Celebrity gossip blogger lashes out at the “Hunger Games” actress but then apologizes for initially posting her hacked nude photos
Perez Hilton has fired back at Jennifer Lawrence‘s Vanity Fair comments in which she took the gossip blogger to task for publishing hacked nude photos of her.
“I’m not trying to be Oprah. I am just a better version of me than I was 10 years ago,” Hilton said in a video posted on his website Monday. “Do I still have work to do? Can I still be even better? Fuck yeah, but I am not that person in the past. And if you’re trying to keep me in the prison that is the past, then fuck you!”
Hilton then said, “So, actually this video is for Jennifer Lawrence, to say ‘fuck you’! And I’m going to get in trouble for that, but I don’t give a shit.”
As TheWrap previously reported, the Oscar-winning actress scolded Hilton in the November issue of Vanity Fair for posting — and then removing — nude photos of her that emerged in August as part of the massive celebrity photo hack. Kate Upton, Kaley Cuoco and Meagan Good were also targeted.
“He took it down because people got pissed, and that’s the only reason why,” Lawrence said. “And then I had to watch his apology. And what he basically said was ‘I just didn’t think about it’ … ‘I just didn’t think about it’ is not an excuse. That is the exact issue itself.”
But Hilton, whose real name is Mario Lavandeira, wasn’t happy with her characterization of his previous apology.
“She mentions how she was forced to watch the video I made right after her naked photos surfaced online. In that video, I apologized to her sincerely from my heart,” he said in Monday’s video. “And I did so more than once. And I was tempted to apologize to her again, but you know what … No. Fuck that. Life isn’t always what you want. And you don’t always get what you ask for,” Hilton said.
“That video that I made and me explaining my thought process was real, it was sincere, and it wasn’t some bullshit made up excuse.”
He wasn’t finished. After dropping those aforementioned f-bombs, Hilton then called Lawrence out for bringing up his past. And he also strangely brought up actor Robert Downey Jr.
“When you think about
But eventually Hilton changed his tune and said sorry.
“You were extremely hurt. I contributed to that. I genuinely am sorry,” he said. “I hope that you can look inside my brain and see that I truly, truly did not pre-meditatively, purposely decide to hurt you. And that’s all that I have to say, I will not be making any more comments on this.”
“Or maybe I will.”
