The iCloud hack of 2014 was perhaps the biggest security breach in all of Hollywood, as it leaked countless naked photos and videos of actresses from their personal devices.

Dubbed by the internet as “The Fappening,”  the scandal featured lewd images from the likes of Kate Upton, Amber Heard and Kirsten Dunst, among others, but it seemed like “Hunger Games” star Jennifer Lawrence was targeted the most, with countless nude images of her circulating online.

Although she has remained relatively quiet about the incident, the 27-year-old “J-Law” recently recalled the harrowing nightmare.

“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,” she said during The Hollywood Reporter’s Awards Chatter podcast.

“And, I don’t know, I feel like I got gang-banged by the f**king 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 added.

Lawrence earlier admitted that the images were intended for her then-boyfriend Nicholas Hoult.

Meanwhile, two culprits were sentenced for “The Fappening,” including Ryan Collins, who was sentenced to 18 months in prison in March 2016, and Edward Majerczyk, who was sentenced to nine months last January.

Despite the convictions, Lawrence opted not to file a suit of her own against the perpetrators.

“None of that was gonna really bring me peace, none of that was gonna bring my nude body back to me and Nic, the person that they were intended for,” she said.

“It wasn’t gonna bring any of that back. So I wasn’t interested in suing everybody; I was just interested in healing.”  Khristian Ibarrola /ra
