Hollywood actress Jennifer Lawrence, who had a hard time last year after her nude pictures were leaked online, is in news again for her nude photoshot with a snake which will hit the stands next month.

Jennifer Lawrence posed nude for photographer Patrick Demarchelier for March 2015 issue of Vanity Fair as a homage to 1981 Richard Avedon Vogue portrait of Nastassja Kinski, according to the Magazine

In the photo taken in July last year, the 24-year-old actress is seen laying on her belly naked and a giant Colombian red-tailed boa constrictor crawling on top.

"When it came time for the snake to take his star turn, there was frightfully little between him and Jennifer Lawrence—only a long metal rod with a hook at the end," reported the magazine.

"Jennifer has the perfect combination of strength, sexuality, and humor, and, above all, tomboy to pull this off," says V.F. fashion and style director of the photoshot Jessica Diehl.

It may recalled that nude photos of the Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence and several other celebrities like Ariana Grande, Victoria Justice and Kate Upton were leaked online in August last year after hackers got them from their mobile phones.

Jennifer Lawrence's spokesperson had to make a statement that it is a "flagrant violation of privacy. The authorities have been contacted and will prosecute anyone who posts the stolen photos of Jennifer Lawrence."

The actress latter told Vanity Fair that the photo leak was a crime.

"Just because I'm a public figure, just because I'm an actress, it does not mean that I asked for this," she told Vanity Fair magazine. "It does not mean that it comes with the territory. It's my body, and it should be my choice, and the fact that it is not my choice is absolutely disgusting. I can't believe that we even live in that kind of world."

"It is not a scandal. It is a sex crime. It is a sexual violation. It's disgusting. The law needs to be changed, and we need to change," she added.
