LONDON: As hundreds of Hollywood women have come forward with their own stories of sexual misconduct, Jennifer Lawrence looked back at her own invasion of privacy.
The Oscar winner had her nude photos stolen in a widespread hack in 2014, which she said she’s still processing.
“When the hacking thing happened, it was so unbelievably violating that you can’t even put into words,” she told.
“I feel like I got gangbanged by the f–king planet. There was 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.”
While some suggested she sue, Lawrence said that wouldn’t have brought her “peace.” Instead, she said, she focused on healing.
“I think, like, a year and a half ago, somebody said something to me about how I was ‘a good role model for girls,’ and I had to go into the bathroom and sob because I felt like an imposter,” she said.
“I felt like, ‘I can’t believe somebody still feels that way after what happened.’ It’s so many different things to process when you’ve been violated like that.”
As for the current wave of sexual harassment sweeping Hollywood, Lawrence said she never had any inappropriate reactions with Harvey Weinstein, with whom she worked with on “Silver Linings Playbook.”
“It was bizarre. I heard that he was a dog but he was always almost paternal to me. He was never inappropriate with me,” she told.
“I thought we had a nice relationship where when he acted like an a–hole, I called him an a–hole. I actually think the word I used was ‘a sadistic monster,’ but it was just never of that nature so that was really shocking.”
Weinstein has been accused of sexual harassment and assault by more than 100 women.
He is under investigation by NYPD, LAPD, Scotland Yard and Beverly Hills police and being sued by several women.
