Speaking on the Hollywood Reporter's Awards Chatter podcast, Jennifer said:

When the hacking thing happened, it was so unbelievably violating that you can't even put it into words. I think that I'm still actually processing it. When I first found out it was happening, my security reached out to me. It was happening minute to minute. It was almost like a ransom situation where they were releasing new ones [photos] every hour or so.

Jennifer went on to say that she feels uncomfortable that the images still remain easily accessible.

She said:

I feel like I got gang-banged by the fucking planet. Like, there's not one person in the world that is not capable of seeing these intimate photos of me. You can just be at a barbecue and somebody can just pull them up on their phone. That was a really impossible thing to process.

She also said she cried when a member of the public told her she was a good role model for young women after the hack, because she "couldn't believe somebody still felt that way after what happened."
