Jennifer Lawrence Makes First Public Comments Regarding Nude Photo Leak

For the first time ever, your uproarious best friend you haven’t met yet Jennifer Lawrence has publicly addressed the nude celebrity photo leak. Speaking in a 3000 word cover story for Vanity Fair’s November issue, Lawrence, 24, more Oscars than you, discusses the reasonable reasons she took the photos in the first place (“It was long distance, and either your boyfriend is going to look at porn or he’s going to look at you”), celebrity culture, the definition of a sex crime and what can be done to prevent/punish similar violations in the future.   

“Just because I’m a public figure, just because I’m an actress, does not mean that I asked for this. It does not mean that it comes with the territory,” she says. “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.”

She then condemned the leak as a sex crime, saying “the law needs to be changed”.
“It is not a scandal. It is a sex crime. It is a sexual violation. It’s disgusting. The law needs to be changed, and we need to change. That’s why these Web sites are responsible,” she said. “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.”
The issue – and Lawrence’s full interview – is available today.
