Chris Martin is ‘very supportive’ over Jennifer Lawrence’s stolen photos

Jennifer Lawrence

This past weekend’s mass celeb photo leak news made everyone forget how Jennifer Lawerence is one half of the strange couple of the year. Poor JLaw’s photos were hacked from iCloud. Her privacy has been violated. She’s a victim of entitled hackers who think they have the right to see her at her most vulnerable. The aftermath will be ongoing. The FBI is involved. Apple released a patch for an iCloud bug and also tried to distance themselves from responsibility. Apple must be worried because they’re phasing in a security alert system for iCloud account holders. This will play out for awhile.

The gossip cycle brings us back to few weeks ago when we were a little more innocent. Because I guess people want to know how Chris Martin reacted to the stolen photos. Hollywood Life has heard from a source that says Chris is standing by JLaw. This story is probably fanfiction, but why wouldn’t he support her during this tough time?

A source tells what Chris thinks about the “disturbing” hack. Chris and Jen have fallen for each other — and fast. Despite this scandal, we’ve learned that Chris has NO plans to leave Jen’s side.

“Chris doesn’t care that Jennifer took naked pics of herself, he’s more concerned that her privacy was invaded,” a source tells “The whole thing is disturbing and Chris has just been very supportive.”

Our source reveals that Chris is NOT the kind of man who would break up with Jen right now. “He would never end things with Jennifer over something like this,” our source spills. The couple are using humor to get through this negative situation!

“It will pass, that’s what he tells her. And he just uses his quirky sense of humor to help her look at the funny side. They both do a lot of laughing together, which is what really attracted them to each other in the first place,” our source says.

As we previously reported, Jen isn’t taking this nude photo leak lightly.

“Jen is horrified over this leak and knows that this will possibly affect her upcoming roles,” a source told “She knows that A list stars don’t have this type of controversy attached to them and is very much horrified over the whole situation.”

[From Hollywood Life]

I don’t know that “humor” is the best way to deal with this situation. Humor minimizes the crimes that have taken place. Then again, no one is in any position to tell Jennifer how to react. And this story might not be true.

Will the photo leak affect Jennifer’s career? I don’t sense any trouble on that frontier. Most people are empathetic to her plight, as they should be. The detractors are vocal, but I’m convinced that they are a minority. I do worry about JLaw suffering enduring emotional trauma. She’s been humilated in front of the world. If she wasn’t due to start promoting Mockingjay soon, she’d probably disappear for a long time.

Side note: This week’s gossip section in the Enquirer spoke to one of Gwyneth Paltrow’s friends, who says that Goop is “secretly seething.” She’s only pretending to give her blessing to Chris’ new relationship. That makes sense. Goop would never admit her inferiority because Goop is inferior to no one. I still think Goop looks silly for sending her peeps out to talk about how JLaw is just like her.

Here’s the newly released poster for Mockingjay: Part One. Simple and effective.

    I so much dislike this couple.

    I don’t think it will affect J Law’s career. She was a victim of a crime and I think most people just feel bad for her.

    I also don’t think Goop cares that much in terms of being jealous-I think she’s over Chris. But I bet it bothers her a bit that Jennifer is so much younger than her.

    • Miss M says:

      I agree with you in all accounts (I dislike this couple too).

    • Ollyholly says:

      If I’m being honest, I actually think this will only make her more beloved- I’ve read every single story about this horrible violation of her privacy, and everything I’ve read (other than sexist trolls) has been supportive of her, even protective of her.

      Her career will be fine, maybe even stronger if she pulls through with strength and confidence like I think she will.

    • DavidBowie says:


    • stellalovejoydiver says:

      It shouldn’t affect her career, but we live in a patriachal society where women get shamed for their sexuality. She works in a men’s business, most of them including her buddy director DOR is from the “she was asking for it”-party, see when he sexually molested his transgender niece.

      • T.C. says:

        True Hollywood is a man’s world and the men decide what will happen to women’s careers. This shaming of women for enjoying their bodies and sexuality will be viewed differently only when pictures of men’s private parts are also released. Then you will see rapid action to stop this type of hacking.

        I was happy to see Apple’s stock start sliding down as more information about the iCloud problems came out. Yes I own Apple stocks but I am not happy with them over their reaction to this mess.

      • K says:

        I read an interesting article on this that talked about how the reaction of outrage is in itself rather patriarchal. It points out that if the stolen images were of Paris Hilton or KK, people would say they were talentless attention whores and shouldn’t have taken them and probably leaked them themselves. But because JLaw is so respected, most people are angry on her behalf. The argument is that it’s basically another example of how some women are put on pedestals and others are whores – good girls and bad girls – and the assumption that she took the images to keep a long-term but long-distance relationship alive is actually totally irrelevant to the consent issue, but still heavily focused on in justifying her having taken them at all – like that needed justification, or is anyone else’s business.

      • stellalovejoydiver says:

        @K: that article sounds interesting. Do you have a link?

      • Em says:

        Not saying anything about the stolen photos, it was obviously a crime, but is no one wondering why random people at the Emmy’s had naked pics of some of these women? Seems extremely odd.

      • wolfpup says:

        Stellalovejoydiver: you asked for a link and I just can’t help posting this one about the objectification of women. I found it this morning and thought it very informative.

        I should read down the page, but right now I think that Jennifer Lawrence is just beautiful (who didn’t look?..under the guise of curiosity… ). Probably Chris feels that she is a great conquest, after Gwyneth. Conquest is not such a great word, but men still like their arm candy! For the feminist argument against sexual objectification. I hope that you read this link; it’s so spot on, to me.

      • wolfpup says:

        I know many of you didn’t look at any of these photo’s out respect and solidarity. Bad wolfpup!

    • Erinn says:

      I’d love to see what people would have said if her credit card info had gotten stolen. I suppose it’d be her fault for ‘putting it out there’ though.

      Anyone remember the heartbleed virus a little while back? It was totttaallllyyy all those people’s fault that their information was accessed. And the PSN being hacked? Totally their own fault for daring to use the internet for video games.

      I forgot – we only like to shame people for crimes others’ committed when it comes to women’s bodies.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        @ Erinn-I hope this post makes it through because I know it’s a bit graphic, but this situation reminded me of an episode of “I (Almost) Got Away With It” where a young college student’s parents brought her a brand-new silver SUV to commute to school. Shortly after the start of the school year, she started dating a guy from school who lived on the other not-so-nice side of town. One night she was picking him up to go to a party and they were briefly kissing in her car in the parking lot of his apartment complex. Well, that’s when two car jackers came up to them, jacked the car, threw them in a trunk, drove them to a remote location and tortured and murdered them. When interviewed by police, the murderers said that they were just driving around looking to steal a nice, new car and this car caught their eye.
        It was simply a crime of opportunity.

        I feel like the people who blame Jennifer Lawrence for taking nude pics…..would they blame this girl’s parents for buying her a new car? Would they blame her for driving her nice car to her boyfriend’s house in a not-so-nice neighborhood?
        …because it never would have happened if she didn’t have the new car–that woman and her boyfriend would still be alive today.

        My point is that the focus should ALWAYS be on the perpetrator, not on the victim. People make life decisions, buy new things, or use the internet assuming that it’s secure EVERY DAY. Is it really that out-of-line for us to expect that we WON’T be victims of a crime?

        Also, I wonder how many people out there have photos on their phone that they wouldn’t want the world to see. Even if not nudie pics, just private photos that you expect will remain private. I would venture that most of us do.

      • Erinn says:

        Exactly, OKitt. A crimes a crime, and the girl was completely violated.

        Hell, I have taken some far less than innocent photos when I was living away from Der, in college trying to make a long distance relationship work. I’d send them over BBM – he sent some pretty not-so-innocent photos as well – which certainly isn’t the most fool proof thing to do. There’s a risk that the photos could have been intercepted, but at the same time, I didn’t care. Obviously, had something happened, I’d have gone the route of addressing it legally, but I can at least understand why she would have done it, while working away from her boyfriend, or lover, or whoever. There’s nothing to be ashamed of in taking nudes, but there’s a whole lot to be ashamed of in being a criminal who violates people’s privacy.

