Actresses Fall Victim To Hackers
Aug. 31, 2014
(Undated) -- Hackers are apparently to blame for releasing private photos of a number of celebrities. According to TMZ.com, nude or nearly nude photos appearing to be of stars such as Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton, Victoria Justice, Ariana Grande, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and many others have hit the internet. A rep for Jennifer Lawrence seemed to confirm the authenticity of the photos, calling their release a "flagrant violation of privacy." The spokesperson also promised to prosecute anyone who puts up the "stolen photos." Mary Elizabeth Winstead says the pictures of her were ones that were "deleted long ago," adding that their recovery must have taken a "creepy effort" on behalf of the hacker. Meantime, Victoria Justice says the purported photos of her are fake.
