Jennifer Lawrence and some of the big Hollywood stars whose naked photos were plastered on the internet yesterday have responded to the massive hack, some directly, while some via their reps.
A rep for Lawrence, while confirming that the naked photos are indeed real, said in a statement, ‘This is a flagrant violation of privacy. The authorities have been contacted and will prosecute anyone who posts the stolen photos of Jennifer Lawrence.’
A rep for Kate Upton also confirmed the naked photos, saying, ‘This is obviously an outrageous violation of our client Kate Upton’s privacy. We intend to pursue anyone disseminating or duplicating these illegally obtained images to the fullest extent possible.’
Mary Elizabeth Winstead, also a victim of the leak, tweeted on Sunday, ‘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.’
Ariana Grande and Victoria Justice however declared their alleged naked photos are fake. Tweeting on Sunday, Grande said, ‘hell nah…. praying for the people who believed that was me lmaoo… my petite ass is much cuter than that.’
‘These so called nudes of me are FAKE people. Let me nip this in the bud right now. *pun intended*,’ tweeted Justice.
As ENTmania! reported, the internet erupted after naked photos of Jennifer Lawrence hit Twitter on Sunday afternoon … and it quickly became clear that she was not the only victim after naked photos of Ariana Grande, Kate Upton and Victoria Justice also showed up online.
Others whose photos leaked include Kirsten Dunst, Hope Solo, Krysten Ritter, Yvonne Strahovski, and Teresa Palmer.
It was later established that a cloud storage security breach had enabled the hacker to get into his victims’ phones. The hacker also claims to have scores of naked pics of other celebs in his possession … and released a ‘master list’ that includes the likes of Kim Kardashian, Selena Gomez, Lea Michele, Cara Delevingne, Keke Palmer, Vanessa Hudgens and a host of others.
