Tucker Carlson joked Tuesday night about Jennifer Lawrence’s revelation of her “nightmares” about him, laughing that if he appears in Hollywood starlet dreams, it’s not his fault.
Lawrence, 32, told Vogue magazine she was sad and angry that some of her relatives were supporting Donald Trump. Born into a Republican family in Kentucky, she said she struggled to come to terms with her views — and had nightmares about Carlson.
The Fox News anchor couldn’t resist referencing her claims on Tuesday.
“When you decide to work in television, you lose control of a lot of things,” Carlson told viewers, frowning.
“Primarily the way other people perceive you.
“So it can really be your fault, are you really responsible if big Hollywood stars dream about you?”
Then he pulled out a pair of black glasses.
“Maybe it’s the sexy glasses,” he said tonelessly.

Carlson’s colleague Trace Gallagher remarked, “Jennifer Lawrence sees you in her head at night, the nightmares when she sleeps. She probably isn’t watching you now, but her parents are probably watching you because they’re fans.’
He pointed out that in 2017, Lawrence — a fervent Democratic activist — was accused by Carlson of suffering “Trump derangement syndrome” after noting that the terrible hurricane season in Trump’s election may have “brought the wrath of Mother Nature” had been.
Carlson concluded, “So she’s having nightmares about us, nightmares.”
He added: “We’re flattered. It’s not my fault if they dream about you.”

Lawrence, who grew up in an upper-middle-class suburb of Kentucky, says she used to be culturally conservative but reformed her political thinking after seeing Tina Fey’s portrayal of Liz Lemon in the NBC comedy 30 Rock.
In a new interview with Vogue, Lawrence says she keeps having nightmares about Tucker Carlson
Lawrence said in her Vogue interview that her father’s support for Trump drove a wedge between them.
“I’ve just worked so hard over the last five years to forgive my father and my family and try to understand: It’s different. The information they receive varies. Your life is different,” she said.
She added: “I’ve been trying to get over it and I really can’t. I can not.’
Lawrence said she couldn’t understand people who were disinterested in politics.
“I can’t f… with people who aren’t political anymore,” she said, citing gun control and access to abortion as key issues.
“You live in the United States of America. You have to be political.
“It’s too bad. Politics kills people.”
Lawrence, who ran for Hillary Clinton, said she was devastated by the 2016 election.
“It breaks my heart because America had a choice between a woman and a dangerous, dangerous jar of mayonnaise.
“And they said, ‘Well, we can’t have a wife. Let’s go with the mayonnaise jar.”

“How can you raise a daughter from birth and think she doesn’t deserve equality? As?’ the actress asks herself, commenting on the feud with her family that she cannot overcome
Lawrence told Vogue that a miscarriage she suffered in Toronto a few years ago convinced her of the importance of access to abortion for young women.
She says she was “100%” planning to have an abortion prior to the miscarriage, but the fall of Roe v. Wade catapulted the topic to new meaning for her personally and in relation to her relationship with her family.
“I don’t mean to belittle my family, but I know a lot of people are in a similar situation with their families,” she noted.
“How can you raise a daughter from birth and think she doesn’t deserve equality? As?’
She says she regularly raises the issue with her family, but accepts that she doesn’t convince them.
“I bring up the subject in the sense that I unleash text messages. Just: Boom. Boom. Boom. Boom. Boom. You don’t answer,’ she said.
“And then I feel bad and send a picture of the baby.”
