After Jennifer Lawrence called Harvey Weinstein a “predator” last week, the “Red Sparrow” actress now added he’s “that horrible a– boil that does not go away.”

Lawrence appeared on “The Late Show” on Monday to promote her new film when host Stephen Colbert kept offering the 27-year-old actress rum before bringing up how Weinstein had cited Lawrence and Meryl Streep in a petition to dismiss a class-action lawsuit against him.

“He is just that horrible ass boil that does not go away. You pop the ass boil! He’s just the worst!” Lawrence said. “Just, when is going to end? Like, in the middle of the night I had to come out with a statement in London and I was like, ‘It’s still not over? His awfulness is still happening?'”

Colbert then responded that Weinstein “dragged” her “into his pile of s—,” to which Lawrence responded, “Everybody does — but I’m very lucky and happy!”

Last week, Lawrence released a statement reading, “Harvey Weinstein and his company are continuing to do what they have always done, which is to take things out of context and use them for their own benefit. This is what predators do, and it must stop.”

In a response to a class-action lawsuit filed over his accused misconduct, Weinstein invoked previous statements from Streep that he had been “respectful” to her when they worked together. Streep did not appreciate his associating that remark in relation to the rape, assault and harassment he stands accused of by over 80 women. The response also cited previous comments from Lawrence, who told Oprah the disgraced mogul had been “nothing but nice to her” since they had met.

Weinstein later apologized to both Lawrence and Streep. Weinstein has routinely denied any occasion of nonconsensual sex. He and his legal team are asking the suit be dismissed.
