‘Anybody can go look at my naked body without my consent, any time of the day’

Hollywood actress Jennifer Lawrence, or J-Law if you’re a hardcore fan, has said that the “trauma” of her leaked private images will “last forever”.

Hackers in 2014 leaked Lawrence’s explicit images alongside more than 100 other celebrities. The X-Men recently actress spoke to Vanity Fair about the ordeal seven years after it occurred.

Lawrence 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.”

The Hunger Games star had previously spoken about the images back in 2017, saying: “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.”

In her new 2021 interview with Vanity Fair, a now pregnant Lawrence also opened up about her near-death experience. Back in 2017, the actress was flying via private jet from her hometown Louisville, Kentucky, to New York City when she was informed that the engines had failed.


She and her two brothers recall hearing a “loud noise” mid-flight before being told that the pilot was attempting an emergency landing.

She said: “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’.

“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.'”

Obviously, the plane landed safely – but that doesn’t mean Lawrence is still chill with flying.

“It made me a lot weaker. Flying is horrific and I have to do it all the time,” she concluded.
