Nude photos of Jennifer Lawrence appeared on a 4chan board Sunday following a massive hack; the actress’ publicist confirmed the images are of her. “This is a flagrant violation of privacy. The authorities have been contacted and will prosecute anyone who posts the stolen photos of Jennifer Lawrence,” her publicist told TMZ. Lawrence’s naked pics appeared online along with other alleged nude photos of female celebrities who were hacked, including Ariana Grande, Victoria Justice, Kate Upton, Hope Solo, Kirsten Dunst, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Krysten Ritter, Yvonne Strahovski, and Teresa Palmer.
Posting on Twitter, Winstead confirmed the photos of her were real and taken by her husband: ”Knowing those photos were deleted long ago, I can only imagine the creepy effort that went into this. Feeling for everyone who got hacked. To those of you looking at photos I took with my husband years ago in the privacy of our home, hope you feel great about yourselves.” Other celebs denied the pics, with Victoria Justice tweeting, ”These so called nudes of me are FAKE people. Let me nip this in the bud right now. *pun intended*” Ariana Grande’s publicist confirmed to BuzzFeed her alleged nude pics were “completely fake.” [TMZ; BuzzFeed]
