Jennifer Lawrence: Trauma of having nude photos leaked will 'exist forever'
Jennifer Lawrence has spoken out on the ‘trauma’ of having her nude photos leaked online.
In 2014, iCloud hackers published nude photos of Jennifer online, with the star now saying: ‘Anybody can go look at my naked body without my consent, any time of the day.’
The 31-year-old added to Vanity Fair: ‘Somebody in France just published them. My trauma will exist forever.’
Elsewhere in the interview, Jennifer spoke out about former producer and convicted rapist Harvey Weinstein.
She said she had managed to largely avoid him, but has certainly not gone without men being inappropriate during her career.
‘Harvey’s victims were women that believed that he was going to help them,’ she said. ‘Fortunately, by the time I had even come across Harvey in my career, I was about to win an Academy Award.
‘I was getting The Hunger Games. So I avoided that specific situation.’
Hunger Games star Jennifer previously spoke about the leaked photos, telling Vogue: ‘I think people saw (the hacking) for what it was, which was a sex crime, but 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 actress had been the victim of a phishing campaign by Edward Majerczyk, from Chicago.
In January 2017, Majerczyk, then 29, was jailed for nine months after admitting hacking the accounts of 30 celebrities but was not convicted of posting the images online.
Jennifer, who won an Oscar for her performance in Silver Linings Playbook in 2013, is known for her roles as Katniss Everdeen in the Hunger Games and Mystique in X-Men, and is about to star alongside Leonardo DiCaprio in the star-studded flick Don’t Look Up.
