In a recent in-depth interview with Vogue, Jennifer Lawrence revealed Kim Davis, the embattled Kentucky county clerk who caused a media firestorm this summer after refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, makes her feel "embarrassed" to be from the Bluegrass State.

Lawrence, who was born and raised in Louisville, has such strong distain for the Rowan County clerk that she told the Vogue reporter not to "even say her [Davis's] name in this house." Instead, Lawrence, 25, refers to Davis as the "lady who makes me embarrassed to be from Kentucky," the Hollywood Reporter points out.

"All those people holding their crucifixes, which may as well be pitchforks, thinking they're fighting the good fight," she said. "I grew up in Kentucky. I know how they are."

"The Hunger Games" star goes on to talk about her political views and said she was "raised a Republican" but she "can't imagine supporting a party that doesn't support women's basic rights."

"If Donald Trump is president of the United States, it will be the end of the world. And he's also the best thing to happen to the Democrats ever," she added.

The interview also covers Lawrence's upcoming film "Joy," which she says started as a biopic on the Miracle Mop inventor Joy Manago but then got reworked as a film by David O. Russlle's script.