        I can bet that almost everyone who shames her for this has bought something online. Things happen. Even really reputable sites can have breaches. A lot of people have spyware on their computers as well. I’m not going to live my life in fear, I’m just going to make sure I understand the risks of what I’m doing, and I’m sure she knew that there was a risk as well. Nothing is safe in this world. You could walk down the street and get hit by a bus. You’re not going to look at that kind of story and say “They should have known the sidewalk isn’t 100% safe”.

        I’m certainly not going to shame her for what was intended to be a private act – but I’m going to shame the hell out of the pathetic criminal that thought it was his right to just access these photos and then distribute them. I hope he’s made an example, to be honest.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        Yes to everything you said.

        I think you touched on why people are getting so upset about the very obvious sexism and shaming here, because if Jennifer and the other female celebs had been a victim of ANY other crime, anything that didn’t involve nude photos, everyone would be instantly sympathetic. Is Jennifer had her car stolen, or her house robbed, everyone would be expressing compassion and condemnation towards the perpetrator.

        ..and I’m tired of people saying “well if it was a famous dude taking d*ck pics, I’d say the same thing”. NO, because this would never happen with a man’s nudie pics. In other words, men can expect privacy, but women cannot.

        It’s pretty gross and I don’t blame people for getting angry.

    • Lady Macbeth says:

      With TOK on every point she made….

    • Tiffany :) says:

      I agree TOK.

      I don’t have a lot of reason not to like them as a couple, but his music is so void of personality that I imagine him being like his music.

    • normades says:

      I think Goop probably is flattered that her ex’s new gal is an A list starlet (making her in JLaw’s league). Just like how she prob loves that Brad is with Angelia.

  2. Allie says:

    I can’t believe he’s sticking with her, what a gent! Eye rolling. Why wouldn’t he? So stupid.

    How else can you deal with this personally than with humor? Yes, professionally you should take this very seriously and make sure your lawyers can do anything possible to bring those guys down. But personally? Are you just going to cry your eyes out for the rest of your life? I hope Chris is making her laugh, because that’s going to get her through this. While this is horrifying, its not the end of the world.

    • Buttock Fatock says:

      I so disagree with your response and casual attitude towards what happened. I don’t think targeted privacy violation and subsequent widespread sexual humiliation merit a humorous response.

      • Allie says:

        How would you deal with it? I’m not dismissing what happened to her but if I was in her shoes, I’d hope my family/friends would help me see the light. Humor doesn’t mean you’re dismissing what happened. It’s a coping mechanism.

      • Erinn says:

        I’d have to go with Allie. Professionally, you have to be serious about it, and really try to do whatever you can to get these guys punished. However, on a personal level, you can’t just lay in bed all day crying. It’s already been done. You need to try to distract yourself and keep yourself moving, not just break down and give up. And if humor helps, then perfect!

        However, I’m the kind of person that copes with humor as much as possible, so that’s part of my bias here. I agree the whole thing needs to be taken seriously, and I think Allie said that too – but you can’t just break down and never leave your bed either.

      • Sarah123 says:

        Allie was talking about public vs. private.

        Publicly her response has been to take this very seriously. Probably privately, too.

        But to be able to find some private moments of laughter when you’re hurting can be very healing.

      • Buttock Fatock says:

        I understand what you’re all saying, and appreciate we can agree she should take what happened seriously. My position is just that she has every right to feel (publicly, privately) violated. I agree that you can’t spend your life in bed crying, but if I were in her shoes and someone told me to just laugh it off… Yeah, nope. Maybe I should amend my early comment to say that I think she’s entitled to feel whatever she wants about the situation, and if that’s to retreat and privately heal, I don’t blame her.

      • Josefa says:

        Allie, I completely agree with you. My grandpa died because of the negligence of a cop, and while we’re making sure justice is made, we’ve found the best way to cope with this is through humor. People look at us weirdly asking us how we can take a family member’s death like that, but it’s OUR loss, OUR pain, and we’ll handle it OUR way. The fact you get the impression we’re minimizing the problem doesn’t mean we are.

      • Buttock Fatock says:

        I would agree with coping with problems in your own way, whatever works for you–be it humor, anger, etc. Whatever works for JLaw, as well. Team JLaw.

        Allie–my first response was poorly worded, I apologize to you. What I intended to convey was, that’s not how I would personally respond to this, there is another valid response other than humor, but you have every right to feel differently.


    • Liz says:

      I agree this article is so stupid. It sounds so made up.

      • delorb says:

        That’s what I came to post. Its like someone’s publicist is working overtime. Yeah, she got hacked, but a 2nd story to talk about how HE’S dealing with it? Tomorrow are we going to be graced with another non-story, story? “They both went out for ice cream, details at 11”

    • lucy2 says:

      I agree with you Allie, and hope that she does have supportive people around her who are bringing some lightness to her day right now – and that in no way takes away from the seriousness of the crime or how it’s addressed publicly. I can’t imagine the stress these women are under from all this, so I hope they all have people around them who can help alleviate that a little.

    • Michelle says:

      There were a bunch of full naked pictures of Gweneth and Brad Pitt from years ago that hit the internet. I’m sure Chris knows this happens.

    • A. Key says:

      I totally agree! People generally take themselves and life waaay too seriously. For gods sake, it’s naked pictures. Nothing is gonna change for her. She still has that Oscar. She still has Hunger Games and X-Men. She’s the no.1 celebrity. Her popularity is only rising. She’ll live. She’s got health, money, success, and apparently a decent boyfriend. Stop feeling sorry for her. I feel sorry for the other people on that list whose carriers will definitely take a blow because they’re not as famous or as powerful as Lawrence.

  3. Annika says:

    I just cannot believe that she’s dating him. We’re being scammed, right? Like why would she wanna date a guy with all of that Goop baggage? Does she wanna be a stepmom in her early 20s?

    • paranormalgirl says:

      Dating doesn’t always lead to marriage/stepmotherhood. (OK, it did three times in my case, but I think I got it right this time.)

    • Bobbiesue says:

      Also, why is she not his date at Cameron Diaz’s bday party?? Photos of him everywhere with Goop, in the airport, out and about alone but NONE with JLaw. Like, something is not adding up. If Gwyn is perfectly fine with it…dunno

  4. Farah says:

    Oh, you mean he’s not judging his girlfriend for having a sex crime committed against her? How sweet. Men seriously get rewarded for the smallest things.

    • BangersandMash says:

      Thank you!! This ^ a thousand times over.
      Olivier Martinez and Ashton Kutcher get a 21 gun salute for not judging their significant other’s bodies while pregnant. *Eye roll*
      Topped with Cee-lo and all these other dudes… *shaking my head*
      Do you know yesterday I read a story where a guy put his man seed into a woman’s coffee for months because he thought that it would attract her to him. He was attracted to her so he thought, ‘if i mix my man juice in with her coffee, she might start loving me as madly as I love her’ This is a legitimate story. Because obviously, Everyone knows that all a woman needs is a fresh cup of man juice to inspire her to have babies instantaneously with the dude in the corner breathing heavily while pretending to work.

      Just in what the hell is going on with men today?

      I’m officially retiring from guys.

      • lirko says:

        What?? I can’t even…. I mean was this in the news of something? Seriously nauseous now

      • maybeiamcrazy says:

        That story is just weird on so many levels. And I agree. That is something he is supposed to do, not something we should celebrate him for.

      • mia girl says:

        I often *spit out my coffee* from reading funny comments on CB…
        but @B&M, yours made me LITERALLY spit out my coffee.
        So disgusting.

      • Happyhat says:

        Sometimes when I want to ‘fill my hump of hate’ as Bill Hicks said, I go to some of the more dangerous sections of Reddit.

        Reddit, by the way, has some wonderful sections filled with lovely sensible supportive people. And then…oh god. Some parts are awful, full of people like that guy; logic so warped you wonder how they actually get on in life at all. They always talk about how weak women are, but sometimes there’s nothing so fragile as a man’s ego.

