Jennifer Lawrence tells Vogue magazine that Kentucky County Clerk Kim Davis, who was jailed in September for refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, makes her feel “embarrassed to be from Kentucky.”
The Oscar-winning actress didn’t shy away from political topics during an interview for the fashion publication’s December issue. She went off when Davis’ name was brought up.
“Don’t even say her name in this house,” said Lawrence. “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.”
The Hunger Games star confessed she was raised a Republican, but refuses to support a political 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!” said Lawrence. “But have we? I don’t want to stay quiet about that stuff.”
The 25-year-old also expressed her views on the upcoming presidential election and doubled down on her contempt for Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump.
“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,” she said.
