In a recent interview with Vogue, actress Jennifer Lawrence revealed that she has "nightmares" about Fox News host Tucker Carlson, and that she has had to work "to forgive" her conservative family members.
The interview, which will be published in the October edition of the magazine features a long conversation about motherhood and her roles in movies, which frequently takes a turn into political territory.
In a portion of the interview that took place back in June, shortly after the Supreme Court turned decisions regarding the legality of abortion back to individual states, with writer Abby Aguirre writing: "she warned me that she was in a mood. Not a bad mood, exactly. But a consistently emotional one, brought on by the Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade a few days earlier."
"Much of her disappointment was directed at certain relatives back in Louisville, Kentucky, where she’d grown up, including her father. The 2016 election had torn open a rift in her family," Aguirre wrote, noting that repairing the rift has been an "ongoing process," especially since Lawrence game birth earlier this year.
"She even discussed with her therapist the recurring nightmares she has about Tucker Carlson," Aguirre wrote.
"I just worked so hard in the last five years to forgive my dad and my family and try to understand: It’s different. The information they are getting is different. Their life is different," Lawrence said.
"I’ve tried to get over it and I really can’t. I can’t. I’m sorry I’m just unleashing, but I can’t fuck with people who aren’t political anymore. You live in the United States of America. You have to be political. It’s too dire. Politics are killing people," she later added.
Aguirre wrote that while Lawrence had "not been entirely in Hillary Clinton’s corner," she was angry that US voters had selected Donald Trump as their president in 2016.
"It breaks my heart because America had the choice between a woman and a dangerous, dangerous jar of mayonnaise. And they were like, 'Well, we can’t have a woman. Let’s go with the jar of mayonnaise,'" said Lawrence.
Speaking in regards to the June Supreme Court ruling, Lawrence added, "I don’t want to disparage my family, but I know that a lot of people are in a similar position with their families. How could you raise a daughter from birth and believe that she doesn’t deserve equality? How?"
Speaking in regards to her upbringing, Lawrence said that that she had thought of herself as a Republican like her surrounding family, but that began to change at the age of 16.
Lawrence went on to bash the Supreme Court’s abortion decision as well as gun rights in the country.
Aguirre wrote: "For the moment, Lawrence was preoccupied with the midterm elections. In the days and weeks after the interview at her house, she kept thinking of more things to say. There were multiple calls, one on the Fourth of July, and at least one voice memo.
"She would send long, thought-out, fact-filled paragraphs—mini op-eds—via text. Later, on the phone, emotion would pour out," writing out a laundry list of items that Lawrence is concerned about, including "the Court’s decision expanding gun rights after the school shooting in Uvalde, and its decision limiting the EPA’s ability to regulate carbon emissions, and the average age of politicians in general."