    • tifzlan says:


    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      I so agree. What should he do? Say, “you, madam, are no lady!” And walk out on her. How idiotic that in this day and age he’s being praised for supporting her. Just vomit.

  5. Buttock Fatock says:

    I can see her being emotionally traumatized, too. Poor JLaw, such a complete violation.

    In other news, if I were Vanessa Hudgens, I’d be very pissed right now. Remember when she had to APOLOGIZE when this happened to her a few years ago? So sad the way she was treated, and misogynistic. Hope all of those “I’m not a feminist” female stars realize that this is the world we live in.

    • Renee says:

      You are right. She was completely “slut-shamed” and NO ONE sympathized with her. I guess she wasn’t “important enough” because she’s not A List??? It is a complete double standard.

      • We Are All Made of Stars says:

        No, it was because she was a Disney Princess during the dark ages of virginity pledges and JoBros wearing chastity rings. The feeling was very much WHAT SWEEET INNOCENT HER?! She just ruined her career! It was also the beginning of this kind of stuff leaking out, and I think the first person takes the worst hit of judgmentalism.

      • Buttock Fatock says:

        I remember Megan Fox sided with her and was pissed at Disney for making her apologize. I’ll always kinda have a soft spot for Megan because of that.

      • Luciana says:

        @Buttock Fatock, I did not know Megan Fox sided Vanessa. Good for her! It makes me like her more.

    • stellalovejoydiver says:

      Yeah people on this site are like”OMG that’s a violation of privacy”, “sex crime” because it’s JLaw, but they still are shaming Blake Lively for her nude pics.

      • Ava says:

        Blake said the pictures were fake and still to this day denies they are her .. So who is shamed if any one it’s her..
        And why is it that around the same time of Blake’s pictures Scarlet / Kunis pictures were leaked and the police FBI got involved , arrests were made but not with Blake or Hudgens… Maybe because it wasn’t a hacker who leaked there pictures, they got released to the public another way…. either because it wasn’t illegal ( they themselves ) or away that they didn’t want the public to know ( ex lover)
        That’s why people weren’t sympathetic .. She never admitted they were her and never went to the cops.. So ah suspect.

      • Liv says:

        Also, let’s not forget that some do publish their pictures on purpose to get more press. Blake is staging pap pictures, so why not nude ones? I don’t really believe that, but if a star’s privacy whose much more private gets invaded it’s more believable and comprehensible.

    • lucy2 says:

      I think when it was one person here or there, people suspected them of leaking it themselves, especially if they weren’t A-listers. I may have even done so myself, and if so, I wish I could take that back.

    • paranormalgirl says:

      I didn’t shame either of them. I personally don’t want to see ANYONE’S naked pictures in the first place and if their pics were “leaked” or hacked without their consent, it’s a gross violation. And unless I hear otherwise, I will assume they were hacked.

      • wolfpup says:

        I looked at one of them and thought she was very beautiful. I didn’t see the rest of them due to lack of interest in viewing another female body (I have those parts myself!)

        It was a gross violation of her privacy, and most of us would be horrified if something similar were to happen to us. I think that it’s significant and important that everyone is hopping to stop this.

      • wolfpup says:

        I know that many of you did not look at any of her pictures out of respect and solidarity. Bad wolfpup!

    • Pager90 says:

      And Blake lively and ScarJo.. The nasty comments about them were awful.
      I hope people feel as generous in their sympathy towards Blake lively a and ScarJo, because there were many called her every nasty name in the book, when their photos were hacked.

      Blake and ScarJo deserve the same sympathy. I couldn’t believe the nastiness with them.

      Also many said at the time JLAW didn’t do this sort to thing ,take nude photos with her phone, well we see now she does.

      All the ladies during the past few years were violated and all of them deserve sympathy, not just a chosen few, because they are liked. Blake ,ScarJo, Vanessa Hudgens, etc,…all the ladies have been violated.

      • wolfpup says:

        Men seem to be the greatest violators when it comes to viewing naked women, they see it almost as an entitlement. It is almost accepted as a hopeless to cease or control, with the internet and other junk. Women need to control this conversation, without resorting the objectifying of men’s body parts (tit for tat kind of thinking). No one likes to be objectified, including the beautiful Jennifer Lawrence. I doubt her career will suffer much with men at the helm of the media.

  6. Ann says:

    I just have to comment that the article makes me seethe with anger? Why should a man be upset that a grown woman with previous sexual relationships had taken private nude pictures. I am so sick in this last week of this continuing message that women should be ashamed of their bodies and sexuality even within the confines of their private lives. Ugh. Instead they congratulate him, point out what a great guy he is for literally doing something any non sociopath would do. It’s not like she got pulled over for a DUI or in fact did anything wrong that he could “stay by her”. F that. Also, this isn’t a “scandal” for her career. She is the victim of a theft and sex crime. Let’s call a spade a spade. Sorry, needed to vent because the coverage of this crime is making me crazy!!

  7. Kiddo says:

    He would be a total dick to break up with her over a terrible assault on her privacy. This doesn’t make him a hero, it only makes him not a bad guy.

    I thought the leaks about Jen being just like Goop were diabolical and hilarious. It’s like, “You think I suck? Well she’s just like me! BWAHAHAHA”.

    As a sidenote, You are either incredibly talented in finding the worst photos of Chris available, or he is not a dashing handsome gent, ever.

  8. break says:

    She’ll be fine. I agree that the whole thing is awful and that they should prosecute the offenders — and I’m not minimizing the violation — but she’s a strong woman with a huge position of privilege in the world. She’s talented, gorgeous, young and rich, and in the end, a couple of “classy” nude shots — in which she looks friggin’ perfect — aren’t going to mess her up. Short of a couple of nipples, we’ve come very close to seeing that much of her in magazine shots. I worry about some of the other women, though, who had very graphic and sexual photos… more hard core porn than playboy. *those* might send you to the therapist or into hiding 🙁

    • Ann says:

      You commented on what the photos looked like. Does this mean you looked at them? I’m not trying to be pedantic, but looking at the pictures is contributing to the violation of these woman. It’s not just the hacker who posted them, everyone who seeks out and looks at these photos is actively participating in the violation and humiliation of victims of a sex crime. Just something to think about.

      • Lola says:

        I agree that talking about this only makes it worse. And I think saying things like “she’ll be fine” minimizes the crime. Just because somebody moves on from any kind of abuse doesn’t mean it wasn’t a big deal.

      • break says:

        no. i haven’t seen them. i am going by the multiple and consistent descriptions of them by people who have. i have no desire to encourage the hackers, or to see the photos.
        i am not slut shaming her, or saying that it’s not abusive to post these photos against her wishes or will. but i do think there is something to discuss about the kinds of sexualized photos that these women do release (or get paid for) and how that ties into men’s ideas that they own women’s sexuality or that it’s a commodity.
        i find it hard to make this point without being accused of victim blaming. i am not. but as a feminist, i have to say that the kind of objectification that some of these women allow or encourage or exploit IS a big part of the problem, leading to the way that they are viewed, and opening them up to abuse. again, i’m not saying that she’s responsible for this. but there is a very sexists element of hollywood, and many of these actresses do contribute to it, whether it be standing in underwear with her mouth open on the cover of maxim or taking certain roles. and that environment, and portrayal of women is not completely unrelated to the fact that men feel entitled to invade their privacy.
        it’s a complicated situation. that’s all i’m saying.

      • Meow Mix says:

        Like!!!!! Refuse to look:

    • stellalovejoydiver says:

      yeah, but the hacker has more pics and a couple of vids from her which hasn’t leaked yet, but he is threatening to do so. The FBI is onto him.
      I think if it’s just the pics she will be fine, but I think depending on the content of the videos those could be damaging.

      • bella says:

        this write up from Hollywood Life is the first time and i’ve seen reference to one of the women who was hacked being mortified and self aware of the fact that A-list actresses typically don’t have to deal with such scandals.
        is JLaw taking responsibility?
        listen…i think what happened to these women is a disgusting violation.
        if you don’t want to be in this position, don’t take nude pics of yourself on your iPhone or create nudey videos.
        the same rule applies to the Internet – which the iPhone relies on for connectivity…
        if you don’t want it out there for public consumption, don’t put it out there!
        take it, ladies.
        that’s what’s lacking in the world.
        am i the only one who thinks this way?

