It's not a scandal, it's a sex crime: Jennifer Lawrence opens up about nude photos hack

Since Jennifer Lawrence's nude photos were hacked in August, she has remained silent about the violation, until now.

During an interview with Vanity Fair magazine, the Silver Linings Playbook actress opened up about how badly the hack affected her, and how violated she feels.

Josh Hutcherson: JLaw hacking scandal is 'f***ing horrible'

"It is not a scandal. It is a sex crime," Lawrence told Vanity Fair. "It is a sexual violation. It's disgusting.

"The law needs to be changed, and we need to change. That's why these websites are responsible," she continued. "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."

The nude photos hack has been a controversial topic and Lawrence was left completely shocked when her personal photos were leaked and distributed online.

"Just because I'm a public figure, just because I'm an actress, does not mean that I asked for this," she told the publication. "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."

Lawrence's rep condemned the hack at the time, but The Hunger Games star chose not to make a statement because she was so emotional about the decision that she was unsure of what to say.

"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."

But the hardest part for Lawrence about the leak of her intimate pictures was having to tell her family about it. The actress went on to explain that if she had the choice between all the money she makes from The Hunger Games or making a phone call to her dad, she'd forgo the cash.
