Jennifer Lawrence has revealed that three years after a hacker stole and uploaded a series of her private nude photos, she’s constantly fearful that another morally-bereft bastard will try the same thing again.
In a feature piece for Vogue’s September issue, the massively talented actress admitted that although the public recognised the hack as a “sex crime”, she still struggles with the fear someone will attempt the same thing again.
Lawrence admits “that feeling, I haven’t been able to get rid of it.”
Having your privacy violated constantly isn’t a problem if you’re perfect. But if you’re human, it’s terrifying.
When my publicist calls me, I’m like, ‘Oh, my God, what is it?’ Even when it’s nothing. I’m always waiting to get blindsided again.
The 26-year-old also says things weren’t helped when a totally harmless video of her pole-dancing at a supposedly private birthday party function made its way online earlier this year. At the time, she issued a Facebook post explaining how much of a nothing-burger the clip was; still, she says the leak presented some troubling parallels to the hack.
“I’m on the phone with my lawyers, and everybody’s like, ‘Is there anything we need to know before it comes out?’”, Lawrence recalls. “And I’m like, ‘No, it’s all there.’ ”
Still, she says “It’s scary when you feel the whole world judges you”.
For what it’s worth, Ryan Collins, the 36-year-old man responsible for the hack, was sentenced last year to 18 months in federal prison.
