Furious Jennifer Garner says hacking is 'violent abuse'

2015-01-02 13:35

Los Angeles - Jennifer Garner has slammed the hacking of female celebrities' photographs as "violent abuse".

The Men, Women & Children actress admitted that seeing stars such as Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton and Anna Kendrick have their intimate pictures stolen from their iCloud accounts and posted online earlier this year made her so angry, she wanted to "hurt somebody".

She said: "It's an invasion. It's violent. It's a violent abuse of women. They're not just doing it to any woman. These women know when they're walking down the streets that so many people have seen them in this way. It just makes me want to hurt somebody."

The 42-year-old actress undertook parenting classes before having kids Violet, nine, Seraphina, five, and Samuel, two, with husband Ben Affleck but admits she doesn't always get things right.

She told the new issue of Loaded magazine: "Sometimes as a parent it's when you're trying the hardest. It's when you're trying to do the most on their behalf that you're fucking up the most."

And Jennifer admitted she related to her Men, Women & Children character, overprotective mother Patricia who wants to keep her daughter away from the perils of the internet, very much.

She said: "I totally connected to the role. She made perfect sense to me. I don't judge her at all.

"Patricia makes a lot of sense. It is scary out there. What I understand about her on a cellular level is that we would all do anything to keep our kids safe."
