Jennifer Lawrence Says Hacking Is Just As Bad As A Sex Crime

Jennifer Lawrence has won numerous awards during the course of her career, including an Academy Award in the Best Actress category. According to Refinery 29, the actress got her first big break in A League of Their Own, a small film directed by Lori Petty.

Lori will always be credited for discovering Jennifer Lawrence's true potential and launching her career. In fact, the director decided to cast her in the film after catching a glimpse of Jennifer's potential on an amateur tape.

In Lori's opinion, Jennifer is not only blonde and sexy but she is also comfortable acting in front of the camera. Her fearless attitude towards the camera makes her even more impressive. Lori knew that Jennifer was a diamond in the rough so she decided to polish her acting skills, and she went on to groom the Hunger Games actress by teaching the newcomer all of her accumulated knowledge. Passing on her knowledge to Jennifer Lawrence never proved to be a challenge for Lori because the budding star was smart enough to follow her instructions. The only thing that Lori found amusing was Jennifer Lawrence's inability to use a record player, as the director couldn't believe that the talented actress had never come across a record player before.Jennifer Lawrence has influenced a number of budding celebrities that include 13-year-old Maddie Ziegler who aspires to walk in the Hunger Games actress's footsteps. Maddie, who featured in Dance Moms and a number of Sia's music videos, has admitted that she is a big fan of Jennifer Lawrence. ET Online reports that Maddie spoke about how amazed she was with her idol's versatility.
"She is an amazing actor and can do anything. She can be really quirky, and she's so funny in interviews I've seen."
Maddie even suggested that Jennifer Lawrence would be the perfect person to parody one of Sia's music videos, like "Cheap Thrills."Jennifer Lawrence's popularity has made her one of the prime targets for hackers who aspire to break into celebrities' personal accounts to gather photos and other private data. According to Techworm, Edward Majerczyk, an Illinois resident, has confessed to hacking into the iCloud and Gmail accounts of 300 people, including celebrities.

Previously, 36-year-old hacker Ryan Collins pled guilty to hacking into personal internet accounts by phishing. And during another incident, hackers accessed Jennifer Lawrence's personal account and gained access to her private photos, including nude photos. The hacker proceeded to post the nude photos on 4Chan so that they could be shared throughout the world. According to Techworm, Jennifer Lawrence terms the hacking as disgusting and a crime which is equivalent to a sex crime.

"Just because I'm a public figure, just because I'm an actress, does not mean that I asked for this. It's my body, and it should be my choice, and the fact that it is not my choice is absolutely disgusting."
FBI investigations have revealed that along with Jennifer Lawrence, celebrities like Kirsten Dunst and Kate Upton have also been targeted.

And on the professional front, Jennifer Lawrence's upcoming movie Passengers is due to be delayed as Digital Domain 3.0 (DD3), the company which provides the motion capture technology, has been caught in a legal predicament. Last month, a federal judge prohibited DD3 from using MOVA, a sophisticated motion capture technology that is used extensively by movie studios. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the $120 million Passengers film is a sci-fi extravaganza that features Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence.

The filmmakers have collaborated with DD3 to make use of their high-resolution facial capture work. Fortunately for Jennifer Lawrence and the others involved with the film, it is thought that DD3's legal issues will have no impact on post production or on the eventual release of the film.
