Jennifer Lawrence Still Feels "Terrified" Following Nude Photo Hack

"It's scary when you feel the whole world judges you"

Jennifer Lawrence said she felt like the whole world was judging her when nude photos surfaced online.

Lawrence was one of the celebrities affected by "the fappening" - an iCloud hack that lead to a collection of around 500 private photos, mainly women, mainly naked, being posted to 4Chan.

It didn't take long for those photos, including a number of fakes, to go viral. The man behind the hack was later imprisoned for 9 months, but it seems that Lawrence is serving a longer sentence.

Speaking toVogue for their September issue, Lawrence said she still worries every time her publicist calls.

"It's scary when you feel the whole world judges you. I think people saw [the hacking] for what it was, which was a sex crime, but that feeling, I haven't been able to get rid of it. Having your privacy violated constantly isn't a problem if you're perfect. But if you're human, it's terrifying."

"When my publicist calls me, I'm like, 'Oh my God, what is it?' Even when it's nothing. I'm always waiting to be blindsided."

Lawrence took one of those calls back in May, after someone filmed her pole dancing at a birthday party in Vienna.

It didn't take long for the footage to surface online.

At the time, she took to Facebook to say she had nothing to apologise for as she "had a BLAST".

But now speaking about the video for the first time, Lawrence said her biggest fear was that the situation had been taken out of context. That, and the fact she wasn't actually topless.

"My biggest fear from that whole thing was that people were going to think I was trying to be sexy. Also, it looked like I had taken my shirt off. I was in a crop top. I did not take off my shirt. I'm on the phone with my lawyers, and everybody's like, 'Is there anything we need to know before it comes out?' And I'm like, 'No, it's all there.'"
