Jennifer Lawrence And Other Celebrities Target Of Massive Nude Photo Scandal

It’s ironic that Jennifer Lawrence gave Shailene Woodley advice not to make a sex tape, but her own nude photos [and possible videos] have been leaked to the whole Internet this morning. It’s also sad, considering Jennifer’s one of the few A-list celebrities that seems to genuinely cherish her privacy and private life.

Several nude photos of Jennifer were leaked this morning on 4Chan, with the hacker promising several more photos and videos on the way. Jennifer was not the only target of the hacker, who also released photos and videos of major A-list and B-list celebrities, including [allegedly] Lea Michele, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Ariana Grande, Victoria Justice, and Kate Upton – just to name a few.

Obviously, this isn’t the first time that celebrity nudes have leaked online, but it certainly may be the biggest.

The hacker reportedly got the photos off iCloud thanks to a leak, even though many of these actresses’ photos had been deleted a long time ago. However, the leak enabled the hacker to access the deleted photos, because apparently, the Internet never deletes ANYTHING permanently. It’s unfortunate for those actresses, who took those photos in a private setting, probably meant for their lovers, but the privacy they were promised by their phones and accounts came undone thanks to Apple’s lack of control over its Cloud.

Jennifer’s lawyers have been the most aggressive in getting these photos shut down, and the hacker’s probably headed for several years of jail time. Authorities have reportedly detailed him already, and it was apparently not very difficult for them to do so – he was boasting about his hacking skills on 4Chan, and even posted an email for users to send their Bitcoins to.

    Thats too bad for her, she’s always seemed like such a great and real celeb. At the same time though, people tend to make way too big of a deal of naked pictures- whatever, it’s a body. I’ve got one, you do too, and so does anyone else reading this…now lets move on and be adults.

  4. Tessa Smith says

    How horrible for her. She should not have ever allowed them to be taken in the first place though if she did not want them to ever have a chance of leaking. I agree with Samantha though – who cares, its just a naked body.

  5. Sara says

    This is what happens when people use their skills for evil.
    An invasion of privacy. Totally despicable.

    If you linked to them you are as guilty of invading her privacy as the hacker. Why give him the additional link. Why make it one step easier for people to find them. This is disgraceful. How would you like people all over the internet linking to photos of you or your daughter naked. Private photos taken between partners have no business being abused this way.

    Samantha Angell – yes we all have bodies but it is a person’s choice as to whether the whole world should see it. No one should take that choice away. It’s more than just a naked photo it’s an invasion of privacy, it’s theft and if you don’t see that I feel for you.

    When this happens to ‘celebrities’ I always have to ask myself… did they mean for it to happen… media attention.. I mean seriously.. it has happened before.. Oops my dirty video was stolen.. let me make a million $. I don’t know.. I also have to ask myself.. Why? If this was not done intentionally by the one that posed nude… Why even pose nude. and take a digital photo that is uploaded on to your computer.. which in these days .. nothing is private…

  11. Lavende & Lemonade says

    Thats terrible. I’d rather not even know that they were out there…adding more fire to the drama..

  12. Michelle de Guzman says

    You know I remember a few years back when a sex tape was stolen from Pam Anderson and Tommy Lee. The lesson then as now is don’t take a picture you don’t want to share with the world.

  13. Catherine S says

    It is a shame people have to do things like this. We should all just respect one another.

  14. Rebecca Swenor says

    Here is my opinion on this subject we all are hearing about from everyone and everywhere. Just don’t take the pictures if you don’t want them seen. Thanks for sharing.

    It’s scary to think what’s out there to find for anyone willing to take he time and look. Thankfully I don’t have any bad or nude photos out there (not that anyone would look) because I always worried that they could pop up when I least expected it. So sad for Jennifer Lawrence.

    Apple iCloud’s security should be put into question. It should explain how hacking is possible.

  25. Taylor says

    While yes I feel badly for these celebrities a large part of me questions why they take these photos in the first place. They know they are in the spotlight and that greedy people will do anything for money- so why put yourself in a situation to get hacked?

  26. FamiGami says

    It is inaccurate to say the photos were deleted. They were not. That’s the point of icloud – it is a backup. The photos were deleted from their phones, not from their accounts. This is a lesson in many things, not the least of which is that when you delete something on a cloud service, you are not deleting it – you’re deleting a COPY of it. Secondly, if these people valued their privacy, they wouldn’t have taken these photos to begin with or be celebrities. Third, there was no hack of icloud but a sophisticated ring of people that managed to guess these celebrities’ apparently very weak passwords. Those are the big lessons to learn from this folks so do the appropriate thing and secure your stuff!

    Wow! That’s crazy. =( I guess they shouldn’t take pictures nude to begin with?

  34. Mary Ann says

    I don’t understand why people take pictures of themselves to begin with, if they don’t want others to see them. Just a thought.

  35. jane says

    It’s a shame people feel the need to invade the privacy of others. Whether that be online, through photos, or whatever. If you’re in someone else’s business, you’ve crossed a line, Period.

    It’s a shame that some people thrive on making life miserable for others. The bigger issue is that, given our access today, it will be wise to avoid taking such photos.
