“It Is Not a Scandal. It Is a Sex Crime." | Jennifer Lawrence Responds to Nude Photo Leak
Jennifer Lawrence will cover the November issue of Vanity Fair. Today, VF released snippets of her interview, where she discussed the ongoing celebrity nude photo leak, a hideous violation of privacy—and her privacy has been violated again and again with each leak.
She had been tempted to write a statement when news of the privacy violation broke, she says, but “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.”
That sound in your head just now? That was a solidarity air guitar of perfect flawlessness.
Did curiousity get the best of you? Lawrence has something to say about that, too.
“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, ‘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.”
DAMN YES, FIST PUMPS OF “YOU GO GIRL.
“It is not a scandal. It is a sex crime,” she tells Kashner. “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.”
Let’s just run through the halls of our high school like John Mayer only less douche because this is a banner day for celebrities speaking the truth, giving zero fucks about playing nice. You tell ‘em, Jen.
