“It is not a scandal. It is a sex crime,” “It is a sexual violation. It’s disgusting.”“The law needs to be changed, and we need to change. That’s why these websites are responsible. Just the fact that somebody can be sexually exploited and violated, and the first thought that crosses somebody’s mind is to make a profit from it. It’s so beyond me. I just can’t imagine being that detached from humanity. I can’t imagine being that thoughtless and careless and so empty inside,” said Lawrence.

Nude photos of Lawrence were stolen from the actor’s Apple iCloud account and published by hackers on the website 4chan, along with naked photos of around 100 other female celebrities.

In the interview, Lawrence put across a sense of resentment and infringement not just with the hackers but held people who view the images equally responsible in the crime. In 3,000-word piece, Lawrence speaks comprehensively about an array of topics, including relationship and career.
