Kentuckian Jennifer Lawrence Weighs In on Kim Davis

Kentuckian Jennifer Lawrence Weighs In on Kim Davis

Kim Davis

The Oscar-winning actress got political in a recent sit-down with Vogue.

Silver Linings Playbook and Hunger Games actress Jennifer Lawrence was her usual blunt self in Vogue's December cover interview. Without prompting, the Kentucky-born Lawrence brought up Kim Davis, the county clerk who made international news and was sent to jail when she defied court orders by refusing to provide marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

The interview with Vogue's Jonathan Van Meter took place the day after Davis was released from jail. The actress referred to the clerk as "the lady who makes me embarrassed to be from Kentucky," then added, "Don't even say her name in this house."

Lawrence, an admirer of politically minded actress Jane Fonda, pointed a finger at others like Davis and "all those people holding their crucifixes, which may as well be pitchforks, thinking they're fighting the good fight. I grew up in Kentucky. I know how they are."

The actress is also paying close attention to the election, saying, "If Donald Trump is president of the United States, it will be the end of the world. And he's also the best thing to happen to the Democrats ever."
