First, there's how Lawrence's next movie has made her feel sexy again after the 2014 hacking theft of her personal nude photos took that away from her.

Lawrence, who has been a pretty outspoken opponent of President Donald Trump, also revealed whether she'd ever want to meet him: "I think so".


The movie, which is scheduled to be released on March 2, stars Lawrence as a former ballerina-turned-Russian spy who falls in love with a Central Intelligence Agency officer (Joel Edgerton).

"...Red Sparrow was sexual, and I haven't done anything sexy or sexual", she told The Hollywood Reporter.

In an interview conducted by Oprah Winfrey for The Hollywood Reporter, the Academy Award victor revealed that she required time to take everything in because he had only been fatherly to her. She then went on to provide an example. "But the fact is I have been given a platform, and if I don't use it, then I don't deserve it", the actress said at The Hollywood Reporter's annual Women in Entertainment breakfast, presented by Lifetime, held Wednesday morning at Los Angeles' Milk Studios. "So I needed a moment to process everything because I thought I knew this guy, and then he's being accused of rape", the 27-year-old said.

Although Lawrence admitted she was well aware of Weinstein's reputation of being "a tough guy, a brute" and "a tough guy to negotiate with", she was shocked that he was just one of many men in a high position who abused his power.


"I would [also] love to help pass a bundle of laws [against government corruption]", she said. "I didn't know that he was a rapist". It's taking somebody's intellectual property but also my body.

Lawrence praised all the women who have come forward with allegations of sexual misconduct against a number of men in the industry, but said that all of the stories are as "horrifying" as each other.

"I'm sad by the women's stories, but I'm excited by the change that's going to come from it", she said.

She added: As long as there is one group of humans that is overruling another one, there's going to be abuse, (and) why would we be thought of as equals?
