The Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence is facing controversy again due to more leaks of her alleged nude photos, which were posted on the site 4chan last Saturday. Along with Lawrence, other celebrities also supposedly have photos in this round of leaks, including Kim Kardashian, Gabrielle Union and Vanessa Hudgens.
The collection of photos reportedly hacked from celebrity iCloud accounts includes more than 60 photos of Lawrence in various states of undress. Some of the photos were confirmed by a representative as being of her, but other photos have not been confirmed to be of the Oscar-winning actress. Several photos are said to show Lawrence trying on clothes and wearing sexy lingerie, and most have been described as explicit. One GIF showed a woman resembling Lawrence performing a sexual act on a man.

HollywoodLife.com reported that one of the photos showed Lawrence in her make-up as the character of Mystique in the X-Men film franchise, which has caused fans to question whether the star is in danger of being booted from the movie franchise. “Jennifer’s role in future X-Men films will not be affected at all over the photo leak. People close to the film are aware things like this happen and it shouldn’t do anything to her role because she never did it on purpose,” said an insider of the film series.
How am I supposed to appreciate any of Jennifer Lawrence's films knowing now that she has nipples? #disappointed

The source also referred to X-Men director Bryan Singer’s past scandals, which did not get him in trouble with his film projects. The source implied that it wouldn’t look good if the franchise spared Singer and vilified Lawrence.
Singer was accused twice this year of sexual assault. Charges against him in April were later dropped by the accuser in August . Another time was in May, a man based in London claimed he was assaulted in 2006 when Singer was in town for Superman Returns.
