A second wave of leaked nude photos of female celebrities now includes pictures of actress Amber Heard. She is one on a list of female celebrities including Gabrielle Union, Rihanna and Kim Kardashian whose private accounts were reportedly hacked in order to steal and leak photos of them in various states of undress. Heard’s and other photos were posted on Sunday and showed up on sites such as 4chan and Reddit.
The nude photo leaks are thought to be a blow to Heard, who has been known to safeguard her privacy, especially when it pertains to her relationship with fiancé, actor Johnny Depp. The couple has given few details about their lives off-camera to the public. In an interview with Collider in September 2011, she stressed her need to keep her personal details away from prying eyes. “I've always been a private person. I've always valued my private life,” she said.

However, Heard’s privacy has been breached by the recent nude photo leaks, which includes more than 50 photos of her in compromising situations. One photo of Heard shows her undressed and holding up a sign for Depp, according to TMZ. The sign addresses Depp as Tonto, his character from The Lone Ranger. Another photo shows her participating in what appears to be a threesome, while yet another shows her smoking from a bong, reported The New York Daily News.
Unlike the photos from the first nude photo leak, which included pictures of Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton, Heard’s photos and those of other celebrities were reportedly soon deleted from sites due to new regulations on posting copyrighted images. The FBI said on September 1, after the first leak, that it was “addressing the matter” of the hacking allegations.
Heard’s name was reportedly among a master list of hacking victims that was posted at the time of the first leak. Other celebrities who were victimized by hackers include Kate Bosworth, Hayden Panetierre, Lake Bell, Avril Lavigne, Leelee Sobieski and Aubrey Plaza.
