Jennifer Lawrence Speaks Out For The First Time Since Nude Photo Hacking! Calls The Violation A ‘Sex Crime’ In Vanity Fair!

no title

There was the quick appearance at iHeartRadio with boyfriend Chris Martin, and seldom paparazzi snaps…

But Jennifer Lawrence hasn’t spoken publicly about the nude photo hacking that rocked her in late August, until now!

In the November issue of Vanity Fair, J.Law opened up about the violation of privacy, confessing her disgust in all of it:

“I was just so afraid. 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 does not mean that it comes with the territory. 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.”

The 24-year-old star even wanted to write a statement after other actresses came forward, but decided she isn’t sorry for anything:

“Every single thing that I tried to write made me cry or get angry. I started to write an apology, but I don’t have anything to say I’m sorry for. 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 continued, explaining that not only should people feel shame for having looked at the pictures, but Web laws need changing:

“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. 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. It’s so beyond me. I just can’t imagine being that detached from humanity. 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. Even people who I know and love say, ├óΓé¼╦£Oh, yeah, I looked at the pictures.’ I don’t want to get mad, but at the same time I’m thinking, I didn’t tell you that you could look at my naked body.”

The Oscar winner also recalled the moment she had to tell her father the news — something every female can empathize with:

“When I have to make that phone call to my dad and tell him what’s happened ├óΓé¼┬ª I don’t care how much money I get for The Hunger Games. I promise you, anybody given the choice of that kind of money or having to make a phone call to tell your dad that something like that has happened, it’s not worth it. Fortunately, he was playing golf, so he was in a good mood.”

There’s that sarcastic side we’ve been missing for the past month. So wonderful that through it all, she can still take time to crack a joke!

Jennifer even had a wise message for tabloids, who seem to write about her every move:

“You have a choice. You don’t have to be a person who spreads negativity and lies for a living. You can do something good. You can be good. Let’s just make that choice and├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥it feels better.”

Luckily, The Hunger Games actress is on the mend, and can look back to reflect on all that went down. She explained in one final thought, that everything is going to be okay:

“Time does heal, you know. I’m not crying about it anymore. I can’t be angry anymore. I can’t have my happiness rest on these people being caught, because they might not be. I need to just find my own peace.”

We’re so thrilled to see she’s doing better and hopefully the F.B.I. can nail the perps in charge of this grossly invasive crime!

It’s all up from here, Jennifer!
