Jennifer Lawrence ‘GMA’ Video: Watch ‘Passengers’ Interview On ‘Good Morning America’
Jennifer Lawrence appeared on Monday’s “Good Morning America” to promote her new sci-fi movie Passengers. Watch the full “GMA” interview below!
The actress spoke to Michael Strahan in a pre-taped segment on the morning show about her film, in which she and co-star Chris Pratt leave Earth to journey 120 years into the future for life on a new planet. “I love sci-fi. I love watching sci-fi, but it was a genre I just didn’t see for myself,” Lawrence said. “Then once I read it, it was just unbelievable.” As far is if she would ever make the same excursion as her character, the actress added, “As things are right now, I can’t see just saying goodbye to everyone I know and love and just peacing out. I think the journey sounds amazing. If I could bring people, maybe I would.”
Lawrence went on to discuss the essay she wrote last month about moving forward following the presidential election. “I didn’t mean to speak to only people who voted for Hillary [Clinton],” the actress noted. “I meant to just speak to the divide. For any presidential candidate, being very extreme is scary, left or right.”
Lawrence also explained that she penned the letter for her young Hunger Games fans who are now old enough to vote. “When the election happened, I couldn’t help but think of those girls who are 18,” she said. “I completely understand when people say, ‘Just shut up and act.’ But for me there are times where I feel a real need to speak to those girls.” Watch Lawrence’s full “GMA” interview below!
