Jennifer Lawrence's Nude Photo Leak Is More Disturbing Than We Thought

jennifer lawrence

Sooo, this is pretty disturbing. Numerous actresses, including Jennifer Lawrence, have had nude photos of themselves leaked. The photos, according to Lawrence's rep at least, are the real deal, and as one could imagine, it's incredibly embarrassing and violating for Lawrence. "This is a flagrant violation of privacy," Lawrence's camp told Us Weekly. "The authorities have been contacted and will prosecute anyone who posts the stolen photos of Jennifer Lawrence."

Other actresses who are among the mass nude photo leak, which happened via their iClouds being hacked into, include Ariana Grande, Victoria Justice, Kirsten Dunst, Kate Upton, and actress Mary Elizabeth Winstead. The photos of the celebrities were reportedly posted on the image sharing site 4chan, and, naturally, have since been shared on Twitter.

The first response of many people (after Googling "Jennifer Lawrence nude photos," of course) will likely be, "You shouldn't take naked photos of yourself -- especially if you're famous! Surely, you're going to get caught!" True, true. But the particularly disturbing thing in this case is the fact that, with many of the celebrities, the pictures had been deleted a long time ago. Mary Elizabeth Winstead said of her phone being hacked, "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."

When you think about it that way -- people took photos of themselves for their significant others years ago and then deleted them and they're still being leaked -- it's seriously disturbing. And it kind of makes it seem like anything anyone's ever done on their phone or computer is at-risk.

Hopefully, authorities will find the person or people responsible for what's being deemed "one of the biggest celebrity hacking scandals in history," and punish them accordingly. But, sadly for Lawrence and these other women, the damage will have already been done.

What do you think of this?

Sorry this happened to her, but now I have more "lessons" for my own girls. I'm constantly talking to them about taking pics of yourself. And trying to get them to understand - once its out there, its out there. Deleting something does not mean its gone. In this day and age, nothing is safe once its put into the digital world.

This is the reason why zero half dressed/nude photos of me exist. Once you send it to the cloud or even the intended recipient you lose control of what happens to the image. If you want to take nudies I recommend an old fashioned Polaroid, and lock the image up!

I feel terrible for everyone who was hacked I hope they bring the sicko who did this down. To clarify they never sent the pictures out to anyone iCloud was hacked

Someone can hack a celebrity's phone and gain access to nude photos, but no one knows what happened to Loris Lerner's emails?  Ah, America.

While it is embarrassing to have your nude pics leaked, how exactly are their lives being ruined by this action?

BGarcel- that was ignorant. Even if their lives aren't ruined, this is a form of sexual assault. It's also cyber bullying, hacking (HELLO! A FUCKING FEDERAL OFFENSE), and simply humiliating.

I have many, many pictures of myself naked. Every one of them is in my husband's phone, as well as mine. We don't have cloud or anything, but if he distributed them out of anger, I would divorce him. It is MY body, and only I can decide who gets to see it.

This is no different than a peeping tom, or a stalker. It's creepy and can leave a person feeling dirty, and unsafe in their own home.

Their clouds are being hacked, it doesn't matter if it was deleted from their device. It's not that complicated.

@mammajigglypuff ... A lot of us weren't even alive back then. Furthermore, you really want to condemn someone for photos they took on their own phones for a husband or significant other AND THEN DELETED?! So much for keeping things spicy...
