Jennifer Lawrence finally opens up about her major privacy breach, telling Vanity Fair that hackers leaking nude photos isn’t a scandal, but a “sex crime.” In the November issue, the 24-year-old says: “Just because I’m a public figure, just because I’m an actress, does not mean that I asked for this.” And that’s just the beginning.
Everyone was surprised that Oscar winner, notorious for being an open book, didn’t sound off sooner. Now, it’s all coming out. “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,” she says, “I can’t believe that we even live in that kind of world.”
She admits that she thought about writing a public apology after the photos were leaked, but it just didn’t seem right. “Every single thing that I tried to write made me cry or get angry,” she explains. “I started to write an apology, but I don’t have anything to say I’m sorry for. I was in a loving, healthy, great relationship for four years. It was long distance, and either your boyfriend is going to look at porn or he’s going to look at you.”
Lawrence also said she was uncertain and scared of whether the nude photos would impact her career. Now, she’s standing up for change: “The law needs to be changed, and we need to change… I can’t imagine being that thoughtless and careless and so empty inside.”
