Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence speaking to Vanity Fair‘s Sam Kashner on the nude-photo hacking incident: “[What happened was] a sex crime…a sexual violation. It’s disgusting. The law needs to be changed, and we need to change. That’s why these websites 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.”
Also: “I was just so afraid. I didn’t know how this would affect my career.” Trust me — nobody in online consumerland thought for a half second that Lawrence was in any way compromised or lessened because she took some nude shots of herself and sent them to her boyfriend. At all. Nobody gave a shit.
Also: “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. [After the photos broke] 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.”
