The Hunger Games star in a recent Vogue interview shared about her personal life and how the 2016 election between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton took a major part in creating a rift in her relationship with her family. The actress shared regarding that election,

“It breaks my heart because America had the choice between a woman and a dangerous, dangerous jar of mayonnaise. And they were like, Well, we can’t have a woman. Let’s go with the jar of mayonnaise.” 

Adding to her statement, where the ‘dangerous jar of mayonnaise’ won the election,

“I don’t want to disparage my family, but I know that a lot of people are in a similar position with their families. How could you raise a daughter from birth and believe that she doesn’t deserve equality? How?”

Lila Neugebauer directed Causeway– the psychological drama film starring Lawrence and Brian Tyree Henry is slated to be released in theatres and on Apple TV+ on November 4, 2022.
