Jennifer Lawrence Private Nude Photos Hacked From the Cloud and Posted, Actress’ Rep Vows to ProsecuteBy: Pam Wright - September 1, 2014
Jennifer Lawrence is having none of this, and no one can blame her. After the Oscar-winning actress fell victim to a nude photo leak, the American Hustle star vowed to prosecute anyone who leaks the photos.
Lawrence‘s rep confirmed the leak Sunday.
“This is a flagrant violation of privacy,” Lawrence’s spokesperson said in a statement, as reported by Variety. “The authorities have been contacted and will prosecute anyone who posts the stolen photos of Jennifer Lawrence.”
The photos, which were hacked from the cloud, were posted on the /b/ thread on 4chan and have not been taken down despite Lawrence’s spokesperson’s statement.
Since then, others have posted the photos on social media, but they are being removed from sites like Twitter.
Lawrence is just one of several A-list actresses who were victims of a phone-hacking breach.
According to Buzzfeed, the 24-year-old Hunger Games actress is just one of many A-listers who has been hacked. Others on the posted list include singer Ariana Grande, Nickelodeon star Victoria Justice, supermodel Kate Upton, and actress Kirsten Dunst.
Mary Elizabeth Winstead of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Killer fame appeared to acknowledge photos posted of her are authentic.
Ariana Grande’s reps told Billboard that pictures of the Bang Bang singer were fake, while actress Victoria Justice tweeted the same about alleged shots of herself.
The site claims to have photos of other celebrities including Lea Michele, Selena Gomez, newlywed Gabrielle Union, pregnant Hayden Panettiere, former Disney star Hilary Duff, Big Bang Theory‘s Kaley Cuoco, Mary-Kate Olsen, among others.
