Jennifer Lawrence Speaks, Calls Photo Hacking a 'Sex Crime'

Jennifer Lawrence Speaks, Calls Photo Hacking a 'Sex Crime'

Jennifer Lawrence responded to the celebrity photo scandal in this month’s issue of Vanity Fair, where she explained why she’s not sorry for making a sex tape with her boyfriend.

The actress claimed she had plans to address the public immediately after the cyber attack, but decided against it because she wasn’t emotionally stable. As far as the homemade tape, it was apparently an effort to keep her long-term boyfriend from watching pornography.

“Every single thing that I tried to write made me cry or get angry,” she explained. “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.”

She also called for an amendment in publishing laws that surround these types of offenses. Lawrence referred to the incident as a “sex crime” rather than a scandal.

“It is a sexual violation. It’s disgusting. The law needs to change, and we need to change… The fact that somebody can be sexually exploited and violated, and the first thing 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 so thoughtless and careless and so empty inside,” she continued.

Furthermore, anyone who has viewed or shared the explicit images, especially her loved ones, should feel ashamed for perpetuating the crime.

“You should cower with shame. Even people who I know and love say, ‘Oh yeah, I looked at your 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,” she said.

Lawrence declared no amount of money sufficient enough when faced with reality of telling her father that her naked images and video had been leaked to the public, not even the salary for a lead role in 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,” she said.

The Hunger Games star admitted to fearing the ramifications of the late-August scandal and hoped that it wouldn’t affect her career. She is reportedly doing much better now.

“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.” said Lawrence. 

A bit of advice from Lawrence to the tabloid community:

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.
