Jennifer Lawrence Opens Up for First Time About Nude Photo Leak

Jennifer Lawrence Opens Up for First Time About Nude Photo Leak

Jennifer Lawrence shines in a pool of water on the cover of Vanity Fair magazine’s November 2014 issue.

In the magazine, the 24-year-old Oscar winner broke her silence for the first time on her nude photos:

On the leak: “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. 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 deciding if she should write an apology: “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.”

On how she feels now: “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.”

On her message to tabloids who published her pictures: “You have a choice. You don’t have to be a person who spreads negativity and lies for a living. You can do something good. You can be good. Let’s just make that choice and—it feels better.”

    This is becoming stupid. Everyone is freaking out because of J.Law when in reality she knew this could happen and still took tons of pictures. I’m pretty sure the FBI would do nothing if these where normal girls, and now just because they are famous it becomes a national issue.

    Please, celebrities, if you don’t want nude photos out there, JUST DON’T TAKE THEM!

    Read the rest of the article before you comment @missmarin.

    She specifically talks about it being HER body and therefore HER choice whether the public to see her naked or not. Just because she took photos in the privacy of her own home (and her phone automatically backed those photos up on the cloud) doesn’t mean that other people have a right to distribute them online if they come across them.

    Even if she decides to pose naked in the magazine, that is her choice. That doesn’t mean that every other naked photo that she has ever taken or will take, should also be distributed for everyone to see. It’s about choice and privacy!

    Victim blaming celebrities who have their private nude photos distributed because they “were stupid enough to take them, so people should be able to see them” is the same as saying to anyone who has had ever had sex that they deserve to be raped because they’re no longer virgins. Grow up.
