Leave Jennifer alone, Weaver tells hackers

Sigourney Weaver has called on hackers to leave Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence alone.

She said there was "no escape" from social media and it was something actors needed to deal with.

The 65-year-old told a Sunday magazine: "It is something actors need to figure out how to combat and it doesn't serve anyone to have privacy invaded. She [Lawrence] is brilliant. Leave her alone."

Lawrence was one of a number of stars who saw intimate photos of themselves posted on forum site 4chan last August after Apple's iCloud service was compromised.

Weaver also revealed that she took inspiration from Vanessa Redgrave who had been successful in an industry full of "little blonde, blue-eyed" stars.

"It was better that I was a bit freaky, as it took an unconventional director to think of me, and that kept me from humdrum movies," she said.
