Jennifer Lawrence Says The ’30 Rock’ Rule Has Changed Her Mind About Being A Republican

Jennifer Lawrence revealed the one line from “30 Rock” that made her a Democrat.

The Oscar-winning actress, 32, admitted she always thought she was a Republican until she came across an episode of the hit sitcom in her teens.

In 2020, Lawrence revealed she was a Republican before President Donald Trump entered the White House.

The Hunger Games star revealed that she voted for Republican candidate John McCain in the 2008 presidential election when he ran against Barack Obama.

Speaking to Vogue for their October issue, Lawrence said she watched 30 Rock as a 16-year-old, revealing Tina Fey’s character, Liz Lemon, which has changed her perception of a Republican.

The life-changing Liz Lemon line for Lawrence was, “Just because I think gay guys should be allowed to adopt kids and we should all have hybrid cars doesn’t mean I don’t love America.”

Lawrence revealed that, as a Republican, she asked the question, “Why should my taxes pay for your haughty lifestyle?”

“Nobody likes to see half of their salary disappear, but it made sense to me. Yeah, for the greater good, I think it makes sense,” she said of her current views.

In 2020, Lawrence, who grew up in Kentucky, said she saw “the tax benefits of some of the Republican policies” but eventually realized the party’s social policies were not in line with her views, so “she changed her mind.” my politics based on the things I have learned.”

But what really “changed everything” for the “Silver Linings Playbook” actress was the election of Trump.

“This is an accused president who has broken many laws and refused to condemn white supremacy, and it feels like a line has been drawn in the sand,” she said. “I don’t think it’s good … it just changes things for me.”
