Jennifer Lawrence spoke with Vanity Fair about the recent celebrity hacking that causes dozens of female celebrity nude photos to be splashed across the internet.
“Just because I’m a public figure, just because I’m an actress, does not mean that I asked for this,” Lawrence told the magazine. “It does not mean that it comes with the territory. It’s my body, and it should be my choice, and the fact that it is not my choice is absolutely disgusting. I can’t believe that we even live in that kind of world. ”
Lawrence called the hacking “not a scandal” but a “sex crime” and admitted how difficult it was to phone her father with the news. “When I have to make that phone call to my dad and tell him what’s happened … I don’t care how much money I get for The Hunger Games,” she said. “I promise you, anybody given the choice of that kind of money or having to make a phone call to tell your dad that something like that has happened, it’s not worth it.”
Lawrence added that, fortunately, her father was in a good mood at the time because “he was playing golf.”
Lawrence wasn’t afraid to call out those people who looked at the photos, including people she knows. “Anybody who looked at those pictures, you’re perpetuating a sexual offense,” she said. “You should cower with shame. Even people who I know and love say, ‘Oh, yeah, I looked at the pictures.’ I don’t want to get mad, but at the same time I’m thinking, I didn’t tell you that you could look at my naked body.”
Jennifer Lawrence’s full article with Vanity Fair should be an interesting one, because in addition to addressing the hack, the Oscar-winning actress also discusses relationships and her love of reality TV!
