Jennifer Lawrence, Who Told Trump 'F–ck You,' Says America Must Move Past 'Divide and Anger'

“If you’re preaching acceptance, accept immigrants, accept Muslims, accept everybody.”

Jennifer Lawrence previously told people to get "enraged" over President Trump and told him "f–ck you," but she now says that Americans need to get past their "divide and anger."

In a cover story interview with Vogue published Wednesday, Lawrence spoke of her wish to become "a bridge” for people who disagree.

“We can’t continue this divide and anger. There are issues affecting us as human beings, not as liberals and not as Republicans. We have to protect the foundation of this country, and acceptance,” Lawrence told the magazine.

“If you’re preaching acceptance, accept immigrants, accept Muslims, accept everybody,” she added.

She says this after expressing nothing but rage and disdain towards Trump and his supporters. 

“If Donald Trump becomes president, that will be the end of the world,” she said in 2015 at a promotional press junket.

During an appearance last May on the Graham Norton Show, she recalled attending a concert where Trump was also present. 

“I was at a concert that I heard he was attending, so I had my full security, I was like, ‘Find Donald Trump,’” Lawrence explained. “Because I was adamant on finding him and then making a video of me going, ‘Hey Trump, f*ck you!’”

Following his win, Lawrence wrote a post-election message to women saying they should be enraged.

“Do not let this defeat you—let this enrage you! Let it motivate you! Let this be the fire you didn’t have before. If you are an immigrant, if you are a person of color, if you are LGBTQ+, if you are a woman—don’t be afraid, be loud!” she wrote at the time.

But hey, maybe she's come to her senses since then.
