25 Hollywood Nude Photo Scandals

"When the hacking thing happened, it was so unbelievably violating that you can't even put into words," actress says.

Jennifer Lawrence is one of the fortunate actresses to skate through a dream career in Hollywood without experiencing any of Harvey Weinstein's alleged sexual misconduct, but she's still wrestling with another assault on her privacy: That time someone stole her nude photographs and posted them online in 2014.

"When the hacking thing happened, it was so unbelievably violating that you can't even put into words," the Oscar winner told the Hollywood Reporter while reflecting on the hack.

"I feel like I got gang banged by the f-cking planet," Lawrence continued. "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."

The 27-year-old "mother!" star continued to explain that she decided to forgo suing any party that might have been involved in releasing her hacked photos because the court process wouldn't erase the images from the internet and viewers' memories.

"None of that was going to bring me peace and none of that was going to bring my nude body back to me and Nick [Holt], the person they were intended for," she said.

Lawrence felt like the incident made her an "imposter" because parents still felt like she was a good role model for young women. The actress reflected on a time she was told that exact statement about a year and a half ago and ran into the bathroom to cry saying, "I felt like an impostor or I felt like I can't believe someone still feels that way."

As for the current flood of sexual harassment and abuse allegations against Weinstein, a producer with whom she worked with on "Silver Livings Playbook," Lawrence said the whole situation was strange considering they have always had appropriate interactions.

"It was bizarre," she said. "I heard that he was a dog, but he was always almost paternal to me. He was never inappropriate with me."

"I thought we had a nice relationship where when he acted like an asshole, I called him an asshole," the actress added. "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 now been accused by more than 100 women. Although he is under investigation by NYPD, LAPD, Scotland Yard and the Beverly Hills police, he still denies the claims.

A rep for the producer said: "Any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein. Mr. Weinstein has further confirmed that there were never any acts of retaliation against any women for refusing his advances. Mr. Weinstein obviously can’t speak to anonymous allegations, but with respect to any women who have made allegations on the record, Mr. Weinstein believes that all of these relationships were consensual. Mr. Weinstein has begun counseling, has listened to the community and is pursuing a better path. Mr. Weinstein is hoping that, if he makes enough progress, he will be given a second chance."