        They stole her property. All responsibility lay at the feet of the people who hacked her phone and anyone who shared the pictures afterwards.

      • stellalovejoydiver says:

        The blame shouldn’t be on her. Also we shouldn’t even talk about her being responsible, but what a vile human being put such a tremendous effort in getting those pics. This isn’t an issue about lack of safety, but that men have a completly false feeling of entitlement when it comes to the female body.

      • maybeiamcrazy says:

        I wish you were the only one who thinks that way.

      • bella says:

        i see your point.
        let me say that i am not blaming her or any of the women for the violation.
        yet…if that stuff wasn’t out there it couldn’t be hacked.
        keep it private, ladies.
        the internet, where the files live, is not anyone’s private property.
        it’s a public domain.

      • AC says:

        @bella… agree. It seems there is an age divide on this one. People of a certain age (me included) find it difficult to fathom electronically storing photos like that on a device or computer that’s connected in any way to the WWW. Not that racy photos haven’t been around for years, but if they were taken on an old style camera it felt more protected. The 30 and younger set has grown up with the internet and this constant connectivity, plus I think, I more desensitized attitude towards pornographic images.
        I absolutely agree to anyone’s right to take these shots, and share them as they like and keep it private. There is no doubt these women are victim’s and the hackers should be caught and strung up, its disgusting… but there is an element of risk in these activities that exist, for better or worse.
        On a side note, and at the risk of being piled on for “contributing to the crime” some co-workers, yes men, were viewing these photos, I saw a few, and they do go beyond tasteful nudes. Some are very graphic, (Jlaws included) which adds to the violation these women must be feeling. I’m actually surprised the media hasn’t exploited that fact for shock value and click bate.
        In the end, in this day and age, their careers will be just fine. They need to keep their heads up, carry on and let this roll on past, as it always does.

      • bella says:

        yes, good point.
        it must be an age divide on what the true issues are.

    • Pager90 says:

      The., TELEGRAPH , British press says there are 60 nudes just of JLAW in total.
      I haven’t looked at any of them ,don’t want to. The entire invasion of privacy is disgusting.

  9. poppy says:

    don’t care for the placement of the flaming logo.
    looks like a tramp stamp on fire -or worse.

    the hacking won’t hurt her career at all.

  10. poppy says:

  11. db says:

    Fanfic masquerading as “news.” Good grief, the idea that Chris would break up over nude photos — what is this, 1890?

  12. minime says:

    I can only say that i never thought he would be described as having “quirky sense of humor”. For the rest, I think the other commenters said enough. What is he really being praised for??

  13. Joyce says:

    This will 100 percent effect her career. Like all previously hacked celebrities.
    Jennifer is not any different her privacy was violated and I am sure more is coming out.
    It is not slut shaming it is about character. The studio targeted her to young girls. As a parent would you want you daugther to look up to her? See her movies? She is no longer the perfect little princess. And the more people deny the truth the worse it will be.

    • Ann says:

      Joyce, why is she no longer a role model? Because she is a grown woman who has a sexual existence in her private life? Why is that anything to be ashamed of? For that matter, why do we place such a premium on woman’s nude bodies and the idea that showing that body means a woman is no longer a good person worth being looked up to? Wtf? And she has never been a perfect princess. She curses, talks openly about drinking (all things that again a woman should be able to do as an adult!) If anything this is a good opportunity to prepare young girls that their are people, men mostly, who enjoy treating women and their bodies as objects, something that they think they inherently have a right to. And how said young girls can prepare for that. Let’s make it a teaching moment for the young generation rather than continuing to make girls feel ashamed about their bodies. K thanks!

      • Joyce says:

        Yes. Yes. It is normal to take nudes. It is dumb when there is a chance it can be leaked. Look at jennifer’s response. Silence. No courage to come out and say to young girls society will view you different should these images come out.

        Again she is NOT special she has followed the lines of many so why is it now a sex crime when be for it was just a hacking re Hughens. I dont care.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        “No courage to come out and say to young girls society will view you different should these images come out.”

        Yeah, shame on her for not being brave enough to perpetuate sexism, misogyny and an antiquated notion of female sexuality!!! Doesn’t she know that it’s 1922????

    • Ollyholly says:

      I feel sorry for you if you think having a sexual crime committed against someone is a reason not to look up to them.

    • maybeiamcrazy says:

      It won’t effect her career at all. ScarJo is doing fine. Mila Kunis is doing fine. Unfortunately leaked naked pictures have become so common that people forget them after a while. For example I totally forgot that Mila’s pics leaked.

      • Pager90 says:

        The difference is ScarJo was blasted by some and also ScarJo never was put up as the epitome of what young girls should do.
        I remember reading people saying how JLAW didn’t do this sort of thing,.,,…and now here we have it, she does, she nude photo texts her boyfriends ..It’s not a bad thing aim just saying., Im tired of the hypocrisy some can suddenly see how it’s wrong only because now it’s JLAW.

    • lucy2 says:

      I feel like just saying she’s “no longer the perfect little princess” IS slut-shaming. Maybe it wasn’t intended that way, but that’s the implication I get from it.

      The majority of her films are for adults, not kids, and the Hunger Games franchise is marketed more towards teens, right? I saw the first film only and don’t think it was appropriate material for very young kids.
      While this crime is ideal for no one, maybe it’s a good learning opportunity for some of those teen fans, to realize that nothing is 100% secure and there are thieves and terrible people out there who won’t hesitate to exploit others and steal their private property.

      • bella says:

        yes i utilize the convenience of many online options.
        and my credit card has been hacked, twice.
        but using online banking is not the same as using an electronic device that has connectivity to the internet – a public domain – and is not comparable to taking private, nude photos and/or videos on that device.
        the iCloud may not be a public domain per se,, but it is foolish to claim that one does not recognize the risk of putting stuff out there on the web – a public domain with the inherent potential of all things being seen by ALL – that can be snatched.
        sorry…i feel strongly on this.
        yet i find the opinions of others enlightening and i respect everyone’s opinion.

    • bella says:

      joyce, i am with you.
      ann…who the heck is saying women should be ashamed of their bodies; their sexuality?
      so many are missing the point.
      don’t put PERSONAL anything out there that could be stored on a “cloud” or any other PUBLIC domain.
      THAT is the issue.
      please don’t twist it to mean that those of us who are saying these women need to take FULL RESPONSIBILITY for their ‘stuff’ being out there..
      it’s sheer stupidity.
      unfortunate and an invasion, yes, but THEY put it out there.
      step up.
      i think it speaks volumes about JLaw…her silence, her being mortified.
      she should be.
      stupid, amatuer behahavior.
      an A-list actress needs to keep all she’s built under wraps and protected.
      do you nude stuff in person…not on the INTERNET, people.

      • lucy2 says:

        Did they all “put it out there” though? The one woman has said it was photos she and her husband had taken and deleted years ago, and she didn’t know they had been backed up to the cloud. I’m guessing many of them weren’t aware of the process, or thought they’d deleted them.

      • nico says:

        Jennifer should be mortified by her stupid, amateur behavior? Are you serious?

        An adult woman should be embarrassed she enjoys sex. Why? Some people get off by sending sexy pictures to their significant other. That doesn’t make them bad people.

        Even famous people have the right to privacy. The hacking of her phone is not only illegal but disgusting as well.

        Stop with the victim blaming.

      • bella says:

        i’m sorry, but I have to say, yes, they did put it out there.
        we all know that anything that has ever been on the internet has the potential to be out there ad infinitum.
        perhaps these women and most others don’t realize this.
        but it’s a fact and unfortunate especially if some deleted the files after realizing the possible damage that could come.
        this is certainly a case of learning the hard way.

      • bella says:

        that’s not the point.
        please don’t misconstrue what I posted.
        I did not say she or anyone shouldn’t enjoy their sexuality in whatever way they choose.
        where did I say that?
        what I am saying is simple.
        do not put anything private that you want private on any device that has the potential of going public.
        it is the INTERNET.
        a public domain.
        and there are endless predators out there waiting to exploit.
        and they will.

