As Vanity Fair’s November cover story, Lawrence opens up about what she calls a “sex crime.” She told the mag, "It is not a scandal… it is a sexual violation. It's disgusting.”

The Oscar winner also revealed why it has taken her so long to speak about it herself. "Every single thing that I tried to write made me cry or get angry. 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," Lawrence said, saying those snaps were for ex-boyfriend and "X-Men" co-star Nicholas Hoult's eyes only.

Lawrence said that being a public figure does not mean she “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. "

She added, "The law needs to be changed, and we need to change.”

The “Hunger Games” star also pointed fingers at websites that posted the pics. "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."

As for now, Lawrence is letting time heal her outrage. "I'm not crying about it anymore. I can't be angry anymore. I can't have my happiness rest on these people being caught, because they might not be. I need to just find my own peace."
