“Jennifer Lawrence’s scathing reaction – angry, offended and unapologetic – is the righteous end to an evolution of celebrity nude ‘scandal’ responses. Where once female stars were expected to hang their head in shame for having the temerity to pose nude for themselves or lovers, now they can issue a barely-shrouded ‘fuck you’ to a public that so gleefully consumed their humiliation.”
— The Jennifer Lawrence naked photo response is the end of the ‘shamed starlet’, writes Jessica Valenti
“Don’t get too high and mighty, ladies. Don’t step out of line. Don’t do anything to upset or disappoint men who feel entitled to your time, bodies, affection or attention. Your bared body can always be used as a weapon against you. You bared body can always be used to shame and humiliate you. Your bared body is at once desired and loathed.”

If sport is violence by other means, then reality TV is cruelty, envy, spite and group hate … by exactly the same means. The Hunger Games is an exciting dystopian fantasy-thriller on this theme, taking place in a world of circuses but no bread. It is directed by Gary Ross, and based on the 2008 young-adult bestseller by Suzanne Collins, who co-wrote the screenplay with Ross.
