Jennifer Lawrence was trending on Twitter last night after nude photos of her were leaked online, along with 100 other celebrities.
A hacker obtained old cell phone photographs of different stars through iCloud and published them online. He/she also said they were accepting Paypal donations for a video which apparently showed J-Law carryring out a sex act.
While other stars who were targeted have denied the authenticity of the photos (Disney star Victoria Justice tweeted: “These so called nudes of me are FAKE people. Let me nip this in the bud right now. *pun intended*”), Jennifer’s representatives have confirmed that the photos are real:
“This is a flagrant violation of privacy. The authorities have been contacted and will prosecute anyone who posts the stolen photos of Jennifer Lawrence.”
Other celebrities who were victims of the hacking include Jennifer Lopez, Ariana Grande, Cat Deeley, Kim Kardashian, Michelle Keegan, Rihanna, Selena Gomez, Kelly Brook and Final Desitnation actress Mary Elizabeth Winstead.
Winstead took to Twitter to comment on the leaked photos:
Actor Seth Rogen also showed his distaste for the hacker in a couple of tweets:
Whoever is behind the act of invasion must have A LOT of time on their hands, as they targeted so many celebrities. Check out the list of victims:
We can only imagine how awful these women must feel knowing private photos are circulating the web – we hope they get whoever is to blame. Though, we're glad Anna Kendrick got the opportunity to post this fantastic reply to her brothers text!
