In a lengthy piece about actress Jennifer Lawrence, Vogue noted that the celebrity has spoken to her therapist about recurring nightmares she has had regarding Tucker Carlson. Carlson is a popular conservative television personality with a show on the Fox News Channel.
Vogue noted that the 2016 election had created a rift in Lawrence’s family. “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 noted.
When asked whether she still engages in political exchanges with her family members who live in Kentucky, Lawrence said, “I broach the subject in the sense that I unleash text messages. Just: Boom. Boom. Boom. Boom. Boom. They don’t respond. And then I’ll feel bad and send a picture of the baby.”
The actress became pregnant in her early 20s, and while she had intended to terminate the pregnancy, she ended up miscarrying. “I had a miscarriage alone in Montreal,” she said. Later, after getting married, she became pregnant again and wanted to have a child, but suffered another miscarriage and had to have a dilation and curettage procedure.
Lawrence had a child earlier this year. “I remember a million times thinking about it while I was pregnant. Thinking about the things that were happening to my body. And I had a great pregnancy. I had a very fortunate pregnancy. But every single second of my life was different. And it would occur to me sometimes: What if I was forced to do this?”
Lawrence was distraught that Donald Trump got elected as 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,'” Lawrence said. “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?“
