Jennifer Lawrence recently made a shocking announcement that she is taking a break from acting to “fix our Democracy.” Unfortunately for her, the famous actress is forgetting one important detail. Now, she’s completely humiliated.
The Hollywood superstar recently appeared on Entertainment Tonight to announce that she is taking a break from her acting career for a “higher calling.” Lawrence proudly said that she is going to help “fix our democracy,” during the interview that aired on Friday, February 16, 2018. According to Breitbart, Lawrence shocked the entertainment industry with her announcement, but it didn’t have the same effect on conservatives on social media.
“I’m going to take the next year off,” Lawrence told Entertainment Tonight, explaining how she will work with a self-described anti-corruption nonprofit during her break from film. “I’m going to be working with this organization as a part of Represent.US… trying to get young people engaged politically on a local level.”
There’s obviously a problem with Lawrence jumping into the non-partisan political realm. She is already infamous for being a tremendous opponent of President Donald Trump.
However, Lawrence claimed, “It doesn’t have anything to do with partisan politics. It’s just anti-corruption and stuff trying to pass state by state laws that can help prevent corruption, fix our democracy.”
Grassroots? I highly doubt Lawrence will be able to keep her big Hollywood nose out of national politics even if her life depended on it.
The Hunger Games diva dropped a clue about her desire to temporarily break away from acting last November during an interview with Elle magazine. She explained that she had the idea to trade the spotlight for a different kind of lifestyle involving a farm and activism.
“I want to get a farm,” the Academy Award-winner told the lifestyle magazine. “I want to be, like, milking goats.”
I wonder if Lawrence could actually trade the red carpet for goat’s milk every morning? She undoubtedly has already proven that she’s capable of getting knee deep in Trump-hating, so political activism shouldn’t be a huge problem.
Jennifer Lawrence hadn’t offered details of her plans to step away from acting until the recent interview with Entertainment Tonight. Oddly enough, her announcement comes just before she has several films scheduled for release this year.
The 27-year-old soon-to-be activist is currently in the middle of a press tour for her upcoming spy thriller Red Sparrow which is due out in March 2018. Lawrence reportedly plays a ballerina-turned-spy in the film.
In addition, Lawrence is said to be filming her fourth X-Men film in which she will return once again as the shape-shifting mutant Mystique. The film is titled X-Men: Dark Phoenix and will be released in November 2018. Lawrence is also expected to star in the role of billionaire tech entrepreneur Elizabeth Holmes in writer-director Adam McKay’s bio-drama Bad Blood.
The thing that Jennifer Lawrence is forgetting is that she’s already gone way too far left to be a non-partisan activist. In 2015, she was quoted as saying that it would be the “end of the world” if Trump were to become POTUS. In August 2017, Lawrence began to moderate her political speech and insist that Americans with different political opinions find a “bridge” between each other.
In my opinion, that talk is highly suspect coming from someone who has been so outspoken about her hate for our President. In addition to a dozen other Hollywood stars, Lawrence signed a letter to Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) pressing them to pass legal protection for DACA recipients. Lawrence also participated in the Women’s March on the anniversary of President Donald Trump’s inauguration in January 2018.
In my opinion, Lawrence should stick to her acting career and leave political activism to everyday people with everyday lives. Hollywood stars are rarely in touch with the reality that the rest of America wakes up to every day, and their ability to entertain doesn’t equate to real life experience or credibility.
