Jennifer Lawrence's Response to Nude Photos Is Exactly Why We Love Her

A few months after nude photos of Jennifer Lawrence were leaked online, the actress has finally broken her silence on the ordeal. Lawrence spoke to Vanity Fair about her phone being hacked, and, like pretty much everything Lawrence does, it was a breath of fresh air.

Lawrence admitted that the photos were hers and that they were meant for her long-time boyfriend at the time, Nicholas Hoult. She says she initially thought about issuing an apology after the leak, but then thought better of it. "Every single thing that I tried to write made me cry or get angry," she said. "I started to write an apology, but I don't have anything to say I'm 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."

Truth. But, as far as being honest goes, Lawrence got most candid when talking about her career.

When the photos first hit the Internet, Lawrence said, "I was just so afraid. I didn't know how this would affect my career." She immediately released a statement through her publicist, calling the hacking a "flagrant violation of privacy," but, ultimately, she was genuinely scared of the incident, in so many words, ruining the extremely well-respected career she's built for herself as an actress. And I've gotta say: I think it's incredibly admirable that she put herself out there and admitted that. Not many actresses would do that.

It can't be easy for Lawrence to talk about naked pictures of herself being released all over the Internet. It's embarrassing, and it is a violation of privacy. But the sad fact is they're out there and far too big of an elephant in the digital room to ignore. Admitting that the photos were hers and talking about how she was incredibly freaked out about the repercussions of them being exposed took guts and, well, more vulnerability.

It's highly unlikely that these photos will have any bearing on Lawrence's career as an actress. She's incredibly talented and unbelievably candid -- which is exactly why everyone took to her so quickly in the first place.
