Nick Hoult Breaks His Silence Over Jennifer Lawrence’s Nude Photos
It’s been over a month since the biggest celebrity nude picture scandal of all time, and a matter of days since Jennifer Lawrence spoke her first words on the subject to the public. Now, her ex-boyfriend, Nicholas Hoult, who was the actual intended recipient of the naked photos, is breaking his silence as well.
In preparation for the release of his upcoming film, Young Ones, the 24-year-old stopped by Good Day New York. When the host asked about the topic in question, he responded, “It’s shocking that things like that happen in the world.”
He adds, “It’s a shame.”
This was obviously a far shorter statement than the Oscar-winning actress’, “It is not a scandal. It is a sex crime. It is a sexual violation. It’s disgusting. The law needs to be changed, and we need to change. That’s why these websites 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.”
