Jennifer Lawrence: Nude Photo Leak Not a Scandal, It's a Sex Crime

By    |   Tuesday, 07 Oct 2014 08:32 PM

Actress Jennifer Lawrence has finally responded to the nude photo scandal of the summer, saying the hackers responsible are guilty of committing a sex crime and that anybody who looked at the nude photos committed a sexual offense.

Lawrence spoke out for the first time about the nude photos in an interview with Vanity Fair, and said she was afraid the hacking might negatively affect her career.

The actress described experiencing a wide range of emotions after learning photos she had sent to her long-distance boyfriend had ended up online. Lawrence said she was sad and angry and felt violated.

"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 told Vanity Fair she felt the need to apologize to fans in a written statement, but she didn’t know what to say she was 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," she said.

The actress said the hacking had been mischaracterized as a scandal, when in fact it was a sex crime. Calling it “disgusting,” Lawrence said web sites that post stolen images should be criminally charged for sexual exploitation.

The "Hunger Games" star and Oscar-winner said the hardest part was calling her father to tell him about the photos.

Meanwhile, the FBI continues to investigate two rounds of celebrity photo hackings that included nude images of dozens of A-list stars including Lawrence and Kate Upton, Kirsten Dunst, Rihanna, Amber Heard, and Kim Kardashian.