      • CharmmyKitty says:

        Bella, the cloud isn’t public domain. Also, do you not store any of your own private information on any password protected parts of the internet, say a credit card number and your address on Amazon? Do you do any online banking? If so, you’ve made your checking account and routing numbers “available” on the internet. If your credit card got hacked would you think you were foolish for having used it online?

      • wolfpup says:

        That makes perfect sense to me, Bella. Why would a person trust a company – any company – with their private and intimate photos. It is what it is – the internet! I wouldn’t even trust another person with photos or film – look what what happened to Kim K’s sex tape, or Paris Hilton’s. I think that it’s just playing with fire, and then hoping for a good result.

    • Adrien says:

      Huh! Her breakout role was a promiscuous widow.

    • Happyhat says:

      @Joyce – Damn. I’m at a loss for words how completely waspish and puritanical that sounds. My heart goes out to all the girls out there in the world with parents like you, who get harassed in some way and the mother calls them the slut and tells them it was their fault and nothing less than perfect behaviour is acceptable.

      @Bella – I echo other’s sentiments. Putting stuff on your private internet accounts is NOT putting it out there, no matter how much you think it is.

      Ugh…it’s gone all Facebook on here all of a sudden!

      • AC says:

        yeah, those of us who think people should exercise some caution when using the internet are all “facebooky” and not with it hipsters like you… whatever…

    • Anne says:

      ” Little princess” …when has she been portrayed by the media as a Princess … From the first article I read about her 2012 Rolling Stone profile on the cover ” kick ass sweetheart” or Vanity Fair.. your left with the impression, she swears too much, has no modesty when it comes to nudity, isn’t a drinker but will smoke a bit of weed, hates the party hollywood scene but loves to hang out and everyone who works with her loves her oh and she has talent and charisma coming out her pores ….

    • paranormalgirl says:

      She doesn’t HAVE to be a role model. That’s not her job. Her job is to act.

    • Michelle says:

      Gweneth Paltrow was papped full naked front and back while on vacation with Brad Pitt years ago. She won her Oscar after those pics.

      • Pager90 says:

        Many blamed both ScarJo and Blake Lively when it happened to them. Sadly.
        Now people who slammed these previous women can see it’s an invasion when it happens with JLAW.

        It is an invasion, a crime and the guy is a total creep, but some of the hypocrisy now spouted because it happened to JLAW is interesting.

  14. Anna says:

    I disagree, I don’t think humor is a bad way to handle this. They never said they weren’t taking the situation seriously (they clearly are if you read the statement by JLaw’s people), she’s just using humor privately to deal with this. For me smiling is my defense mechanism so it could be the most serious thing and I’ll be smiling. That doesn’t mean that I don’t understand the seriousness of an issue or that I’m trying to take away from what happened it just helps me get through issues….

    Did anyone else hear about Jill Scott’s pictures being leaked a few days ago? It hasn’t really been reported on but Jill said she was hacked and that that’s her in the pics.
    Seth Myers gave a pretty good statement/speech on his show about this whole issue, if you have the chance you should check it out.

  15. QQ says:

    So? Do we give him a Cookie or Make him this year’s recipient of the Ashton Kutcher Considerate Boyfriend of The Year award?? like…what is a new/old/any/famous/non famous boyfriend supposed to do in this occassion?

    • sigh((s)) says:

      Maybe we should send him a box of Oreos courtesy of all the celebitchy ladies. Double stuff, cause he’s just that sweet….

    • lucy2 says:

      “Ashton Kutcher Considerate Boyfriend of The Year award” LOL! What would the trophy look like…

      In all fairness, neither Chris nor Ashton were quoted directly on either story, it’s likely just tabloid mumbo jumbo. But I could picture Ashton saying it though.

  16. stellalovejoydiver says:

    Ugh tabloids, do we really have to applaud him for being a decent human being. Oh he so gracious that he doesn’t break up with her because someone else violated her privacy.
    Also I refuse to believe they are actually a thing before I see pictures.

    • wolfpup says:

      I bet that he is just proud of her, and thinks that he is the lucky guy, and wants to show off her off, and brag.

      I know little about Chris, but men often objectify women (and then women objectify themselves).

  17. TX says:

    I just hope the reporters on the upcoming press tour have the decency to not ask her about it. Or that her PR team shuts that down before it happens.

  18. Hissyfit says:

    I still can’t believe they’re dating. Eww.

    As for the nudes, I highly doubt it’s gonna affect her career, although I think she’s overrated as an actress, she has proven that she can act so she’ll be alright. Some people’s perception about her however have changed. She can throw that America’s sweetheart image out the window which I think is better.

  19. maybeiamcrazy says:

    Isn’t that what he is supposed to do? Anyway, I don’t think hacking is gping to hurt her career. ScarJo got hacked and her career is better than ever. I hope she can keep her humorous attitude towards this and rise above it. Public will stop talking about it a month later but how she handles this on personal level stays with her for a long time.

    And Martin Lawrence coupling still doesn’t make sense to me. Not because I dislike Chris or Jennifer. It is just mindblowing to me that 24 year old Oscar winner would want to date someone with two kids. She could have ANYONE. There are hundreds of musicians without kids.

  20. Jess says:

    Are these two really together? Are their photos of them together? It’s just so random.

    • Luciana says:

      I won’t believe it until I see pictures.

      • stellalovejoydiver says:

        me neither.

      • JLo says:

        Glad I’m not the only one! I’m choosing to be in denial about this relationship until I see photos. Yuck! Hoping it’s a stupid PR stunt to get us talking about JLaw before the next THG film.

    • starrywonder says:

      Yep. I feel like if they are dating it wont last long.

    • Dina says:

      I think at this point is pretty clear they are a thing. Maybe not so serious like boyfriend and girlfriend but they are dating. Just because we didn’t got a picture yet doesn’t mean it isn’t true. Picture is a matter of time (if they continue dating) or wanting to your pics taken (everybody knows you can keep your life private in hollywood. You just have to want). Considering how private the parts involved are this would have been dismissed already if it wasn’t true. Someone close to them leaked this. Hopefully will end shortly because i just can’t really see those two together. It makes no sense.

  21. Luciana says:

    I might be wrong but I don’t think her career will suffer. I will watch Mockingjay this November. Her private life has nothing to do with her work. Plus, they were just naked photos. She wasn’t killing anyone or doing something illegal.

  22. Alex says:

    Geez first off this relationship still sounds completely fake so there’s that. Second I can’t believe that CM or whomever is pushing this relationship story is using a difficult week for JLaw to get his name in the press. As of we should be patting CM on the back. CM get out of here with these fake stories. Ugh this just makes me cringe. JLaw should handle this as she sees for but if her past interviews are any indication, she’s not laughing this off. She already hated the lack of privacy so I doubt she’s all “oh haha” about it since this is even worse. I think she will be fine career wise but personally I can’t see how this won’t affect her going forward. We just may not see it or she may pull back. Who knows I just hope she (and everyone else) pulls through.

  23. Tippy says:

    JLaw seems to be the lightning rod for this scandal. Most of the other women affected are barely mentioned.

    According to a poll by Cosmopolitan, 9 out of every 10 Millennial Woman have taken nude selfies.

    Nude selfies are now the new normal and Jennifer’s career probably won’t suffer providing she’s capable of getting past the embarrassment & outrage and moving on with her life.

  24. Arya Martell says:

    I think J-Law dating Chris Martin will have a more negative effect on her career than these nude photo leaks.

  25. Micki says:

    I do believe that Goop is seething-all those unasked for “blessings”, “happy for”, “he can do worse” are out of line for her. Instead of worse he did spectacularly well-20 years younger, DOUBLE Oscar winner in her peak and with lots of time for further Oscars….

    As for Jennifer’s photos-cyber crime is no joke, the game has changed and I won’t save anything in the cloud that cann bite me in the a$$ at some point. I don’t think there can be any real privacy online.

