Natalie Dormer: I've got JLaw's back

Natalie Dormer has spoken up for Jennifer Lawrence following her nude photo leak.

The 32-year-old actress has joined the cast of The Hunger Games as Cressida for the final two Mockingjay instalments, where she's formed a close bond with main star Jennifer Lawrence.

At the end of August Jennifer, 24, was one of a number of high-profile stars who had their iCloud accounts hacked and naked pictures posted on a photo-sharing website. She has slammed those responsible and Natalie also has her back.

"What Jen went through recently was just horrific," she told Nylon magazine. "And I don't think there's any level of fame that can justify that kind of invasion into privacy, not to mention laws being broken. I mean, people just need to get a grip if they think that's even halfway acceptable."

As well as appearing on the big screen Natalie is famed for appearing in Game of Thrones. Although her profile is rising, not much is known about her personal life as she's fiercely protective of it. She is engaged to Anthony Byrne but shuns social media as she doesn't want to reveal too much - that doesn't stop her enjoying a gossip with friends though.

"I like hearing about their lives and their problems. It puts things into perspective," she explained.

Natalie plays Margaery Tyrell in fantasy TV show Game of Thrones and loves the character. She can be devious at times, but the actress insists that is no mad thing.

"I wish I had Margaery's knack for opportunistically manipulating a situation on the spot, but I don't," she said.

"I suppose that I'm a bit of a tomboy, and I probably say things out loud that I shouldn't. I'm quite a straightforward person, not underhanded like my character.

"I must have a variation on resting b***h face, like, maybe I have resting manipulative face, through no fault of my own."

The star prides herself on taking on roles completely, explaining that as yet she's not come across something which she wouldn't do.
