Jennifer Lawrence Uses Platform For Good

Jennifer Lawrence

Jennifer Lawrence believes she doesn’t “deserve” her platform if she doesn’t use it to speak out on social issues.

The 27-year-old actress has admitted it can be difficult to face the “criticism” which comes with fighting for social justice, but insists it’s worth it because she believes that’s why she has been given the platform to do so.

She said: “It’s not easy to speak out. It’s not easy to face criticism on a global scale. But the fact is I have been given a platform, and if I don’t use it, then I don’t deserve it.”

Jennifer praised the women who have had the strength to come forward and accuse Hollywood stars – including Harvey Weinstein, Brett Ratner, and Louis C.K. – of sexual misconduct, and urged others to continue being “outspoken”.
