In a conversation with Oprah Winfrey for The Hollywood Reporter, the 27-year-old actress said she knew he was a hard man but considered him a fatherly figure and didn't know about his alleged predatory behavior. It's not easy to face criticism on a global scale.

"I didn't know that he was a rapist", she told the publication. "Every day, we wake up to a myriad of headlines that deeply impact us, from around the globe", continued Lawrence, who is the youngest person ever to receive the Sherry Lansing Leadership Award. "It's taking somebody's intellectual property but also my body". I had been climbing and working and fighting, and I remember a year ago just getting hit with fear. I've been probably more insecure after previous year, and I don't know if that's just a feeling of: I've got more to lose, I have more people to disappoint.

In an earlier statement made when the accusations of sexual assault and harassment came out abot Weisntein, Lawrence said in a statement that she had been left "deeply disturbed" by the allegations, which saw the producer fired from his own company, The Weinstein Company, as well as the resignation of many board members, describing them as "inexcusable and absolutely upsetting".

Lawrence's next project is a film called "Red Sparrow", and it also pushes the actress in a new direction.

"Red Sparrow was sexual, and I haven't done anything sexy or sexual", she added. And the more he wasn't getting it, the funnier I thought it was, and I kept leaning into it. "And then I'm going to go on campus tours", she said. Lawrence said. "As long as there is one group of humans that is overruling another one, there's going to be abuse". "I want to be talking to high schoolers and college students". I was just like, 'I can't, ' after hearing that.

When asked if she'd ever like to meet Donald Trump, Lawrence said, she was prepared.

As far as what words she might exchange with Trump, Lawrence said, "I'll give you a hint - it's not nice". (Laughter.) I have something to say for all of them. "You wouldn't want me to say it to you".