  26. fd says:

    Honestly, what could be less interesting than a few more nude photos. There are so many out there already, J Law isn’t the first and won’t be the last and this won’t affect her career because, among other reasons, she is already well established as a serious actress , she is not underage, and her image isn’t squeaky clean to begin with. And I would hope in this day and age we would all understand that the hacking was a crime and not something any of the victims should be blamed for because they “put it out there.” What if this were someone’s personal medical information, or their credit card info, would you blame them for “putting it out there”? We are all vulnerable to hacking at this point. On a lighter note, these two make no sense as a couple and I give it six months. I think it’s a rebound relationship for both of them. Nicolas Hoult to Goop the male version seems like a huge downgrade for her but it won’t last.

    • Micki says:

      If your medical record get hacked it won’t be that much your personal mistake because a whole net of data will be hacked and a lot more people than several selebs will be victums.
      However with selfies it’s your personal decision what you put online.

      Do you know that there are seminars for parents!! of toddler on the topic “PLEASE, don’t discuss the colour and texture of the daily poop! DON’T post photos. It can be embarrassing in 10 years time” WHY would you like to discuss poop online?! Do you have to?
      Common sense is not exactly “blame the victum” for me.

  27. Quinn says:

    I couldn’t care less what someone wants to do in her/his personal sex life. However, taking nude photos or making sexual videos leaves you open to having them viewed by people you don’t want to see them- either when your jerk boyfriend decides to show them to his buddies when you break up, or when you get hacked and it’s out there for millions to view. If you don’t care- no worries. If you do- think twice before taking pics and making videos. Pretty easy, actually.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      “think twice before taking pics and making videos. Pretty easy, actually.”

      Think twice before taking pics, making videos, taking photos of your children, emailing people, making online purchases, using online bill pay, online banking or investing, discussing things with your doctor via email, having your doctor send medical information to other doctors via email or network……

      Pretty easy, actually.

      • paranormalgirl says:

        I know, right, Tiffany? And I guess I should stop doing electronic prescriptions for my patients.

      • AC says:

        Your right. So none of us should lock our door at night, because people who break in just shouldn’t, and when we are travelling in a foreign city we should feel free to carry our cash in our back pocket because pick pocketers should change their attitude towards thieving.
        Crime exists. Hackers exist. Therefore the wise thing to do would be to exercise caution. That does not make those of us who feel this way “slut shamers”

      • Skittles4Marshawn says:

        Not to mention doctors, bankers and lawyers have their own electronic storage systems that can be hacked even if their clients are total luddites who refuse to email or online bank.

        @AC: But she did “lock her door”! I’m sure her icloud stash was password protected. It’s like someone picked her lock. Your example makes it pretty clear that there is some confusion here as to what “cloud” storage is.

        I wonder if this is a generational thing — the 9/10 of us millenials (under 30) who have taken nude selfies understand that internet storage can be hacked in a way similar to being burglarized — but much like the older generation still accumulated wealth and possessions in their private homes despite the risk of burglary, we continue to live our lives. And maybe the argument is we should all stop taking digital photos or banking online, but the cat’s out of the bag. If the bling ring found nude pics of Paris Hilton today, they could scan and upload it immediately. The internet is there, no matter what we do. It’s better to continue being sex-positive and reasonable about this stuff while punishing those who break the law. Or at least judging exes who post revenge porn.

    • KatyD says:


      You mean people can hack into your private phone! NO!! REALLY!!!? Thanks Dr. Obvious. Who are you lecturing? Gnomes who live under rocks?

      Love it when people use the misfortune of others to say they should have known better. Way to show empathy.

      By the way, I hope you are never hacked and someone steals your credit card info, social, or your bank records. If that happens, as it does to nearly 40 percent of Americans acc. to CNN, I will be sure to say, you should have known better than to use the darn technology, or internet. Everyone knows you should keep your money in a mattress. It’s so obvious!

      Way to focus on the non-criminal behavior of the victims rather than the criminal scum who actually committed a serious crime.

  28. bettyrose says:

    • Josefa says:

      “you know the rules”? What rules? You mean the law? Because law says this idiot commited a crime. What kind of imbecile would abide to your fictional rules instead of the actual law?

    • bettyrose says:

      The cloud exists and it’s here to stay. Like everything it requires caution, but what’s the point of spending life avoiding the conveniences of technology? As so many articles have pointed out this week, it’s our attitudes that need to change. Let’s prosecute the criminals and waste no time on criticizing perfectly natural human behavior.

      • Josefa says:

        THIS. SO. MUCH.

        The average citizen must not need to modify their behavior to avoid crime. Criminals have to modify their behavior. Having this talk makes me sick.

        These girls were careful and were trusting the system they paid for. If they accidentally sent the pics to someone else, we’d be having another talk. But they were HACKED. Why can’t some people see this!?

      • wolfpup says:

        If the government is able to hack into emails etc., then obviously there is a possibility that others can find methods to do this as well.

  30. fd says:

    I’m sorry I do not see a distinction. She and the other victims did not put their photos on the public internet, but in a supposedly secure storage space, just as we all trust for our banking information and other personal information. It’s not just taking nude photos that puts my personal, sexual information at risk if I date a jerk and we break up. He could also write a blog post about having sex with me or draw nude pictures of me and post them online. Walking down the street puts me at a risk of kidnapping and rape but I do it anyway. Shopping at Target and anywhere else puts my data at risk but I do it anyway. Whether you realize it or not, when you say things like taking nude photos and videos puts you at risk you are making a value judgment about what risks people should and should not take and you are blaming the victim. What you are really saying is that it’s her fault for having taken nude photos but it’s not wrong in your view to use credit cards or store other information in cloud storage because in your view those victims don’t deserve blame because it’s somehow different. It’s only different because of your moral judgment.

    • Micki says:

      @:fd I guess with “distinction” you meant my comment. I think I probably expressed myself poorly. If you apply for credit cards and other payment accounts you are asked a lot of questions and you give away a lot of personal data. Together with your shopping pattern it gives your personal profile. A lot of companies use it to target you with “useful adds”
      However you are not asked about your weight, sexsual preferences and so on “personal” personal data. Whether you like it threesome or SM or you hate spinach or dogs -to announce this to the world is your presonal decision. It is your right too (that’s not the question). But if your credit card is hacked and you can prove it the bank won’t hold you “personally” responsible.It’s their problem.

      With “personal” personal info anyone takes a calculated risk that it can backfire.Think for a second about the other side of the coin- what have we learned about the Brange that they didn’t want us to know?Or Sandra Bullock?
      I personally don’t care who posts what but I feel sorry for Jennifer because so far she was simply very good at her HW game. I don’t think it will affect her career I felt slightly irritated from what I see as not “taking personal responsibility” for your actions.

  31. Happy21 says:


    I didn’t have a clue these two were even dating. WHAT? LOL, have I been under a freakin’ rock.

    I’m so disappointed in myself for not know this.

    (((hangs her head in shame and walks away)))

  32. Josefa says:

    You know, girls… Even though you’re all fuming because a guy is “being praised” (though the only praise here comes from the fanfiction the author quoted) for doing what is just morally required from him, you’ve got to take into consideration all of the comments we’ve read about how idiotic Jen and all these girls were for snapping those pictures. No, I definitely do NOT think Chris deserves an article written about him for simply being right on the head, but for the people out there asking “who would NOT support her in this situation?”, open up any thread about this topic and read the comments. Plenty of people, including several women, sadly, think these girls were asking for it.

      Actually that’s an excellent point.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      I know what you’re getting at Josefa, but that IS the point. It’s a commentary about our society at large that this man is being praised (even in the context of a stupid narrative for a gossip article) for what he SHOULD be doing–behaving like a decent and kind human being and taking a feminist approach to what is a terrible situation for his girlfriend. You’re right that plenty of men would not be so forgiving but as a society, we need to send a message that Chris Martin’s reaction is NORMAL, not something worthy of praise.

      When it comes to men, we need to normalize feminism, not make it seem like it’s an anomaly deserving of accolades.

