Hours after Vogue magazine published an interview with “Hunger Games” star Jennifer Lawrence in which she admitted to having nightmares about Tucker Carlson, the Fox News host responded with some fun, pithy mockery.
“When you decide to work in television, you lose control of a lot of things. Foremost, the way other people perceive you. So can it really be your fault, are you really responsible, if major Hollywood starlets dream about you?” he asked during a late Tuesday segment of Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
He then retrieved a pair of black-rimmed glasses, placed them over his eyes, and deadpanned, “Maybe it’s the sexy glasses.”
Fox News’ Trace Gallagher responded to Carlson’s humor by drawing attention to some of the irony.
“It’s important to note that while Jennifer Lawrence sees you in her head at night — you know, the nightmares when she sleeps — she’s likely not watching you now, but her parents are probably watching you because they’re fans,” he said.
Indeed, they are.
In the interview with Vogue, Lawrence revealed that her parents are Trump-supporting conservatives who voted for the former president in 2016 — and that she’s struggled mightily to accept this apparent flaw of theirs.
“I just worked so hard in the last five years to forgive my dad and my family and try to understand: It’s different. The information they are getting is different. Their life is different,” she said.
“I’ve tried to get over it and I really can’t. I can’t. I’m sorry I’m just unleashing, but I can’t f–k with people who aren’t political anymore. You live in the United States of America. You have to be political. It’s too dire. Politics are killing people.”
According to Vogue, “Much of her disappointment was directed at certain relatives back in Louisville, Kentucky, where she’d grown up, including her father. The 2016 election had torn open a rift in her family. Repairing it was an ongoing process. Particularly since having a baby, she had been trying to heal. She even discussed with her therapist the recurring nightmares she has about Tucker Carlson.”

Why nightmares about Carlson, though? Gallagher speculated it was because of what the Fox News host had said about her in 2017.
“As for her ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’ mares, they likely stem from a 2017 segment where you joked that she had Trump Derangement Syndrome,” he said.
During a Sept. 2017 segment, Carlson laid into Lawrence after she suggested that Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma were then-President Donald Trump’s fault.
“We voted, and it was really startling. You know, you’re watching these hurricanes now, and it’s really — it’s hard, especially while promoting this movie, not to feel Mother Nature’s rage, or wrath,” she said during a TV interview at the time about the movie “Mother!” as well as “Donald Trump and climate change.”
After her remarks went viral, she issued a statement claiming she’d been taken out of context.
“My remarks were taken grossly out of context. Obviously I never claimed that President Trump was responsible for these tragic hurricanes. That is a silly and preposterous headline that is unfortunate, because it detracts from the millions of lives that are being impacted by these devastating storms and the recent earthquake. What is really important is focusing on the ways we can help. My heart is with everyone affected and the brave first responders who are working to keep us all safe,” she reportedly said.
Gallagher didn’t buy it.
“She said was taken grossly out of context. Really!? I mean, shortly after she said Trump would be the end of the world and that Trump was a jar of mayonnaise, she went on to say in a 2016 interview with a British television station that the election was ‘startling’ and ‘you’re watching these hurricanes now, and it’s really hard not to feel Mother Nature’s rage,'” he noted Tuesday on Fox News.
Carlson eventually closed the segment by saying he was flattered and again attributing the nightmares to his “sexy glasses.”
“We’re flattered. I think it’s the sexy glasses,” he said.
As for Lawrence, she continued her interview with Vogue by kvetching about Trump again.
“It breaks my heart [that Trump won in 2016] because America had the choice between a woman and a dangerous, dangerous jar of mayonnaise. And they were like, Well, we can’t have a woman. Let’s go with the jar of mayonnaise,” she said.
Lawrence is especially upset now that Roe v. Wade has been overturned because of the judges Trump appointed to the Supreme Court.
“I don’t want to disparage my family, but I know that a lot of people are in a similar position with their families. How could you raise a daughter from birth and believe that she doesn’t deserve equality? How?” she said.
She also bashed the Second Amendment:
“I’m raising a little boy who will go to school one day. Guns are the number-one cause of death for children in the US. We’re allowing our children to lay down their lives for our right to an amendment written over 200 years ago,” Jennifer Lawrence https://t.co/CZwKEvbxyP
