Back in August, nude photos of Jennifer Lawrence leaked online signaling the start of a Hollywood hacking scandal that would eventually affect hundreds or actresses, models, and singers.

Lawrence sued to have the pics removed from Google, but she has not spoken publicly about the incident until today …

While many celebs reacted instantly via social media, Lawrence – perhaps the most high-profile victim of the scandal – offered her thoughts to Vanity Fair in a remarkably candid interview that the reputable current affairs mag posted online today.

“I was just so afraid,” Lawrence said. “I didn’t know how this would affect my career. Just because I’m a public figure, just because I’m an actress, does not mean that I asked for this.”

“It’s my body and it should be my choice, and the fact that it is not my choice is absolutely disgusting.”

Lawrence goes on to describe the circumstances under which the photos were taken:


“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 offered some choice words to anyone who played a role in the scandal:

“I can’t imagine being that thoughtless and careless and so empty inside. Anybody who looked at those pictures, you’re perpetuating a sexual offense.”

“You should cower with shame.”

Lawrence also says she’s leading a fight to institute stiffer penalties for digital theft. We imagine the hackers responsible for The Fappening are running scared at the moment.
