Jennifer Lawrence opened up about the 2014 scandal when the world got to see the Oscar-winning actress's private, nude photos.
She, alongside over 100 celebrities, was a victim of hackers. With so many nude celebrity pictures circulation online, it was impossible not to see at least some of them.
Lawrence called it a "trauma," adding it will "last forever." Considering her young age and the mere fact that her photos were among the most searched ones, it is easy to understand how strongly it affected the famous actress.
Lawrence About The Hacking Incident
In an interview with Vanity Fair, the blonde beauty said:
"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."
Previously, in 2017, she called the whole thing "impossible to process."
She heard about the news while flying from her home in Louisville, Kentucky, to New York City. The plane almost crashed, and it summed up Jennifer's feelings about the hacking incident.
The mom-to-be told in 2017:
"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."
Praying For Her Life
Lawrence also recalled the plane incident, saying:
"My skeleton was all that was left in the seat."
"We were all just going to die. I started leaving little mental voicemails to my family, you know, 'I've had a great life, I'm sorry.'"
The Silver Linings Playbook star added she almost felt guilty because everyone would be "bummed" about her death.
Before the emergency landing in Buffalo, the actress started praying, something that was not her everyday occurrence:
"I started praying. Not to the specific God, I grew up with because he was terrifying and a very judgmental guy."
"But I thought, 'Oh, my God, maybe we'll survive this? I'll be a burn victim, this will be painful, but maybe we'll live.'"
The plane had a safe emergency landing, but the experience stayed with the actress:
"It made me a lot weaker. Flying is horrific, and I have to do it all the time."
Lawrence's new film, the Netflix ensemble Don't Look Up, will be released on 10 December.
