Jennifer Lawrence: If Donald Trump becomes President, it will be the end of the world
By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 10/01/2015
Jennifer Lawrence wants to take down Donald Trump just like Katniss Everdeen attempts to dethrone President Snow in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2.
Lawrence views the possibility of Trump, a controversial Republican candidate, becoming the next President of the United States as a complete disaster.
"If Donald Trump becomes president, that will be the end of the world," Lawrence toldEntertainment Weekly while promoting the final installment for The Hunger Games, set to be released in theaters November 20.
"I'll back you up on that," added Lawrence's co-star Liam Hemsworth, who plays her best friend and love interest Gale Hawthorne.
Another parallel runs between Lawrence's opinion of Trump and her hit movie. "The Games" are basically controlled by government employees tasked with creating an entertaining reality TV show for viewers.
On that note, Trump is well known for his role on the reality TV show The Celebrity Apprentice, which makes citizens question the legitimacy of his current political campaign.
"I genuinely believe that reality television has reached the ultimate place where now even things like this might just be for entertainment," Lawrence told EW. "It's either that or it's [Hillary Clinton]'s brilliant idea."
Josh Hutcherson, who plays Peeta Mellark in The Hunger Games -- the third member of Everdeen's love triangle with Hawthorne -- also apparently thinks Trump in the Oval Office is a joke.
"It's a publicity stunt," Hutcherson said. "It can't be real."
Lawrence doesn't even appreciate the fact Trump says what's on his mind, which a lot of his supporters love about him.
"I was watching him on the campaign trail and one guy said, 'I love Donald Trump because he's saying everything I'm thinking and I just can't say it because of the PC factor.' And I'm thinking, 'You are absolutely right. That's who I want representing my country, somebody politically incorrect. That will just be perfect,'" the actress explained.
