Jennifer Lawrence told The Hollywood Reporter in interview published Wednesday she has never met Donald Trump, but if she ever gets the opportunity, the Oscar-winner is well-prepared.

“Oh, my God, I’ve been waiting for this moment," the 27-year-old told Oprah Winfrey in the interview session. “I’ll give you a hint – it’s not nice.”

Lawrence added, “I’ve got a pretty good speech. And it ends with a martini to the face."

“I want to travel around to the areas I’m from so that people realize corruption is a completely nonpartisan issue,” she said in her interview published in The Hollywood Reporter. “I would [also] love to help pass a bundle of laws [against government corruption]. We’d be able to pass state-by-state legislation to help [stop] corruption in our government.”

Lawrence is a board member for the nonprofit organization Represent.Us, which aims to pass anti-corruption laws “that stop political bribery, end secret money, and fix our broken elections.” She said fans shouldn’t be surprised by her willingness to make a difference in Washington D.C.

“My political passion has almost turned into an obsession,” she said. “I mean, I don’t think you ever do feel settled, [but] as soon as you feel settled with your home and your personal life, you’re looking at the world and going, ‘How in the hell do I fix this? What do we do?’”
