JENNIFER Lawrence has exposed about why she didn’t sue on the 2014 nude photography scandal that noticed her romantic, private images hacked and splashed over the internet.
“I feel like I got gangbanged by the f–king entire world. There was not one person on the globe that’s not capable of finding these intimate photographs of me,” the 27-year-old said over the Hollywood Reporter’s Awards Chatter Podcast.
The Oscar success added: “When the hacking thing happened — it was so unbelievably violating that you can’t even placed into words. I think that I am still actually digesting.”
Talking about the aftermath of the leak, Lawrence said many people suggested she sue. However the Hunger Games celebrity didn’t take legal action against Apple for the security lapse or those in charge of the hack because it wouldn’t remove the images from the net.
“None of that was going to bring me serenity and none of that would bring my nude body back to me and Nick [Holt], the person they were intended for,” she said.
Elsewhere in the interview, talk turned to this issue of intimate misconduct and the allegations flooding Hollywood. Lawrence said she had many dealings with disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, who produced her 2012 Oscar-winning flick Magic Linings Playbook.
“Then with Harvey Weinstein, it was bizarre. I read that he was a puppy but he was always almost paternal if you ask me,” she said. “He was never improper with me. I thought we had a nice relationship where when he acted as an asshole, I called him an asshole. I actually think the term I used was a sadistic monster, but it was just never of that character so that was really shocking.”
She also accepted: “I’ve never had a man use his capacity to sexually misuse me.”
