Jennifer Lawrence revealed why she decided not to sue over her leaked nude photos
We’ve always loved Jennifer Lawrence for her incredible talent and candor. And in a recent interview for The Hollywood Reporter podcast, Lawrence opened up about the 2014 nude photo leak in which hackers attained intimate pictures from her cell phone and put them on the internet.
Lawrence was one of the more than 100 celebrities whose private photos were leaked in the iCloud hack in 2014. In January 2017, the hacker responsible was sentenced to 18 months in prison and ordered to pay $7,500 in damages to one of the victims.
Lawrence said she had originally considered suing Apple but eventually decided against it. She said she didn’t feel like a lawsuit could bring her closure or help her recover the privacy she lost.
Lawrence says that now, three whole years later, she’s still affected by the leak.
No one should ever have to experience this type of personal violation, and we completely understand Lawrence’s desire to simply heal. We hope she finds peace soon — and we hope she knows we support her, 100%.
