En dat is voor het eerst, sinds ruim een maand geleden The Fappening gebeurde – de naam die de schaamteloze hack-actie van de naaktfoto’s van Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton en Kirsten Dunst heeft gekregen.
De cover met een topless Jennifer Lawrence was al geschoten, en óók het interview was al gedaan. Toen gebeurde The Fappening en besloot redacteur Sam Kashner Lawrence opnieuw te interviewen, maar nu over de gepikte naaktfoto’s.
Het hele interview lees je in het novembernummer van Vanity Fair, maar hieronder alvast fragmenten uit Lawrences openhartige reactie.
OVER DE ACTIE
‘Just because I’m a public figure, just because I’m an actress, does not mean that I asked for this. It does not mean that it comes with the territory. It’s my body, and it should be my choice, and the fact that it is not my choice is absolutely disgusting. I can’t believe that we even live in that kind of world.’
OVER DE FOTO’S
‘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.’
OVER DE WETTEN
‘It is not a scandal. It is a sex crime. It is a sexual violation. It’s disgusting. The law needs to be changed, and we need to change. That’s why these Web sites are responsible. Just the fact that somebody can be sexually exploited and violated, and the first thought that crosses somebody’s mind is to make a profit from it. It’s so beyond me. I just can’t imagine being that detached from humanity. I can’t imagine being that thoughtless and careless and so empty inside.’
OVER IEDEREEN DIE NAAR DE FOTO’S KIJKT
‘Anybody who looked at those pictures, you’re perpetuating a sexual offense. You should cower with shame. Even people who I know and love say, ‘Oh, yeah, I looked at the pictures.’ I don’t want to get mad, but at the same time I’m thinking, I didn’t tell you that you could look at my naked body.’
OVER HET TELEFOONTJE NAAR HAAR VADER
‘When I have to make that phone call to my dad and tell him what’s happened … I don’t care how much money I get for The Hunger Games. I promise you, anybody given the choice of that kind of money or having to make a phone call to tell your dad that something like that has happened, it’s not worth it. Fortunately, he was playing golf, so he was in a good mood.’
Woorden waar helemaal niets aan af te dingen valt. Go, Lawrence.
