Jennifer Lawrence says no to using any social media … ever

Jennifer Lawrence insists she will never use social media because the internet has "scorned her so badly".

The 'Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1' star was recently the victim of internet hackers who posted hundreds of nude pictures of her onto the web, and while the blonde beauty "respects" that Twitter is a popular form of social networking, she also wouldn't get an account because she doesn't understand it.

"If you ever see a Facebook, Instagram or Twitter that says it's me, it most certainly is not,” she said.

"The internet has scorned me so bad that I feel it's like that girl in high school, it's like, 'You want to talk about me, yeah I'll do that.'

"[Twitter is] like this weird enigma that people talk about which I think is fine, I respect that, but no I'll never get a Twitter."

The 24-year-old star also admitted she wouldn't ever join any social networking sites because she isn't great at using technology.

"I will never get Twitter. I'm not very good on phones or technology, I cannot really keep up with emails so the idea of Twitter is so unthinkable to me, I don't really understand what it is," she added speaking on Radio 1.

Jennifer previously hit out at the hackers who stole dozens of private images from her iCloud account, insisting they had committed a sex crime against her.

"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,” she said.

"Just because I'm a public figure, just because I'm an actress, does not mean that I asked for this.

"It does not mean that it comes with the territory. It's my body, and it should be my choice, and the fact that it is not my choice is absolutely disgusting. I can't believe that we even live in that kind of world."
