Oh good, Jennifer Lawrence, Oscar-winning actress, has decided to go off her job in Hollywood in order to go on the job for America.
She’s quitting acting — for a time — to help save us from ourselves. And by her estimates, it should only take her a year or so.
“I’m going to take the next year off,” Lawrence said in an interview with Entertainment Tonight to promote “Red Sparrow,” her latest film. “I’m going to be working with this organization I’m part of: Represent.Us. It’s just trying to get young people engaged politically on a local level.”
Sounds like a Barack Obama campaign.
Anyhow, in her words, Lawrence said her activism will help “fix our democracy.” (And here you thought it was the younger people entering the activism field that was destroying our democracy — firstly, by calling it a democracy, rather than a democratic-republic, as it should be rightly referenced. Silly you.)
But oh skeptics, be still. Lawrence assures she’s not going partisan, but simply watchdoggy.
“It’s just [about] anti-corruption and stuff [and] trying to pass state-by-state laws that can help prevent corruption, fix our democracy,” she said, Fox News reported.
And when America’s all good to go — all non-corrupty and like, democratic, and stuff?
“And then,” Lawrence said, “I don’t know what I’m doing next.”
Could be yoga; could be digging for DACA relief. We don’t know. But Lawrence did, after all, just a year ago spend considerable time signing a letter to press Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi to protect these youthful illegals from deportation. So who knows, maybe a followup letter’s in order?
No matter. All that America needs to know is that Jennifer’s on the job. And in a year’s time, or less, the country should be pretty much healed, back on the straight and narrow, completely or at least nearly free of corruption and crime.
After all, Donald Trump won and, as she said in 2015, that means the “end of the world” is coming soon. It’s high time for Hollywood to come to the rescue.
