Jennifer Lawrence is fast becoming the welcome antidote to celebrity culture by gleefully discussing "disgusting" secret habits, making jokes that would make the likes of Amy Schumer blush, demonstrating her ability to eat copious amounts of food in one go and sharing her beliefs about what could have actually inspired Donald Trump to stand for President.
Lawrence has participated in a number of interviews to promote the final Hunger Games installment, Mockingjay: Part 2. In a memorable conversation with MTV, she proudly shoved ten marshmellows into her mouth, revealed her most disgusting secret was not washing her hands after going to the toilet, and admitted urinating in sinks.
"I’ve peed in some sinks," she said. "When two girls go into a bathroom, someone’s gotta take a sink! I actually like taking the sink."
The actress is also so concerned by the thought of Trump's presidential bid that she is now turning to the conspiracy theory his Republican nomination was orchestrated to ensure Hillary Clinton is elected as President.
Trump’s campaign has been marked by his controversial, provocative and often disparaging statements targeting ethnic minorities, women, and anyone who opposes him (“moron”, “loser”, “idiot” etc). His offensive culminated on Wednesday with his vow to deport all Syrian refugees back to a country ripped apart by conflict because “they might be Isis” on Wednesday. Despite provoking a near constant stream of outrage, the billionaire continues to emerge as the frontrunner in the race.
Clearly perturbed by the prospect of this man becoming America’s elected leader, Lawrence insisted his campaign could not be genuine.
“If Donald Trump becomes president, that will be the end of the world," she told Entertainment Weekly.
“I genuinely believe that reality television has reached the ultimate place where now even things like this might just be for entertainment."
Her Hunger Games co-star Josh Hutcherson was even more forthright. “It’s a publicity stunt,” he insisted. “It can’t be real.”
Donald Trump's most controversial quotes
Donald Trump's most controversial quotes
1/14 On Isis:
"Some of the candidates, they went in and didn’t know the air conditioner didn’t work and sweated like dogs, and they didn’t know the room was too big because they didn’t have anybody there. How are they going to beat ISIS?"
2/14 On immigration:
"I will build a great wall — and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me —and I’ll build them very inexpensively. I will build a great, great wall on our southern border, and I will make Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words."
3/14 On Free Trade:
"Free trade is terrible. Free trade can be wonderful if you have smart people. But we have stupid people."

4/14 On Mexicans:
"When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re sending people that have lots of problems. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists."
5/14 On China:
"I just sold an apartment for $15 million to somebody from China. Am I supposed to dislike them?... I love China. The biggest bank in the world is from China. You know where their United States headquarters is located? In this building, in Trump Tower."
6/14 On work:
"If you're interested in 'balancing' work and pleasure, stop trying to balance them. Instead make your work more pleasurable."
7/14 On success:
"What separates the winners from the losers is how a person reacts to each new twist of fate."
8/14 On life:
"Everything in life is luck."
9/14 On ambition:
"You have to think anyway, so why not think big?"
10/14 On his opponents:
"Bush is totally in favour of Common Core. I don't see how he can possibly get the nomination. He's weak on immigration. He's in favour of Common Core. How the hell can you vote for this guy? You just can't do it."
11/14 On Obamacare:
"You have to be hit by a tractor, literally, a tractor, to use it, because the deductibles are so high. It's virtually useless. And remember the $5 billion web site?... I have so many web sites, I have them all over the place. I hire people, they do a web site. It costs me $3."
12/14 On Barack Obama:
"Obama is going to be out playing golf. He might be on one of my courses. I would invite him. I have the best courses in the world. I have one right next to the White House."
13/14 On himself:
"Love him or hate him, Trump is a man who is certain about what he wants and sets out to get it, no holds barred. Women find his power almost as much of a turn-on as his money."
14/14 On America:
"The American Dream is dead. But if I get elected president I will bring it back bigger and better and stronger than ever before and we will make America great again."
Lawrence went on: “It’s either that or it’s Hillary’s brilliant idea...I was watching him on the campaign trail and one guy said, ‘I love Donald Trump because he’s saying everything I’m thinking and I just can’t say it because of the PC factor.’ And I’m thinking, ‘You are absolutely right. That’s who I want representing my country, somebody politically incorrect. That will just be perfect.’
Breaking Bad actor Bryan Cranston was one of those people who believes Trump’s campaign is refreshing, praising his “candour” and his, “you’re an idiot, I’m a winner, you’re a loser” attitude.
“There's something great about his 'I don't give a s**t' attitude that really kind of keeps others honest,” he said in August.
