Don’t Look Up star Jennifer Lawrence has shared the traumatic experiences that led her to take a break from acting and the spotlight entirely.
In her first big magazine interview in years, the actress spoke to Vanity Fair, first sharing candidly the impact of her naked photos being leaked.
The 2014 iCloud privacy breach impacted hundreds of celebrities, including Jennifer, and hackers disseminated her photos across the internet.
“Anybody can go look at my naked body without my consent, any time of the day,” the actress said.
“Somebody in France just published them. My trauma will exist forever.”
Speaking about this years prior with the Hollywood Reporter, Jennifer described the experience as being “gang-banged by the f****** planet.”
“You can just be at a barbecue and somebody can just pull them up on their phone. That was a really impossible thing to process,” she said.
The Oscar-winner also shared the catalyst that led to her hiatus from acting and the spotlight.
While on a private flight in 2017 with one other person, the plane experienced double engine failure.
She was en route to New York City from her hometown of Louisville, Kentucky, and the pilot had to attempt an emergency landing in Buffalo, New York.
‘Gang-banged by the f****** planet’
“My skeleton was all that was left in the seat,” the actress said.
“We were all just going to die.
“I started leaving little mental voicemails to my family, you know, ‘I’ve had a great life, I’m sorry.’”
“I just felt guilty, everybody was going to be so bummed,” the mum-to-be said.
“And, oh, God, Pippi [her dog] was on my lap, that was the worst part. Here’s this little thing who didn’t ask to be a part of any of this.”
Jennifer then described praying “not to specific God… but I thought, oh, my God, maybe we’ll survive this?”
Of the experience, the actress said it “made me a lot weaker. Flying is horrific and I have to do it all the time.”
Jennifer’s comeback film and first comedy in her career Don’t Look Up, is released on 9 December 2021 in Australia, via Netflix.
