Jennifer Lawrence has spoken out about the leaked nude photos.

Jennifer Lawrence has spoken to Vanity Fair.

Jennifer Lawrence has spoken out about her hacked nude photos for the first time, referring to the scandal as “a sex crime.”

In an interview with Vanity Fair, Lawrence expressed anger that the pictures, which were released as part of a large hack of celebrity nude photos on August 31, were leaked.

“It is a sexual violation. It’s disgusting,” she said.

“The law needs to be changed, and we need to change. That’s why these websites are responsible.”

Lawrence added that her fame did not negate her right to privacy and control over her body.

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

“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.”

Lawrence also had a message for celebrity news sites who spread the photos.

“You have a choice. You don’t have to be a person who spreads negativity and lies for a living,” she said. “You can do something good. You can be good. Let’s just make that choice.”

Well-spoken, J-Law.
