After stolen nude personal photos of herself were leaked online by hackers, Jennifer Lawrence is breaking her silence about the scandal.

The Hunger Games starlet covers Vanity Fair and basically says sorry that she's not sorry for her private naked pics.

"I started to write an apology, but I don't have anything to say I'm sorry for. I was in a loving, healthy, great relationship for four years," she explains to the magazine. "It was long distance, and either your boyfriend is going to look at porn or he's going to look at you."

That's a valid point, and it's not like she ever intended for someone other than Nicholas Hoult, her beau at the time, to see them.

The 26-year-old Oscar winner calls the invasion of her privacy was a crime. "It is not a scandal. It is a sex crime," she says. "It is a sexual violation. It's disgusting. The law needs to be changed, and we need to change. That's why these Web sites are responsible. 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. I just can't imagine being that detached from humanity. I can't imagine being that thoughtless and careless and so empty inside."

J. Law also says if you looked at her photos, you're completely in the wrong. "Anybody who looked at those pictures, you're perpetuating a sexual offense. You should cower with shame," she explains.

Clearly, she was extremely upset about her pics leaking, but it seems like she's moving on now. "Time does heal, you know," Jen muses. "I'm not crying about it anymore. I can't be angry anymore. I can't have my happiness rest on these people being caught, because they might not be. I need to just find my own peace."

Well said, girl.
