Jennifer Lawrence is interviewed by the great Oprah Winfrey in the latest issue of The Hollywood Reporter.
Check out what the 27-year-old Oscar winner shared with the mag and Lady O below:
On Harvey Weinstein: “We’ve all worked with him, but everybody needed a moment. Just speaking for myself, I had known him since I was 20, and he had only ever been nice to me — except for the moments that he wasn’t, and then I called him an asshole, and we moved on. He was paternal to me. So I needed a moment to process everything because I thought I knew this guy, and then he’s being accused of rape. We all knew he was a dog, we knew that he was a…tough guy, a brute, a tough guy to negotiate with. I didn’t know that he was a rapist. And it’s so widespread, the abuse, from so many different people — it’s directors, it’s producers — that I think everybody needed to [process it]. Everybody needs to deal with this in their own way; everybody needs to heal.”
On if she wants to meet Donald Trump: “I think so. I’ve got a pretty good speech. And it ends with a martini to the face. (Laughter.) I have something to say for all of them. I watch different characters on the news, and I’m like, ‘You just wait.’”
On three people she’d like to have dinner with: “Scott Disick, Luann [de Lesseps] from Real Housewives of New York, Bethenny Frankel. And I’m not proud of that, but that’s what comes from my heart.”
On the best advice she’s been given: “It was probably by you [Oprah Winfrey]. You just said it under your breath. You were talking, and then under your breath you said, “You have to teach somebody how to treat you.” That’s the smartest thing I’ve ever heard.
