Oprah Interviewed Jennifer Lawrence & Asked All the Tough Questions

During an interview with Oprah Winfrey for The Hollywood Reporter, the "Mother! actress revealed that she struggled to process the allegations made against Weinstein, because she and the movie producer had a platonic relationship". The only thing that would make said evening better, according to J-Law, is three very specific people. "But the fact is I have been given a platform, and if I don't use it, then I don't deserve it", the actress said at The Hollywood Reporter's annual Women in Entertainment breakfast, presented by Lifetime, held Wednesday morning at Los Angeles' Milk Studios.

Jennifer Lawrence said her 2014 nude photo hack scared her away from sexualized movie roles.

She said: "Red Sparrow was sexual, and I haven't done anything sexy or sexual. She turned to me and she said, 'I know Michael is anxious about me, and I know he wanted you to talk to me but please don't worry about me'".

Of the hack, which saw nude images of herself and other celebrities distributed widely online, Lawrence said she would have preferred to have been robbed. It's taking somebody's intellectual property but also my body.

"And it's so widespread, the abuse, from so many different people - it's directors, it's producers - that I think everybody needed to [process it]. It was violating on a sexual level". "I'll never share that part of myself ever since it got shared against my will.' And then when I said yes to Red Sparrow, I felt I was taking something back".




Lawrence, 27, said she is happy more women are speaking out about their experiences with sexual harassment and abuse. I know that Jennifer will continue to be a role model and an inspiration for women everywhere.

Jennifer Lawrence was unaware of Harvey Weinstein's behavior behind closed doors.

Jennifer Lawrence has never met President Donald Trump, but she knows exactly what she's going to say ― and order to drink ― if she ever runs into him.

She continued to describe Weinstein as a "tough guy" and a "brute", but she maintained that she was unaware of his true persona. "I always knew I was going to be famous, so I am totally prepared for it", as Lawrence looked on embarrassed from the audience.

"As you may already know, The New York Times published their devastating report on Harvey Weinstein over two months ago, and since then, many women have come forward with their own stories under the hashtag-umbrella of "#MeToo".
