Posted on 11/12/2015 12:20:44 PM PST by Pinkbell
In a new Vogue feature, Academy Award-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence described the reason behind her political affiliation, including why she doesn't support the Republican Party. And the Hunger Games star's logic is simple.
"I was raised a Republican, but I just can't imagine supporting a party that doesn't support women's basic rights," Lawrence told Vogue. Many of the Republican presidential hopefuls have identified as pro-life. Some have advocated for defunding Planned Parenthood, which offers reproductive health services to women.
"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," Lawrence told Vogue.
In the profile, published Thursday and which will serve as Vogue's December cover story, gives readers a look inside Lawrence's mind. In the feature, penned by Jonathan Van Meter, Lawrence talks shop, dishes about her celebrity peers, ruminates on her meteoric rise from her childhood on Kentucky farms and to topping a Forbes list as the world's highest-paid actress. Lawrence also got candid about her love life â which is currently devoid of romance, she said.
One of the occasions on which Van Meter met with Lawrence happened to coincide with the day Kim Davis was released from jail, on Sept. 8. The notorious Kentucky country clerk was detained after she refused to administer marriage licenses to same-sex couples despite the Supreme Court's June vote that ultimately legalized same-sex marriage across the United States.
Lawrence said Davis was a "lady who makes me embarrassed to be from Kentucky."
"Don't even say her name in this house, all those people holding their crucifixes, which may as well be pitchforks, thinking they're fighting the good fight," Lawrence told Vogue. "I grew up in Kentucky. I know how they are."

Women's basic rights? Liberals can never be specific. They always couch things in pretty words like "women's rights" or "women's health." Republicans aren't against women's rights or women's health. We're against ABORTION. One thing. If liberals are so proud of abortion, why can't they specify and say that one thing? It's like how they can't say pro-abortion. They say pro-choice. Republicans aren't against choice; we're against ABORTION.
Also, she throws Kim Davis and Christians [some of whom I'm sure watch her movies] under the bus, but that's thoroughly unsurprising. Those horrible, crucifix carrying folks from Kentucky, ought to ensure she doesn't make a dime off of them.
Pretty on the outside doesn’t always equal smart on the inside.
I dont think she is all that pretty on the outside either
the bill of Rights ARE Basic rights for EVERYONE!
What an idiot!
This is funny coming from someone who supports the suppression of free speech and the right to bear arms.
I like her as an actress. Was really hoping she would stay away from the leftist propaganda and just do movies. But she’s all of a sudden started doing this over the past few months and it’s too bad.
She’s been Hollyweirdized. Sorry, honey, but infanticide isn’t a “women’s basic right.” Neither is faux marriage.
President Snow got to her.
Alas, requiem for a mockingjay.
She works for the most sexist major industry in the country and it’s lock,stock and barrel Dems.
Sorry.....Who’s Jennifer Lawrence?
Waaaaah.....if I kill my baby you shouldn’t like, make me feel bad and stuff. Meanie!
Big name actress. She has done the Hunger Games trilogy.
“It’s 2015 and gay people can get married and we think that we’ve come so far, so, yay!”
You mean, how far we’ve fallen.
God has a way of dealing with miscreant children, who continually mock Him and His edicts. It doesn’t end well for them, lesson one.
Who is this “Jennifer Lawrence” person? Is she famous or important or just another Hollyweird liberal?
Just shut up and ....never mind. Just shut up
Her quote: “I’m effing stupid!”
Audrey Hepburn was pretty on the outside (as well as the inside) until the day she died. These libtard actresses with an inflated opinion of themselves won’t be.
I was really dying to know Jennifer’s opinion on politics./s
Apparently she really thinks that people care.
This is the Dumb Broad that Ted Cruz absolutely Destroyed in an Interview when she confronted him.
Basically Got her to admits she is a mini-fascist at heart who would force people to do things they don't want to do or else!
