The Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence has not gotten past the infamous invasion of her privacy, where several of her personal nude photos were leaked online on sites like 4chan and Reddit.
During a recent interview, Lawrence spoke about dealing with the ordeal and making efforts towards changing the laws against such acts.
"I knew the paparazzi were going to be a reality in my life," the 24-year-old Oscar winner said, according to a 17 November report by Fox News. "But I didn't know that I would feel anxiety every time I open my front door. You can say, 'This (invasion of privacy) is part of my job and this is going to be a reality of my life,' but what you don't expect is how your body and how your emotions are going to react to it."
The X-Men actress added that there are some things that she could not really prepare herself for. As an example, she described checking into a hotel and opening the window to discover "a team of paparazzi outside that are shooting up into my hotel room. And we can't ask them to move because they're on public property. And they can photograph me because I'm a public person or can chase me because I'm a public person."
"If these laws are going to be in place to protect the press and to protect the paparazzi and to protect the news," she said, "then new measures need to be made, because this is an entirely new phenomenon."
"And my belief, and it's something I am going to work very hard on changing and I hope it changes before I die, is to make it illegal to buy, post or shop a photo that's been obtained illegally," she said.
"I have photographers that jump my fence ... if somebody jumps my fence and takes a picture through my window of me naked, that's illegal, but the photos can still be everywhere (online) the next day, and that makes no sense!"
