Jennifer Lawrence seems to believe Mother Nature is angry with us, especially with the current political climate in the U.S.

In a recent interview with Channel 4 News's Jackie Long, the Hunger Games star voiced her opinion on the state of the country.

"It's scary," Lawrence said. "This new language that's forming. I don't even recognize it. It's also scary to know that climate change is due to human activity and we continue to ignore it, and the only voice that we really have is through voting."

"And we voted, and it was really startling," she continued. "You're watching these hurricanes now and it's hard, especially while promoting this movie, not to feel Mother Nature's rage or wrath."

Lawrence is currently making the rounds to promote her new horror thriller, mother!, but she seemed to be focused on more pressing issues during the Channel 4 interview, especially the state of the country under a Donald Trump presidency.

"'s really polarizing and upsetting," the Oscar winner said of the current division among Americans. "I've heard things and seen things on TV in my own country that devastate me and make me sick. It's just really confusing."

When Long asked if she found President Donald Trump confusing, she replied, "I don't find him confusing. I think I know exactly what he is."

While she was not directly blaming the effects of Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma on the U.S. electing Trump as president, it was apparent that she was insinuating at least a loose connection, especially due to Trump's disbelief in climate change.

In recent times, Lawrence has become politically outspoken and even campaigned for Hillary Clinton before the election. After Trump's win, the actress also wrote an emotional essay expressing her feelings on the election results and urging like-minded people to turn their anger into constructive action.

"Do not let this defeat you — let this enrage you!" she wrote. "Let it motivate you! Let this be the fire you didn't have before. If you are an immigrant, if you are a person of color, if you are LGBTQ+, if you are a woman — don't be afraid, be loud!"
