If you were anywhere near the Internet in the past month, then you know about the hundreds of leaked celebrity nude pics and the controversy that followed. A lot of groups used this scandal as a platform to talk about privacy, digital safety and consent. For the first time since the incident, Jennifer Lawrence broke the silence and talked about her nude pics in an interview with Vanity Fair.

“It’s my body and it should be my choice” said the actress. “It’s not a scandal, it’s a sex crime”. The Hunger Games star said that she was tempted to write a public apology many times, but when it came down to it, she had nothing to be sorry for: “I was in a loving, healthy, great relationship for four years. It was long distance, and either your boyfriend is going to look at porn or he’s going to look at you.” And she’s right. She did nothing wrong. The people who stole her pictures did.

And the sad truth is, this is nothing new. Internet communities have been doing this for years. There are entire websites dedicated to sharing and showcasing stolen nude pictures. The only thing that makes this case special is the sheer amount of pictures released. Hundreds of celebrities had their privacy invaded and their pictures released for everyone to see. Some people tried to justify the incident and their own viewing of the pictures by saying that celebrities should expect that kind of thing. But Jennifer disagrees. “Just because I’m a public figure, just because I’m an actress, does not mean that I asked for this. It doesn’t come with the territory. It’s my body and it should be my choice. The fact that it’s not is absolutely disgusting. I can’t believe that we live in that kind of world”.

Of course, some conspiracy theorists believe that this whole thing is nothing but a marketing strategy. In her interview, the movie star stated “I was just so afraid. I didn’t know how this would affect my career”. While it’s clear that her career won’t be compromised by the scandal and it may even benefit from it, that doesn’t excuse what happened.

Lawrence also explained exactly how she felt about the millions of people who downloaded or looked at her pictures. “It’s a sexual violation. Anybody who looked at those pictures, you’re perpetuating a sexual offense. You should cower with shame”.
