Rest assured, Jennifer Lawrence has an ally in Natalie Dormer, both onscreen and off.

The Game of Thrones badass, who's currently logging big-screen face time as District rebellion documentarian Cressida inThe Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 1, recently offered up her take on the nude photo leak that ensnared J.Law and other celebs this fall.

"What Jen went through recently was just horrific," Dormer says in Nylon's December 2014/Jan 2015 double issue.  "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."

And we have a feeling that, no matter what you ask Dormer—who's quietly engaged to director Anthony Byrne and does not have her own social media accounts—she wouldn't pussyfoot around the subject.

"I wish I had Margaery's knack for opportunistically manipulating a situation on the spot, but I don't," the 32-year-old English actress, who also modeled a number of cozy yet fierce winter styles for Nylon, said, referring to her GoT character. (Meanwhile, she said, she took a "Which Game of Thrones character are you?" quiz and got Arya Stark.) "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."

Dormer did recently tell the Daily Beast that the HBO series could "ramp it up" in the gender equality department, so we'll agree with "straightforward." And yet she plays the master manipulator so well...

"I must have a variation on resting bitch face, like, maybe I have resting manipulative face, through no fault of my own," she told Nylon.

Plus, Dormer added, "don't overestimate the occasional laziness and lack of imagination that can be found in this industry that continuously recasts you in roles you've already played."

Something different that she diddo this time around was shave half of her head for the role of Cressida. She enjoyed being out of her comfort zone, but "there were one too many polar vortexes in New York for this kind of haircut."

"I don't know if I'm a daredevil exactly," Dormer said, "but I do enjoy a good challenge. It's the only way you grow." Asked if there's anything she won't do for a role, she said, "I don't know. I will let you know when someone walks me up to the line."
