List of celebrities whose nude photos were leaked and their responses

Jennifer Lawrence

Today will go down in history whenever the topic of celebrity privacy and the internet comes up as more than a hundred alleged nude photos of celebrities were leaked online including some of the biggest stars on the planet, like Jennifer Lawrence, Ariana Grande, Lea Michele, Kate Upton and Kirsten Dunst.

The pictures, which are of course all women (even though Dave Franco does allegedly make a boxer cameo with a nude Alison Brie in one photo and MLB player Justin Verlander appears nude in some pictures with girlfriend Kate Upton), were first mentioned on 4chan some time over the last 72 hours as a user offered to exchange previously unseen nude photos of celebrities in exchange for bitcoins.

As you might imagine, no one took the offer that seriously. But earlier today the user posted more than a hundred photos and videos of various female celebrities not only in various states of undress, but also engaged in sexual acts.

Some of the images, including those of singer and actress Victoria Justice, appear to be fake. “These so called nudes of me are FAKE people,” Victoria tweeted earlier today. “Let me nip this in the bud right now. *pun intended*” (Online “researchers” have discovered older photos of Victoria that prove some of her images were indeed altered.) (UPDATE – Other online “researchers” at Reddit have uncovered a good deal of evidence that suggest the photos are authentic.)

However, other stars’ reactions seem to indicate that a number of the photos are indeed real, including Jennifer Lawrence! “This is a flagrant violation of privacy,” Lawrence’s rep said to TMZ in a statement about the leaked photos. “The authorities have been contacted and will prosecute anyone who posts the stolen photos of Jennifer Lawrence.”

Actress Mary Elizabeth Winstead also seemed to confirm the authenticity of the leaked photos on Twitter:

She later assured fans this was a hack from someone unknown to those involved:

UPDATE – Glee actress Becca Tobin appears to have shared a surprisingly light-hearted reaction to her leaked photos:

Ariana Grande was also rather light-hearted with her response, laughing off the notion that the photos allegedly of her are actually her:

McKayla Maroney joins the list of celebrities who say the photos of her are fake:

Kate Upton’s legal rep confirmed the authenticity of her photos, which also include some with her boyfriend, Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander. “This is obviously an outrageous violation of our client Kate Upton’s privacy,” attorney Lawrence Shire said in a statement. “We intend to pursue anyone disseminating or duplicating these illegally obtained images to the fullest extent possible.”

UPDATE – Kirsten Dunst and Melissa Benoist (who had some of the most graphic images leaked) have joined the list of celebrities involved in the photo leak to respond on Twitter:

Yvonne Strahovski shared this message on Twitter and instagram:

It is with great sadness and disappointment that I address this hacking issue. To my fellow actresses whose privacy has been invaded – my heart goes out to you. I’m so disappointed that there are people in the world who feel the need to commit these criminal acts. Some of these pictures are fake, my own included. Regardless – I ask you all – do not share the links. Don’t even look at the photos. Just let people have the privacy they deserve. Integrity is sacred.

It is believed that if the photos are real, they must have somehow been obtained through the celebrities’ iCloud accounts, though it is not known how exactly.

And it should be pointed out that the 4chan user who initially leaked the photos apparently has a lot more! He posted a censored screen cap of his desktop in which you can see numerous other, previously unleaked images. You can also see two video files that look to be Jennifer Lawrence.

UPDATE – The 4chan user that is leaking the photos (Yes, there are more) said in a post on the site that he isn’t the hacker, he merely compiled the collection over time via purchases and other means. That would explain why some of the photos appear to be fake, and others real.
