fter being one of the many celebrities to have their personal photos hacked and leaked online, actress Jennifer Lawrence opened up about her nude photos being passed around the web in the new issue of Vanity Fair.

The 24-year-old Hunger Games star graces the cover of the newest issue of the magazine, where she opened up about her anger over the photo leaks.

“Just because I’m a public figure, just because I’m an actress, does not mean that I asked for this,” Jennifer said. “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. ”

The actress admitted she wanted to write a public statement when the photos first leaked, however: “every single thing that I tried to write made me cry or get angry. 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.”

Jennifer continued, “It is not a scandal. It is a sex crime. It is a sexual violation. It’s disgusting. The law needs to be changed, and we need to change. That’s why these Web sites are responsible. Just the fact that somebody can be sexually exploited and violated, and the first thought that crosses somebody’s mind is to make a profit from it. It’s so beyond me. I just can’t imagine being that detached from humanity. I can’t imagine being that thoughtless and careless and so empty inside.”


The star also expressed frustration over people, including ones she knows, who have looked at her photos online.

“Anybody who looked at those pictures, you’re perpetuating a sexual offense. 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.”

“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.”

“Fortunately, he was playing golf, so he was in a good mood.” Jennifer joked.

As for how she’s doing now, Jennifer said:

“Time does heal, you know. I’m not crying about it anymore. I can’t be angry anymore. I can’t have my happiness rest on these people being caught, because they might not be. I need to just find my own peace.”

    One wonders in a profession where one’s currency is a an amalgamation of their image who actually and necessarily owns the right to such intangibles? Granted the hackers should be fully persecuted to the fullest extent of the law, but why should those forums, websites and even readers be punished for daring to comment, observe and look at images as long as they propagate a discussion of cultural dialectics? Even if those dialectics are ones that unfortunately also involve a quotient of men who are intent on misogynistic tendencies and more than happy to violate one’s presumption of privacy…Can an idea/image really be a sex crime too? Even a sexist idea?
