Jennifer Lawrence shows it all off in a new cover story for Mode magazine.
The Oscar-winning actress revealed that she had two miscarriages before giving birth to her first child in February – a baby boy. She welcomed the bundle of joy with her husband of three years, the Cooke Maroney art gallery.
Lawrence explained how the Supreme Court ruling against Roe V. Wade hit him hard.
“I remember thinking about it a million times when I was pregnant. Thinking about the things that happened to my body. And I had a great pregnancy. I had a very lucky pregnancy,” she told the magazine. “But every second of my life is different. And sometimes it occurs to me: ‘What if I have to do this?’”
The actress said she was pregnant in her early 20s and intended to have an abortion. However, she miscarried “alone in Montreal,” before she could do so.
Years later, she got pregnant while filming “Don’t Look Up” and she miscarried again. Lawrence said that for the second time, he was married and desperately wanted to have a baby. She then had to undergo a medical procedure to remove scar tissue from her uterus.
Lawrence’s political views on the topic put him at odds with his family; her home state, Kentucky, banned abortions following the ruling. He explained how he discussed heavy political topics with his Southern family.
“I let go of the text message. Just: Bomb. Explosion. Explosion. Explosion. Explosion. They didn’t respond,” he explained. “Then I’ll feel bad and send a photo of the baby.”
Lawrence also considers the ongoing gun control debate.
“I am raising a boy who will go to school one day,” Lawrence said. “Guns are the number one cause of death for children in the United States. And people still vote for politicians who receive money from the NRA. It blows my mind.”
He went on to reveal more details.
“I mean, if Sandy Hook doesn’t change anything… We as a nation just say, ‘Okay! We allow our children to lay down their lives for our rights to the Second Amendment written over 200 years ago.”
Another topic that was close to Lawrence’s heart was equal pay. In 2014, the computer hack of Sony Pictures revealed that Lawrence was paid significantly less for “American Hustle” than his co-stars.
Recently, Vanity Exhibition reports that he earned $5 million less than Leonard DiCaprio for “Don’t Look Up.”
“It doesn’t matter how much I do,” he said. “I still won’t get paid as much as that guy, because of my pussy?”
But now Lawrence found himself back at work.
He starred in “Causeway”, which is similar to his film “Winter’s Bone.” The film began shooting in 2019, but later production was halted due to the pandemic. The crew resumed filming in 2021.
Later this month, Lawrence heads to the Toronto International Film Festival for the drama’s world premiere, which opens on November 4 from Apple.
