Jennifer Lawrence Calls Photo Hacking a “Sex Crime”

Actress Jennifer Lawrence was one of the female celebrities unfortunately caught up in the iCloud hack which caused nude photos of her to be stolen and released on the internet.

In a interview with Vanity Fair Magazine, she admitted being scared of what it would do to her career.

The pictures were released post the original interview/shoot with Vanity, so they contacted her again to get her reaction to the nude scandal.  A reaction is exactly what was received.  She didn’t hold back any feeling of disgust or anger about the incident.

JENNIFER LAWRENCE RELEASES SOME ANGER ABOUT THE PHOTOS LEAKING

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

JENNIFER SPEAKS ON LEGAL RAMIFICATIONS

“It is not a scandal. It is a sex crime,” she tells Kashner. “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.”

JENNIFER TELLS HER FATHER ABOUT THE PICTURES LEAKING

“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 says. “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.” She allows herself to joke a little about that terrible moment: “Fortunately, he was playing golf, so he was in a good mood.”
