Jennifer Lawrence has been a vocal opponent against Donald Trump, but she’s not shying away from taking shots at Hillary Clinton, too.

In her cover story for the upcoming issue of Vanity Fair, Lawrence blasted the Democrats for “chastising” Trump supporters and ruining their chances of swinging any votes.

“The Democrats made a huge mistake by chastising the Trump supporters, and that was disgusting to me,” Lawrence said.

“Of course they’re not going to vote for Hillary Clinton; they’re going to vote for Donald Trump. You laughed at them when their plight is very real,” Lawrence said reference to Hillary Clinton calling the now-president’s base “deplorable.”

She continued by saying that Trump is “a big powerful man in a nice suit, pointing at you and going, ‘I’m going to make you rich.’ It’s so appealing.”

Despite openly supporting Clinton in the 2016 presidential election and continuing to discuss politics since Trump took office, Lawrence said, “I’ve always thought that it was a good idea to stay out of politics,” for business reasons.

“Twenty-five percent of America identifies as liberal and I need more than 25 percent of America to go see my movies. It’s not wise, career-speaking, to talk about politics,” Lawrence admitted. “When Donald Trump got sworn into office, that f**king changed.”
