UPDATE: Bummer, y’all. Scarlett’s lawyers have spoken and requested that we — and the rest of the internet — take down the photos. But luckily, Scarlett has inspired an internet meme: #ScarlettJohanssoning. Check out these folks trying out ScarJo’s patented pose here.
Back in March, it was revealed that Scarlett Johansson—along with about 50 other famous folks—had nude photos stolen from her iPhone by an especially ambitious hacker. Authorities said they had caught said person, and that the motivation for grabbing the photos (he or she also found those ones of Vanessa Hudgens) was the thrill rather than money. But now, the photos have surfaced online. We’d love to think that ScoJo was too smart to snap images of herself in the buff since these things always get out, but alas not. This one, at least, is nicely arty. Let’s just hope it wasn’t intended for Sean Penn. [ONTD]
James Middleton, aka Kate Middleton‘s 24-year-old brother, has earned the reputation for being the wild child of the Middleton clan thanks to the fact that he dropped out of college, frequents London nightclubs, and has been spotted in drag. Just as we were developing low-grade crushes on him, our flames of desire have been fanned by the fact that, oh, dozens of photos of him in various states of undress are making their way across the internet. And some of them answer Jessica’s vital question: is his butt as nice as Pippa’s?
NSFW-ish images after the jump. Keep reading »
A nude photo of Elizabeth Taylor at age 24 has been released by a “private collector.” Yes, even Liz Taylor had a naked pic! Elizabeth reportedly had her friend Roddy McDowall take the photograph — in which she’s crouched naked on a shaggy carpet — as an engagement gift for her third husband Michael Todd. After Hubby #3 died, a heartbroken Liz reportedly gave the naked pic to her assistant/makeup artist, Penny Taylor. Somehow it found its way to “private collector” (of what, nude pics?) Jim Shaudis, who released the photo after Liz died on March 23. While it’s not exactly classy to bust out nude pics, I guess it’s somewhat more acceptable that the collector waited until her death. And let’s be honest: doesn’t girlfriend look damn fine? [Daily Mail UK] Keep reading »
Celebrities from Rihanna to Vanessa Hudgens to Jamie Foxx have learned the hard way that if you’re a public figure and you take a photo of yourself sans clothing that is meant for private eyes, it’ll probably end up on the internet being gawked at over coffee breaks. Let politicians heed this warning, too. Yesterday, a Republican Congressman from New York, Christopher Lee, resigned over a shirtless cellphone photo that ended up on Gawker. Apparently, the Congressdude is fond of trolling Craigslist for women to date, even though he’s married. In mid-January, he responded to a CL ad with the headline, “Will someone prove to me not all CL men look like toads?” He sent the image above—which shows that, for politician, he sure works out a lot—and a message that read, “Hope I’m not a toad. : ) i’m a very fit fun classy guy.” Keep reading »
What’s better than the real Carla Bruni, dressed head-to-toe in Dior, as the first lady of France? Carla Bruni, 16 by 24-feet tall, dressed head-to-toe in nothing, as the subject of a 1994 nude portrait by American photographer Pamela Hansen.
Called “Carla Bruni in Bed,” the photo is, not surprisingly, an image of Bruni, well, in bed. But we’re not talking about the sort of “in bed” that you and I practice, complete with rumpled pajamas, day-old makeup and quite possibly a dirty sock static-clinging to the sheets. We’re talking mid-’90s-supermodel-dating-Mick-Jagger-at-the-time “in bed.” It’s totally different. And totally hot. Keep reading »
