If you ever need to know the definition of “hypocrisy” but don’t have a dictionary handy, just ask Hollywood. The entertainment industry is full of double-talk and insincerity, and right now the queen of quackery might be Jennifer Lawrence.
The outspoken “Hunger Games” actress must be starving for attention, if her recent sanctimonious ramblings are any indication. After repeatedly bashing President Trump, Lawrence changed her tune and declared she was going to stay out of politics.
She managed to last a mere couple of days before jumping right back into the political fray.
“I’ve always thought that it was a good idea to stay out of politics,” Lawrence stated in a recent issue of Vanity Fair.
“My family obviously hates every time I talk about politics because it’s hard to see your kid get criticized and they live in Kentucky, where nobody is really liking what I’m saying,” she explained.
Newsflash, J-Law: It’s most of America, not just Kentucky.
Regardless, focusing on her budding career of being a less interesting Scarlett Johansson instead of spouting vapid opinions about every political issue seemed like a smart choice. It was short-lived.
After President Trump pointed out that violence in video games and Hollywood movies might be a factor in the culture of school shootings, Jennifer Lawrence broke her own “stay out of politics” rule and jumped to defend the depiction of violent murders on film.
“I think the problems (sic) is guns not the entertainment industry,” she lectured The Associated Press during a red carpet event, apparently unable to string a proper English sentence together when somebody else hadn’t written the script.
“The same kind of violence is in different parts of the country that don’t have as many problems as we do,” Lawrence declared. We re-read that statement ten times and still have no idea what she meant to say.
It gets better. The middle school dropout-turned-“policy expert” also whined about mixing politics and entertainment … despite being a celebrity who constantly mixes politics and entertainment.
“I think that, you know, we’re the entertainment industry. At some point, there has to be a separation between politics and the entertainment industry or we’re going to suffer,” she told the red carpet reporter, according to Fox News.
“This is, it’s an art. And it’s an art to entertain and, as an industry, we will suffer and people need to take that responsibility on themselves,” Lawrence scolded.
Yes, Jennifer Lawrence is worried that Hollywood might “suffer” if America tries to cut back on the amount of violence in movies. Forget those 17 dead bodies in a Florida school — the real victim is Lawrence’s career, you see.
And that career has flourished thanks in part to on-screen violence. As Breitbart pointed out, Lawrence is seen pulling the trigger in many of her films.
Her latest movie features her as a sex-obsessed assassin, and the Internet Movie Firearms Database reveals that the actress has used Glocks, 12 gauge shotguns, and .45 caliber 1911s in several movies over the last few years.
On guns, political lectures, and everything in between, Hollywood is completely two-faced. The elites haven’t noticed it yet, but Americans are tired of this empty rhetoric and hypocrisy.
