Jennifer Lawrence tells Vanity Fair that hacking is a sex crime

SHARE Jennifer Lawrence tells Vanity Fair that hacking is a sex crime

Jennifer Lawrence is the subject of Vanity Fair’s cover story next month, and she has a lot to say about the recent theft of her personal digital photos.

The actress met with Vanity Fair’s contributing editor Sam Kashner in early August — before the hacking incident Aug. 31. The writer followed up with her afterward to allow Lawrence the opportunity to speak out about it. Prior to that interview, Lawrence has not commented publicly.

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

About the hackers, she said, “It is not a scandal. It is a sex crime. It is a sexual violation.”

The magazine, with the 3000-word article, appears online Wednesday and on newsstands on Thursday.
