence just happened to be interviewed by Vogue's Jonathan Van Meter on the day that Davis got out of jail, and brought up the subject in their discussion. Jennifer Lawrence, it turns out, feels very strongly about it. Davis is the Voldemnort the Lawrence household:
The day I am at Lawrence’s house also happens to be the day after the infamous county clerk Kim Davis gets out of jail, where she had been sent for defying a court order requiring her to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Lawrence brings it up, calling her that “lady who makes me embarrassed to be from Kentucky.” Kim Davis? “Don’t even say her name in this house,” she shoots back, and then goes into a rant about “all those people holding their crucifixes, which may as well be pitchforks, thinking they’re fighting the good fight. I grew up in Kentucky. I know how they are.”
She then went on to talk about her politics more broadly:
There is a rabble-rousing spirit in Lawrence that gets stirred up when certain subjects are broached. “I was raised a Republican,” she says, “but I just can’t imagine supporting a party that doesn’t support women’s basic rights. It’s 2015 and gay people can get married and we think that we’ve come so far, so, yay! But have we? I don’t want to stay quiet about that stuff.”
And of course, Trump was brought up:
“My view on the election is pretty cut-and-dried: If Donald Trump is president of the United States, it will be the end of the world. And he’s also the best thing to happen to the Democrats ever.”
Isn't she just soooooo relatable?
