Jennifer Lawrence covers the November issue of “Vanity Fair,” and in her interview she speaks out for the first time about her nude photos that were leaked, and the “Hunger Games” actress is not apologizing.

Though the 24-year-old did the shoot in July and her interview two weeks before an estimated 100 of her nude and personal photos were leaked online for the world to see, Lawrence met with contributing editor Sam Kashner again afterward so she could comment on the leak.

Unlike other celebrities who had their nude photos leaked, Lawrence has issued no statement or made any comment since the leak happened. (RELATED: Nude Photos Of Jennifer Lawrence Leaked)

The interview is her first public response.

“Just because I’m a public figure, just because I’m an actress, does not mean that I 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.

Lawrence said she tried to write a statement, but everything she wrote “made me cry or get angry.”

“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 also called the leak not simply a scandal, but a “sex crime,” and puts responsibility on the websites that hosted the photos. (RELATED: Celebrities Threaten Google With Lawsuit Over Nude Photos)

“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,” Lawrence said.

Lawrence also said she was angered by people she knew, and loved, who looked at the photos.

“I don’t want to get mad, but at the same time I’m thinking, I didn’t tell you that you could look at my naked body.”

She said making the phone call to tell her father what happened was not worth any kind of money, but that time does heal and she “isn’t crying about it anymore.”

The November issue is available Oct. 14.