      In regards to women, as I posted above, we don’t have the equivalent comparison because something like this would never happen to a man. But hypothetically even if the situation were reversed, I doubt anyone would be praising Jennifer for sticking by Chris. Supporting her man would be what everyone would expect from her as a woman.

      Holding men to the same moral standard as we do women—> that’s feminism.

      • Josefa says:

        Look, here’s the way I look at it.

        Chris and Jen are the most talked about couple of the moment (other than Brangie). Of all of the celebs involved in this scandal, Jen is the one people pay most attention to. I’m pretty sure if you open some threads on this topic (in this or other forums) you’ll find comments among the lines of “what do Chris, Gwyneth, Nic Hoult, etc. think of this”? And then this story came up. It’s celeb gossip, after all.

        Chris Martin shouldn’t be given a medal for behaving that way, but reading the article again, I don’t think they are giving him one. I just see it as celeb gossip blogs milking this story the best way they can.

        Here, I’ll give you an example. If you met Chris at a restaurant, asked for a picture and noticed he’s a totally nice and humble man, you’d probably share that story, right? Well, being nice and humble is the expected behavior, for me, and nobody should be praised for it as that is how you’re supposed to be. But given all the douches there are out there, you can appreciate the fact there is one of them actually right on the head.

        I just see this as another really irrelevant post on celeb gossip. If they made up Chris broke up with her, it would’ve seemed too out-of-character on his part. So they actually made up something plausible because, given the circumstances, people will comment on it a lot anyway. And here we are. We might get stories about Nic Hoult and Goop’s take on the matter later.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        “If you met Chris at a restaurant, asked for a picture and noticed he’s a totally nice and humble man, you’d probably share that story, right? Well, being nice and humble is the expected behavior, for me, and nobody should be praised for it as that is how you’re supposed to be.”

        That comparison doesn’t wash for me for two reasons:

        1) I never expect a random stranger to be nice to me. I just don’t. Is it because I live in an inner city where it’s pretty much dog-eat-dog? Maybe. But I expect people to show a basic level of courtesy. In an urban environment, that means not bothering me, not yelling at me or pushing me or being rude to me. Sound like an exaggeration? I urge you to take public transportation in Boston. You’ll very quickly abandon the “I expect basic politeness” approach.

        2) He’s a celebrity. If I met a celeb? Well, I would hope that they would be nice, and yes, if I had a nice encounter with them (*cough*Ben Affleck *cough*) that would likely make me a fan for life but that’s THEIR JOB. That’s part of being a celeb–their fanbase are essentially their clients–they pay the bills.

        That’s very, very different than a man standing by a woman who was wronged. Yes, that should be normal. It shouldn’t be looked at as a freak occurrence. Just my opinion, but how we collectively, as a society, frame incidents like this MATTERS.

        Anyway, your comment was thoughtful and made me think. I still stand by my feelings, but I think you have an excellent point about tabs just making something up, and maybe it is more innocuous than we’re making out to be, but that doesn’t negate the powerful side-conversations that are coming out of it.

        Again, you’re a great commenter, Josefa, you make me think…a good thing for sure 😉

      • Josefa says:

        Write up “metro de santiago hora punta” in google images. One of those heads might be mine. You can make an educated guess on how people are here on that alone.

        Though yeah, my point is I read this as “in case you were wondering, Chris Martin, half of the most random and popular couple of the moment, supports Jen” instead of “Awww look how considerate he is!”. Something like Ashton’s comments on Mila’s body were a different story because they popped out of nowhere. Here, they have the whole hype around them. And since common sense isn’t that common, I appreciate displayals of it.

        And thanks, Kitten. I appreciate your thoughtful and delightfully snarky comments too :).

    • Veronica says:

      That’s kind of the point of the criticism, though. This isn’t behavior that should be unique, it should be the goddamn default for how to be a decent human being. It just goes to show you how misogynistic our society is that it is even brought into question who the victim in this situation was.

  33. Pager90 says:

    I just remember how. Blake Lively and ScarJo were called all sorts of names by some , when they were hacked.

    I feel bad for ALL the ladies involved,who have been hacked over the past few years.

    • Diana B says:

      I don’t blame Jennifer or any of those ladies for what happened to them but the double stardard does bother me. Oh hypocrisy…

      • Pager90 says:

        Exactly , that is what I find interesting at how some who were slammed, blamed and shamed, called any number of names when it happened to them ScarJo, Blake, Vanessa… Are now seeing the light of invasion of Privacy violated because it’s JLAW.

        Hypocrisy. I even read how some said at the time it happened to other actresses , previously, that JLAW didn’t do this she wasn’t the sort, etc.

  34. TW says:

    Unless in a kinder, less opportunistic, less exploitive, less selfish and disrespectful world, taking and saving these pics to iCloud (where you have no further control of them) isn’t smart. Yes, we all have that right, and shouldn’t need to give it another thought. Nothing shameful… just not thinking beyond the iPhone click-and-save.

  35. Jag says:

    Why would she be humiliated? She’s a beautiful woman who has a sexual side, and apparently she took private photos to show that side. I haven’t seen the pictures and refuse to look at them, but assume that they are “sexy photos.” There’s nothing wrong with nudity and nothing wrong with owning your sexuality, if that’s how you choose to be. I’m glad that he’s standing beside her, but he should be!

  36. aquarius64 says:

    If Chris Martin is such a supportive boyfriend, why did it take him a WEEK to come out and defend JLaw’s honor? If he is that into her he would have defended her immediately. This makes me believe JLaw is Martin’s jump-off than GF.

    • Gypsy says:

      @Aquarius64 – I would NOT say that about Jennifer Lawrence, it’s just not something to say.
      Do you have any proof that they were ever together apart from what Tabloids tell you? Have you seen a photo of them being in the same zip code?
      That’s just uncalled for.

      Personally I’m not an easy person to fool because you don’t just tell me stuff and I swallow it, I need proof., not just ninnies gossiping.

      • aquarius64 says:

        The tabloids are reporting there was no overlap in the Lawrence/Martin connection while he’s was still with Paltrow. They came together after they separated. The same with her and Nick Hoult.

        My comment is for Martin to give a full-throated defense of a woman he supposedly cares for in this situation early on. Any less calls it into question. You’re reacting as if you’re afraid your idol is going to be tagged a homewrecker in the mist of this scandal.

    • Nina says:

      Do u really think this story is true? Jus a tabloid story to stir up interest. Why the heck would he care about thebpics? If anything he’s prob either pissed at the hacker, or secretly glad that he’s got such a hot girlfriend who’s the talk of the town.

      • Pager90 says:

        I think it’s true, mainly because E! Had a detailed meeting between them and Chris /Gwen publicist who is very powerful, has a some links to E! news.

  37. please says:

    God he is so gross

  38. Gypsy says:

    “A source tells what Chris thinks about the “disturbing” hack. Chris and Jen have fallen for each other — and fast. Despite this scandal, we’ve learned that Chris has NO plans to leave Jen’s side.”

    Someone needs to tell Hollywoodlie that Chris Martin is NOW in the Hamptons with his ex wife and kids, I have photographic proof.

    • Alex says:

      I know right? Saw that photo yesterday. The fact that we have YET to see them together in a photo but we see both of them separately in pictures just further makes this seem very PR for CM.

    • Courtney says:

      Precisely! If they were actually dating, he would have been there for her. And all of the “support” he’s giving her isn’t actually coming from his mouth. They didn’t put a direct quote from him in that article, plus he spent the weekend with his ex and kids in New York. She’s in Hollywood still trying to sort this horrible situation out. I’ve called BS on these dating rumors ever since they started. There’s no real proof of them together. It’s all girlie fanfiction. As for the nude photo debacle, I feel horrible that it happened to these women. Yes, they are sexual beings in their private lives, but they didn’t deserve to have their sexuality displayed in such a humiliating manner. I really hope Jennifer gets through this. I’ve heard from several people that the supposed videos were fake, but I hope the FBI catches the scumbag who did this. Jennifer is an awesome, amazing person, and I don’t think any less of her just because of a couple of naked pictures. A few sexy snapshots are not the only thing that defines her as a person.

