Jennifer Lawrence—acclaimed as this year's highest paid and most popular actress—is not one to shy away from controversial topics.

When recently asked about Republican presidential hopeful and business magnate Donald Trump's possible entry into the White House, the outspoken actress said that could spell doom for the country.

"If Donald Trump becomes president, that will be the end of the world," she said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.

Her "The Hunger Games" co-stars agreed with her thoughts. Liam Hemsworth, who plays Katniss Everdeen's best friend Gale Hawthorne, agreed wholeheartedly: "I'll back you up on that," he said.

Josh Hutcherson, who plays her love interest Peeta Mellark, cannot believe that Trump is seriously running for president. "It's a publicity stunt," he said. "It can't be real."

Lawrence thinks that Trump might just be running for the presidency in order to boost his TV ratings. "I genuinely believe that reality television has reached the ultimate place where now even things like this might just be for entertainment," she said. "It's either that or it's Hillary's brilliant idea."

"I was watching him on the campaign trail and one guy said, 'I love Donald Trump because he's saying everything I'm thinking and I just can't say it because of the PC factor.' And I'm thinking, 'You are absolutely right. That's who I want representing my country, somebody politically incorrect. That will just be perfect,'" the actress added.

During an interview with CNN, Trump said he's currently leading every poll, but should his numbers drop significantly, he will not hesitate to bow out of the race.

"Well, I'm not a masochist," Trump said. "Right now I'm leading every poll, and in most cases big. That's good. If that changed, if I was like some of these people at 1 percent and 2 percent, there's no reason to continue forward. If I fell behind badly, I would certainly get out."

The Suffolk University/USA Today poll showed Trump still leading the pack in the Republican presidential race with 23 percent of voters' support, while his closest competitors Dr. Ben Carson and Carly Fiorina are tied with 13 percent.
