In the wide-ranging interview, conducted by Oprah Winfrey, Lawrence also opened up about being asked to participate in a nude lineup when she was auditioning for a role.

Jennifer Lawrence has never met President Donald Trump, but she knows exactly what she's going to say ― and order to drink ― if she ever runs into him.

Below are the six most interesting revelations from the THR interview. You're immediately hit with fear. "Or at least I was". If I'm on this commission, and (if) I get an email about somebody being treated badly on a set, I can send an email.

"I had been climbing and working and fighting, and I remember a year ago just getting hit with fear". So I needed a moment to process everything because I thought I knew this guy, and then he's being accused of rape. Now, she's speaking up about the sexual assault and harassment allegations that have come to light since Harvey Weinstein was accused of sexual misconduct. I was just like, 'I can't, ' after hearing that.

"Red Sparrow" is expected to come out in spring 2018.

She founded the Jennifer Lawrence Foundation, which "assists and empowers charitable organizations that fulfill children's vital needs and drive arts awareness and participation", according to the site's mission statement. Winfrey followed up, to which Lawrence responded, "I think so".

She said she found out just how negative the reaction to "mother!" was by checking Twitter. "It was violating on a sexual level". It's like, there's not really anything anybody can do because the behavior is so normalized.

That changes as you grow in your career. And then you become more powerful, and people start f**king with you less. "We'd be able to pass state-by-state legislation to help [stop] corruption in our government", she continued. "I shouldn't have done it, but I'm at peace with knowing that I couldn't not".

She said she hopes to see "social change" and that there needs to be equality between men and women for that to happen.

As to why she spoke up about it, Lawrence felt she didn't have an option, crediting the 2014 Sony hack which exposed gender-based pay disparity within that company. "I was adamant on finding him and making a video of me going, 'Hey, Trump". "I want to travel around to the areas I'm from so that people realize that corruption is a completely nonpartisan issue".

In the latest issue of The Hollywood Reporter, the Oscar victor was asked if she'd want to meet the sitting president. "I've got a pretty good speech". And it ends with a martini to the face. But it isn't just him she's ready to have it out with.

"They are all disgusting, and not one is more horrifying than the next, but being able to hear when the woman wore the microphone and Harvey was telling her to watch him shower - I felt sick in my bones for an entire day", the actress said. "I watch different characters on the news, and I'm like, 'You just wait.'" Would Lawrence be prepared if and when an opportunity presents itself? "I want to be talking to high schoolers and college students", she said. I'll give you a hint - it's not nice.

In the realm of "Celebrities!" "And I'm not proud of that, but that's what comes from my heart".

That's not the direction Lawrence went at all, though.
