Hollywood star Jennifer Lawrence has been using her platform to raise political and social awareness, especially after she saw Donald Trump assume the Oval Office in 2016.

And with the presidential polls just around the corner, the Hunger Games actor is leaving no stone unturned to make sure the controversial figure does not head back to the White House.

In spite of her growing up in a Republican household, Lawrence witnessed her political views take a 360 degree turn following Trump’s election.

"My first time voting, I voted for John McCain. I was a little Republican,” revealed the Academy Award winner in an interview on the Absolutely Not podcast.

She went on say that even though she could identify "the fiscal benefits of the Republican policies,” she also “could also see the social issues weren't in line with my views."

"When Donald Trump got elected, that just changed everything. This is an impeached president whose broken many laws and has refused to condemn white supremacy, and it feels like there has been a line drawn in the sand,” she said.

"I don't want to support a president who supports white supremacists,” she added.
