  • Jennifer Lawrence told Vanity Fair that appearing nude in her new movie “Red Sparrow” was a prospect that “scared the hell out of” her, following a 2014 hack that leaked her nude photos online.
  • Lawrence said that her “biggest fear” was that people would say “‘Oh, how can you complain about the hack if you’re going to get nude anyway?'”
  • Lawrence said in an interview on Sunday with “60 Minutes” that she ultimately felt “empowered” to do the nude scenes.

Jennifer Lawrence said in a new profile with Vanity Fair that she was wary of appearing nude in her new movie, “Red Sparrow,” following a 2014 hack that leaked her nude photos online.

Lawrence stars as a Russian secret intelligence agent in the film, a spy thriller filled with sex, violence, and nudity.

“‘Red Sparrow’ really scared the hell out of me because I get nude,” Lawrence said. “I tried to do the movie without nudity but realized it just wouldn’t be right to put the character through something that I, myself, am not willing to go through.”

The 27-year-old actress told Vanity Fair that she was concerned viewers would criticize her for appearing nude after she condemned the hack of her nude photos.

“My biggest fear was that people would say, ‘Oh, how can you complain about the hack if you’re going to get nude anyway?,'” Lawrence said.

Lawrence said in an interview with “60 Minutes” on Sunday that she ultimately felt “empowered” to do the nude scenes.

“I realized that there was a difference between consent and not and I showed up for the first day and I did it and I felt empowered,” Lawrence said. “I feel like something that was taken from me I got back and am using in my art.”

“Red Sparrow” opens in theaters on March 2.
