How golf helped Jennifer Lawrence break the news of her nude photographs to her dad

October 08, 2014

You know the story by now. A bunch of celebrities had private photos hacked and released on the Internet, and Jennifer Lawrence was one of them.

Obviously, the 24-year-old actress is very upset. In an interview with "Vanity Fair," Lawrence said, "It is not a scandal. It is a sex crime. It is a sexual violation. It's disgusting."


We agree with Lawrence. Yet while not to make light of the offense, we couldn't help but notice her recollection of the excruciatingly awkward situation of having to tell her father about it.

"Fortunately, he was playing golf, so he was in a good mood," she said.

So there you have it. Apparently, we can add "easing the pain of finding out your daughter has naked photos all over the Internet" to the list of golf's benefits.
