Jennifer Lawrence

In September 2014, the interweb went berserk over leaked photos of over 100 celebrities, including ones of award-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence and Kirsten Dunst. An Apple iCloud breach was blamed for the much publicised leaks, which included nude photos. Apple refuted the claims that there was a breach and said it was a large scale targeted attack on user names, passwords and security questions.

Some parties claimed the theft (and subsequent leaks) of photos was due to a breach in iCloud and Apple’s Find my iPhone feature. A brute force attack using a Python script was purportedly used on victims’ accounts to gain access to their personal data.

In an recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter’s Awards Chatter podcast, Jennifer Lawrence revisits the leaked photos of her on the web.

“I feel like I got gang-banged by the fucking planet,” she said in the episode. “Like there’s not one person in the world that is not capable of seeing these intimate photos of me.”

At the time, Lawrence was climbing up the popularity ladder, with two successful major releases: X-Men: Days of Future Past; and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1. Just turned 24 at the time, the privacy breach shook her, and the hundreds of other celebrities.

Kirsten Dunst, who was also another high-profile victim, posted in a tweet, “Thank you, iCloud.”

“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 former boyfriend Nicholas Hoult], the person that they were intended for,” she explained. “It wasn’t gonna bring any of that back. So I wasn’t interested in suing everybody; I was just interested in healing.”
