We knew we liked you for a reason, Jen!
Jennifer Lawrence isn't just one of the most talented actors in the game, she's also one of the most outspoken celebs out there.
When she's not penning open letters to Hollywood on the gender pay gap or starring in Oscar-winning movies, J.Law somehow finds the time to speak publicly about people who are perpetuating hatred all across the country.

In a recent interview with Vogue, Jennifer got candid about her feelings on her fellow Kentucky native Kim Davis, saying:
"[The] lady who makes me embarrassed to be from Kentucky… Don't even say her name in this house!
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."
We're so sorry you had to endure bigots like her for so long, Jen!
But it's not just public figures standing in the way of gay rights that she has an issue with, because the Hunger Games actress is pretty blunt about her opinions on one particular Presidential candidate as well:
"I was raised a Republican, but I just can't imagine supporting a party that doesn't support women's basic rights. It's 2015 and 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.
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."
Our sentiments exactly!
We're just glad that a change is happening in rural areas; more and more young people are ditching the xenophobic attitudes shared by their parents, and J.Law seems like the perfect person to be leading the pack.
Do U share similar beliefs on Kim Davis and Donald Trump??
