"It's entertaining. Don't put any political weight on it", she said. "So I go to this high school to talk to kids about, you know, the government and super PACs and blah blah blah".

Lawrence was also on the show to promote her new movie, "Red Sparrow", a psychological spy drama where she plays a Russian ballerina turned secret spy, and she had a message for her haters.

"I think all of us would love to do another one..." She is a huge support system for me and I wouldn't be here if it weren't for her. "And we go up to the roof and she's talking about everything, and I just went, 'Amy, every minute that I'm here Larry could be leaving'".

"Turns out I really like rum".

"There was a lot of stuff that made me nervous before I said yes to this movie", she said at our interview at the London Hotel in West Hollywood. The one where Charlize Theron plays a British spy on a mission to East Berlin just before the collapse of the Wall, and kicks so much ass she needs a third leg? "They were so smart, and I was like, 'Well, I can't go to colleges anymore, '" Lawrence joked.

If you need a grisly film about a Russian femme fatale, I guess this could do it-but if you're looking for something to scratch your Black Widow itch, you're going to be very disappointed.

While Jennifer Lawrence worked with disgraced movie producer Harvey Weinstein on Silver Lining's Playbook, which earned her an Oscar, she was fortunately never a victim of his sexual misconduct. Over- reacting about everything someone says or does, creating controversy over silly innocuous things such as what I choose to wear or not wear, is not moving us forward.

Directors should aim to create "the safest environments possible... so that people feel respected and safe and comfortable", he said. "Dieting is just not in the cards for me".

After Lawrence blurted out the above I asked him straight out whether he plans on making the follow-up. I might not ever get up there again. and I didn't thank [director] David O. Russell, who, I wouldn't have a career if it weren't for David O. Russell. "Walking away from it, I actually felt and feel empowered by it".
