Movie Star Vows To Throw Martini In The President's Face

Donald Trump Jr. apparently did not think Jennifer Lawrence was very funny on Wednesday when she threatened to assault his father.

The actress, during an interview with Oprah Winfrey for The Hollywood Reporter, remarked that if she met the president she would make a “pretty good speech” ending “with a martini to the face.” Trump Jr. fired back on Twitter, declaring that he was “pretty sure that’s not how it would end.”

Others also responded to Lawrence’s comment.

The Huffington Post declared: “It’s official. We live in an age where there are no rules, social media is lawless, and celebrity and politics are all the same damn thing. … We’re not completely sure about this, Don Jr., but there’s a good chance that if JLaw runs into you, that martini may end up on a different face.”

Twitter user Julian Routh described the war of words between the movie star and the president’s eldest son as “the feud I never knew I wanted,” while Joe Concha tweeted: ‘Donald Trump Jr. vs Jennifer Lawrence. It’s like Bobby Riggs vs. Billie Jean King, but different.”

Jared Rizzi had this advice: “Make sure you get attorney-client privilege for whatever you’re implying on the other side of that ellipsis.” That prompted Gary Legum to reply: “True, federal prisons generally frown on guests bringing martinis into the visiting room to meet inmates.”

Lawrence told Vogue in 2015 that while she “was raised a Republican,” she “just can’t imagine supporting a party that doesn’t support women’s basic rights.” She continued: “Gay people can get married and we think that we’ve come so far, so, yay! But have we? I don’t want to stay quiet about that stuff."

When asked about the 2016 race for the White House, the actress said: “My view on the election is pretty cut-and-dried. 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.”

Some people find it surprising that such a big star, reportedly the highest-paid actress in the world, is willing to lose fans by speaking out about politics.

“She’s feisty, a real fighter,” Elizabeth Banks, Lawrence’s fellow cast member on “The Hunger Games,” told Vogue. “It’s a little bit of her-against-the-world now, you know? When the world shows up at your doorstep and wants a lot of things from you, you get a little punk rock.”

Two months ago, Lawrence wrote an article for Lenny, a newsletter created by “Girls” co-stars Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner. The essay’s title posed the question: “Why Do I Make Less than My Male Co-Stars?”

Lawrence wrote: “When the Sony hack happened, and I found out how much less I was being paid than the lucky people with dicks, I didn’t get mad at Sony. I got mad at myself. I failed as a negotiator because I gave up early. … I didn’t want to seem ‘difficult’ or ‘spoiled.’” Hillary Clinton praised the article by tweeting: “Brava.”

However, others slammed the actress on social media. “What I was trying to say is that we’re not victims,” Lawrence explained. “I am holding my own self back. The men aren’t to be blamed for asking for more and getting it.”

She said she has “a taboo impulsivity,” meaning: “If you shouldn’t say it, it’s all of a sudden coming out of my mouth.”
