Jennifer Lawrence sat down with Bill Whitaker for a very candid interview on 60 Minutes. The Oscar-winning actress opened up about her nude photo hack and Harvey Weinstein, who produced Silver Linings Playbook.

When asked if Weinstein had ever been inappropriate with her, Lawrence said no but added, “What he did is criminal and deplorable. And when it came out and I heard about it, I wanted to kill him. The way that he destroyed so many women’s lives. I want to see him in jail.”

Lawrence may have avoided being assaulted by Weinstein, but she was violated when her private nude photos were hacked and spread around the internet in 2014. The violation affected both her private and professional life, according to Lawrence. “I read this script that I’m dying to do, and the one thing that’s getting in my way is nudity,” she said. “I realized there’s a difference between consent and not.”
