  • Jennifer Lawrence Tells Oprah She Wants to Form a Commission Against Sexual Abuse in Hollywoodfacebook dialogPinterest

Jennifer also implied it wasn't just Trump she wants to have a stern word with, either, saying: "I have something to say for all of them".

As far as what words she might exchange with Trump, Lawrence said, "I'll give you a hint - it's not nice".

She also said that harassment and abuse won't stop until there is gender equality and more social awareness.

But in a new interview with Oprah Winfrey for The Hollywood Reporter, J.Law reflected on how this huge celebrity and mega success has made her afraid of the public turning against her.

"He was paternal to me", she added. "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.

Aside from the fact that her neighbors are Zoe Saldana and Cameron Diaz, Lawrence really does sound just like us. I know every studio head in town.

Jennifer Lawrence was sickened by the reports. Lawrence brought up her reaction when she learned of the allegations against Weinstein and how it personally affected her.

She is ready to take chances again with her upcoming film Red Sparrow, out in March, which features her in a sexual role - a first for the actor who was the victim of a nude photo hack more than three years ago.

"I've got a pretty good speech". I loved this so much, and it just broke my heart, especially for Darren [Aronofsky] because he loved this person. "And that's why it's so important to talk about abuse, all of the different forms of abuse, because he didn't lay a finger on her, and I felt chilled to my bones".

Hollywood mogul Weinstein has been accused of sexually assaulting, raping or harassing up to 40 women, in both America and the United Kingdom, and is the subject of a criminal investigation and a class action lawsuit.

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.

Lawrence asked: "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?"

If you are a victim of sexual assault, you can visit RAINN or call its hotline at 1-800-656-4673 to receive confidential support from a trained staff member.
