Jennifer Lawrence was one of many celebrities who had their photos stolen, many of them nude, and posted online. But the actress was not OK with it and she is not afraid to say exactly how she feels about the people who shared them.
One of those people was blogger, Perez Hilton, who posted the photos on his website — and only took them down after the public backlash.
“He took it down because people got p***ed, and that’s the only reason why,” Lawrence told Vanity Fair. “And then I had to watch his apology. And what he basically said was ‘I just didn’t think about it.’
“‘I just didn’t think about it’ is not an excuse. That is the exact issue itself.”
Hilton responded to Lawrence after her Vanity Fair interview was posted online on Monday, Oct. 20 with basically the exact opposite of an apology. He said, “This video is for Jennifer Lawrence, to say ‘f*** you!’ And I’m going to get in trouble for that, but I don’t give a s***.”
JLaw feels strongly about her photos being spread across the internet and she said it made her feel “sexually exploited and violated.”
“Anybody who looked at those pictures, you’re perpetuating a sexual offense,” she said. “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.
“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,” she added. “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.
“People forget that we’re human.”
