Jennifer Lawrence recently opened up about a number of various different topics in a recent interview promoting her new film, Don’t Look Up. Some of those issues include experiencing a near death experience, challenges that come with being a famous woman in the pre and post #MeToo Hollywood – and also opens up about a nude photo leak that happened back in 2014.
For those unaware, nude photos of Lawrence were leaked onto the internet by iCloud hackers – giving any person with an internet connection access the ability to search for and see them.
Speaking on these topics with Vanity Fair, the actress spoke about the trauma that has been caused by that nude leak.
“Anybody can go look at my naked body without my consent, any time of the day. Somebody in France just published them. My trauma will exist forever.”
The actress also spoke about Harvey Weinstein, saying:
“By the time I came across Harvey, I was about to win an Academy Award. I was getting The Hunger Games. It’s not like I’ve gone my entire career with men being appropriate. But that’s a perfect example of where getting power quickly did save me.”
“Harvey’s victims were women that believed that he was going to help them. Fortunately, by the time I had even come across Harvey in my career, I was about to win an Academy Award. I was getting The Hunger Games. So I avoided that specific situation. Of course, I’m a woman in the professional world. So it’s not like I’ve gone my entire career with men being appropriate. But, yeah, that’s a perfect example of where getting power quickly did save me.”
You can see Jennifer Lawrence next in the upcoming movie Don’t Look Up, which is scheduled to hit Netflix on December 10th.
