Jennifer Lawrence discusses the psychological impact of nude photo leak

"There was a long period when I didn't want to be seen sexually and I didn't want anybody to see my flesh"

Jennifer Lawrence has opened up on the psychological impact of her nude photos being leaked onto the internet.

The incident – dubbed ‘The Fappening’ in some corners of the internet – saw Lawrence’s nudes leaked alongside countless other celebrities’ after hackers breached online storage systems such as iCloud. It was the most high profile incident of its kind, inspiring a number of changes to online security systems, and an extensive FBI investigation.

Now, Lawrence has discussed the impact the event had on her mental wellbeing. “There was a long period when I didn’t want to be seen sexually and I didn’t want anybody to see my flesh,” the 27-year-old actress said, as IB Times report. “There were things that made me uncomfortable.”

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter back in November,  Lawrence admitted she felt “gang-banged by the f*****g planet.”

“There’s not one person in the world that is not capable of seeing these intimate photos of me,” she added. “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.”

Lawrence continued: “A lot of women were affected, and a lot of them reached out to me about suing Apple or suing [others] — and none of that was gonna really bring me peace, none of that was gonna bring my nude body back to me and Nic [Lawrence’s boyfriend at the time, Nicholas Hoult], the person that they were intended for. It wasn’t gonna bring any of that back. So I wasn’t interested in suing everybody; I was just interested in healing.”
