Jenner Lawrence is opening up about her political views.
The 30-year-old Hunger Games actress got candid about politics during the Dear Media Absolutely Not podcast episode on Wednesday (October 21).
The Oscar-winning actress joined Wednesday’s episode of the Dear Media Absolutely Not podcast, where she explained to host Heather McMahan what made her change her mind.
“I grew up Republican. My first time voting, I voted for John McCain. I was a little Republican,” she said, saying that her upbringing allowed her to “see the fiscal benefits of some of the Republican policies.”
She also said “the social issues weren’t in line with [her] views,” and as she grew older, she “changed [her] politics based on the things [she] learned.”
She also said that the election of the current President of the United States “changed everything” for her.
“This is an impeached president who’s broken many laws and has refused to condemn white supremacy, and it feels like there has been a line drawn in the sand. I don’t think it’s right…it just changes things for me,” she said.
“I don’t want to support a president who supports white supremacists.”
She also compared the current political climate to the time of Barack Obama in office, when the public would “go days, maybe weeks, without thinking about the president because everything would generally be okay.”
She was recently announced as a co-star in an incredibly star-filled ensemble production. Find out what it is!
