Jennifer Lawrence Opens Up About The Leaked Photos Scandal: 'I'm Still Processing It'

Jennifer Lawrence Opens Up About The Leaked Photos Scandal: 'I'm Still Processing It'

For many people, the infamous nude leaked photos scandal in 2014 seems like it was ages ago. Most of us have probably forgotten about it until now. 
But the horror of being a victim of the viral photo hack hasn't left Jennifer Lawrence.

Recently, Jennifer Lawrence revealed how she felt about having her personal photos stolen from her phone and distributed all over the internet.

Even though the incident happened three years ago, she says she still hasn't been able to fully move on from the traumatizing event.

"When the hacking thing happened, it was so unbelievably violating that you can’t even put it into words. I think that I’m still actually processing it," she told The Hollywood Reporter.

It's been hard for her to accept how easy it is for people around the world to still have access to those photos without her consent.  

And, I don’t know, I feel like I got gang-banged by the f***ing planet — like, there's not one person in the world that is not capable of seeing these intimate photos of me. You can just be at a barbecue and somebody can just pull them up on their phone. That was a really impossible thing to process.

Even though most people's first instinct would be to sue, Lawrence decided not to because she felt like there wasn't any point to it.

None of that was gonna really bring me peace, none of that was gonna bring my nude body back to me and Nic [Jennifer's ex-boyfriend Nicholas Hoult], the person that they were intended for. It wasn’t gonna bring any of that back. So I wasn’t interested in suing everybody; I was just interested in healing.

The healing process for Jennifer has been difficult, and she outlined what it meant for her to still be considered a role model.

Somebody said something to me about how I was 'a good role model for girls,' and I had to go into the bathroom and sob because I felt like an impostor — I felt like, 'I can’t believe somebody still feels that way after what happened.' It’s so many different things to process when you’ve been violated like that.

Jennifer brings up a good point that we all need to remember when any personal and intimate photos get leaked: It's a violation of the owner of those photos. She never consented to have those photos seen by the world. 
The narrative around the incident should always be focused on the fact that this was a crime against her and not about whether those photos were "appropriate" or not.