  39. St says:

    Do they really date? I still can’t believe it. It’s just wrong. He is too old for her. It looks weird.
    If they do date then I hope they will separate and she will find someone close to her age.

  40. TOPgirl says:

    The thought of them together grosses me out. I can’t see what she sees in this man. I’m not saying that she’s so great that she can do better but what I’m saying is that they do not go together. It just doesn’t fit!

  41. Observer says:

    Are they even divorced yet? What is the etiquette there? Dating someone who is not yet divorced but separated….

  42. jojo says:

    Blame hollywood. They are building these young girls up as perfect little princesses. this makes them more profitable. What was the first reports from jlaw on this? ‘My career will be ruined. ” Hollywood puts these girls on a pedestal early, then lets the world spend years trying to knock them off it.

    We’ll see how this plays out. But if i had to bet, we are going to see the ‘Oprah Circuit Routine’ very soon. Some of these women will be put on the couch with Oprah, cry some tears and get even more fans. and her career will skyrocket even more.

    Personally, these pics have no bearing on what i think or don’t think about these actresses. If they are in good movies, I pay to watch them. If not, I’ll pass. If anything, it does not make me respect Jlaw any less as I like Jlaw. But it does make me respect actresses like Meryll Streep and Angelina Jolie even more for being women who, regardless of their flaws, stand up and don’t try to present themselves as people they are not to con money/worship out of me/fans.

    edit: My comment on Meryll and Jolie is not that they didnt take nude pictures (jolie has done some strange stuff), but more of the fact that they are strong intelligent women who stand up and say ‘this is who I am, if you don’t like it, then tough..’ Rather than standing up and saying ‘i’m perfect, worship me’. I suspect is because they are older and never really had Hollywood/Disney/etc controlling their image at a young age.

  43. LaurieH says:

    I am in the minority here. I like this couple. I don’t think it will last, but I do think Jennifer Lawrence is just what Chris Martin needs to cleanse the Goop off of himself. As the photo hackings – for the hackers, this has nothing to do with the celebrities. They could care less about seeing naked pictures of celebrities. For the hackers, this is sport – to see if they can break in to the proverbial cyber Fort Knox. Hacking iCloud is no different to them than hacking into the Pentagon. It’s a quest to see if they can do it and breach security. The only way they have of proving their success to the public is to publicly display what they gained access to. It is insidious, but it will never stop. The real danger is in the vultures who sweep in after the fact to feed on the open prey…the ones who will take the photos and sell them. The ones who will take the data and sell them to others who will steal people’ identities and drain their bank accounts. But for the hackers themselves…it’s sport. Like climbing Mt. Everest. They do it because it’s there.

    You are no JLaw

    probably supporting all over her face

  46. Anath Pariah says:

    I’m sorry, but I’m rolling my eyes at this moral outrage at this point.

    I sent out intimate pictures before, and someone uploaded them onto a public message board. Where were all the keyboard warriors when this happened to me?

    Oh, that’s right. Shaming my body parts. And now seven years later, the same people on that same website are OUTRAGED this happened to JENNIFER LAWRENCE.

    I’m sorry I don’t care as much as I should. For seven years, I endured people’s harsh comments. Where was my support?

    • wolfpup says:

      Anath, I think you really brought it home. Seven years, oh my god!

      With so many films and “goddesses” everywhere, showing off their body parts, I’m just kinda bored with women’s bodies – we are all more or less the same. I’m so sorry that you had to endure this.

    • I Choose Me says:

      The people who shamed you are assholes. I’m sorry you had to go through that. People are outraged and talking about this because everything is framed as more important, more salacious, more newsworthy when it’s a celebrity. Esp., one well liked and admired. But it’s important to have this conversation so that when this does happen again (and it will because people are just awful human beings) they will not be shamed and they will know that they are not alone.

      • Anath Pariah says:

        Thanks! And I also totally agree.

        I absolutely do not condemn these girls at all for what they’ve had to go through. I guess I reserve my ire (obviously for the person who leaked these) for the general public.

    • AlwaysConfused says:

      Amen! For work, I have to pay attention to all “online privacy” news. Most days, the Google Alert emails on the topic are light. But, the news is usually something genuinely important, like, say, “Oh, the government just abolished any online privacy rights via the passing of X bill.” Of course I’m exaggerating a tad, but just a tad (because remember, the word “privacy” doesn’t appear in the Constitution. (But I digress…)

      But THEN, a celebrity everyone likes had a photo leaked and it’s the effing end of the world! Also, the OUTRAGE over seeing a woman naked still makes us this crazy? Jesus people, we still have a long, long way to go.

      I wish Jennifer Lawrence would’ve responded, “who cares! you saw my naked body. Big whoop! Next. Now, let me tell you about my next project…..”

  47. Jo says:

    My first response to this article? Oh, is that what her hair looks like now? Growing it out, then.

  48. Sandy123 says:

    Interesting that many women’s photos were hacked and published but the focus is on her so much more than the others. Do they not deserve a little more public sympathy as well? What is it about this girl that makes people feel so badly for her but basically forget the others? I feel bad for all the women involved.

    • Pager90 says:

      I personally believe she has Top PR People behind her who hit the ground running when this happened, and entrenched themselves in meetings getting out sympathetic articles to EVERY big media outlet across the world. Her PR people are powerful, the top of the food chain in the industry and they know exactly how to play this for JLAW.

      Another aspect is I think many of her fans who previously said JLAW was not the sort to be sending Nude Text Photos to boyfriends or out over the phone, WHEN this happened to other ladies in the industry in the past( and blamed and shamed them) now have egg on their faces and the truth is JLAW is like the many other actresses of her generation and uses social media to sexually connect with her boyfriend(s) or partners or friends. Nothing wrong with that, but some of the same who shamed many of the other actresses when this happened before are suddenly seeing the privacy violation only because it happened to JLAW ,someone they like and had put on a pedestal as being above sending nude photos on her phone. Some who are now screaming were shaming others actresses in the past when the same thing happened to them.

      I too feel bad for ALL the women involved and the ones this happened to in the past couple of years too.

      • Grassroots says:

        Then her PR team might face a nasty surprise. The bits and pieces of rumors I’ve gathered say something truly damaging to her is in the stash, waiting to be unleashed….Hmm…

    • A. Key says:

      I definitely think the other women will suffer way more than Lawrence, because they’re not as famous and powerful in the celeb business. Jennifer will be just fine.

  49. Helo says:

    @Pager90: LOL!….First off….this “relationship” is faker than a Hollywood backdrop. PR for both CM and GP. As for your comment thread about how you believe that the rumors are true about Jennifer Lawrence and CM because of E! reporting it so it must be true????. Do you believe in Bigfoot too?…the Loch Ness Monster…LOL!.

    Jennifer Lawrence never promoted herself as a princess nor do her fans think of her that way. It’s why Lawrence is receiving so much support and will get through this, continue to make great films, win Oscars, etc.,..

  50. A. Key says:

    I think she’s lucky this happened after her Oscar win. She wouldn’t have won one if this had occurred during the campaign. Or if it had happened before she did Hunger Games. They’d have fired her from that franchise for sure in the beginning. But now she’s possibly untouchable. She’d damage her career if SHE herself did something stupid or reckless (a la that Reese Witherspoon do you know who I am drunk driving cop incident).

  51. Helo says:

    The biggest myth in the entertainment industry is that nude photos can damage a career. Nope, not true. It is also worth noting that considering that these photos were stolen, privacy violated, there is a lot of empathy (and rightfully so).

    So, even if these photos had been stolen prior to THG’s, the empathy, support would still have been strong and the business of making the film with Jennifer Lawrence starring would have gone on regardless. Ditto regarding the Oscar win….nudity in stolen private photos would not change a thing.

  52. Hello there. Simply needed to inquire a quick issue.
    I’m arranging my very own blog site as well as wish to know where you still have ones design? Ended up being this totally free?
    Or was the idea settled? I am unable to often locate anything as effective as
    this place, and so with luck , you’ll be able to let me learn. Many thanks.
    PS, my own i’m sorry. Language is not the 1st terminology.
