“Hunger Games” actress Jennifer Lawrence is proud to be a Democrat and wants her followers to know.
Tuesday, Lawrence tweeted “I would like to clarify my voting record, which is the subject of many circulating headlines.
She continued “I grew up in a republican family and voted for John McCain in 2008, but through Obama’s presidency, and growing up to realize I was voting against my own rights, I am proud to say I am a Democrat.”

In a campaign video earlier this month talking Georgia politics, Lawrence responded to concerns about a Biden enthusiasm gap among young voters and talked about why she’s no longer Republican.
Lawrence also recently appeared on the “Absolutely Not” Podcast with Heather McMahan, where she said “My first time voting, I voted for John McCain. I was a little Republican.”
“When Donald Trump got elected, that just changed everything,” Lawrence explained “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 added “I don’t want to support a president who supports white supremacists.”
