When she’s not busy leading the District 13 rebels in an uprising against the Capitol, Jennifer Lawrence doesn't tend to talk about politics too much.

But in a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, the “Hunger Games” decided to share her thoughts on Donald Trump. As it turns out, she’s as little a fan of America’s blusterer in chief as she is of  Panem’s machiavellian President Coriolanus Snow.

“If Donald Trump becomes president, that will be the end of the world,” Lawrence pronounced, unequivocally.

Her “Hunger Games” costars chimed in with similar perspectives.

“I’ll back you up on that,” added Liam Hemswroth.

"It’s a publicity stunt,” offered Josh Hutcherson. “It can’t be real.”

J-Law also wonders if Trump’s campaign might all be one very elaborate viral stunt.“I genuinely believe that reality television has reached the ultimate place where now even things like this might just be for entertainment,” she says. “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,’” she continued. "And I’m thinking, ‘You are absolutely right. That’s who I want representing my country, somebody politically incorrect. That will just be perfect.’”
