Jennifer Lawrence Calls The Hacking Of Her Naked Pictures A “Sex Crime”

October 7, 2014 / Posted by:

Seen above giving me Romancing the Stone vibes for some reason, Jennifer Lawrence had a lot to say about the dozens of pictures of her naked body that leaked all over the Internet over the course of a few weeks. Vanity Fair’s Sam Kashner interviewed JLaw for Vanity Fair before The Fappening happened, but after her hacked pictures took over 4Chan, Reddit and the rest of the Internet, he called her up and she went in.

Jennifer says that when she first found out about it, she was afraid and didn’t know how it would affect her career. She started to write an “I’m sowwy” letter but quickly realized that she’s not the one who should be apologizing since she’s not the one who did anything wrong. She also added that stealing and sharing pictures of her naked body is a sex crime and every single person who looked at the pictures should be lying in a puddle of lukewarm SHAME on the floor.

On how getting her naked pictures stolen doesn’t come with the territory of being a famous person: “Just because I’m a public figure, just because I’m an actress, does not mean that I asked for this. 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. ”

On why she took pictures of her naked body: “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.”

On how it shouldn’t be called a “SCANDAL!”: “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.”

On how even people in her life told her they saw her naked body on the Internet (Woody Harrelson, why would you tell her that?!): “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.”

On telling her dad: “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, 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.”

On how she’s moved on from it: “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.”

Because I’m a professional nitpicker and nitpick at everything, I just have to correct Jennifer Lawrence on that “either your boyfriend is going to look at porn or he’s going to look at you” comment. That may be true for her (but probably not since we ALL look at porn), but it’s not true for everyone. If I sent my boyfriend pictures of my nakedness, he would immediately go look at porn to forget the sight of my naked body under bright lights.

On a different note, JLaw also said this when talking about what she wants in a relationship:

“I would so much rather be bored than excited and have passion.”

That right there explains why she’s humping on the soggy piece of Melba toast known as Chris Martin.

And because every Jennifer Lawrence post should end with a picture of her with a bird, here she is with a bird:
