jennifer lawrence speaks out about her nude photo hack
“So unbelievably violating that you can’t even put it into words.”
“I feel like I got gangbanged by the fucking planet,” Jennifer Lawrence has said of her nude photo leak in 2014. “Like, there's not one person in the world that is not capable of seeing these intimate photos of me."
In an interview for the Hollywood Reporter’s Awards Chatter, the actress describes the emotional ordeal of the hack, and her reaction in real time: "It was happening minute-to-minute, almost like a ransom situation, where they were releasing new [photos] every hour. It was so unbelievably violating.”
And while she would have had decent grounds on which to sue -- Ryan Collins, the hacker, is serving 18 months in jail after pleading guilty -- her priority was taking care of herself. “I wasn't interested in suing everybody,” she says, “I was just interested in healing."
