Hackers Attack Hollywood With More Nude Snaps
Rihanna was even more exposed than usual
Johnny Depp’s fiancée Amber, 28, has become the latest victim of the ongoing Hollywood hacking scandal after more than 50 topless photos of the actress surfaced online. Last week, previously unseen steamy shots of some of our favourite celebrities, including recent brides Kim Kardashian and Gabrielle Union, pregnant Hayden Panettiere and Vanessa Hudgens, were posted on the internet, and the cyber criminals behind the leak continued to cause upset when a new pair of explicit snaps of Rihanna was shared on 4chan.org. Hours later, a haul of saucy pictures featuring Heard in various states of undress was also uploaded to the website. According to TMZ.com, the series of photos also includes one in which the blonde beauty can be seen holding up a sign directed at Depp, referring to the actor as “Tonto”, the character he played in the 2013 movie remake of The Lone Ranger. The leak comes three weeks after similar saucy snaps were stolen from cloud storage devices belonging to the likes of Jennifer Lawrence, Kirsten Dunst and Kate Upton.
Emma’s Equality Backlash
Harry Potter actress Emma Watson has been left shaken by the creepy hackers after being told that she’ll be the next person to be unveiled online, seemingly in retaliation for delivering a hard-hitting speech about feminism and sexual equality at the UN headquarters in New York last weekend. The grown-up child star has been warned personal information about her will be among the next slew of photos leaked to the media. A page titled “Emma Watson You Are Next” has been set up on the same 4chan.org website, and the page features the creepy message: “the biggest to come thus far”, with a turning wheel suggesting that the new pictures will soon be released.
Hollywood Fights Back!
Some stars are speaking out against the naked truth.
Not everybody in Tinseltown is running scared of the hackers – some celebs are making a stand! Ariana Grande has slammed the cyber criminals for the latest spate of nude photographs leaked online and the 21-year-old singer hit out at the faceless people behind the latest release of topless pictures. The Problem hitmaker, who described the incident as "invasive", maintains the images that were leaked of her earlier this month are fakes and swore she has never taken any X-rated photos of herself. She said: "Those aren't me. It's funny though. That's not my room, that's not my cat, that's not my belly button ring, that's not my hair, that’s not my profile."
Jessica Chastain has also slammed hackers, insisting: "It's such a violation. To me they're not leaked photos, they're stolen photos." One Direction singer Liam Payne also claimed a naked photograph of him was also fake, stating: "Wow, as if people think that weird photo going around is actually me. I think I'd rather tweet a full frontal than have people look at that."
The Amazing Spider-Man actor Andrew Garfield swung into action to defend his fellow thespians by labelling the offenders "misogynistic" and "revolting". The 31-year-old said: "It's disgusting. There's a guy now taking these pictures and putting them up in an art gallery. What f***ing right does he have to do that? It's absolutely revolting."
Just how are the victims coping with the embarrassment of being overexposed?
Some of them cried, others screamed, but some have reacted surprisingly to the nude picture scandal. Kaley Cuoco Sweeting bravely warned her family before they happened to hear about it on the grapevine. The star of The Big Bang Theory decided to "get even" with the hacker and posted a series of pixellated beach shots online, pretending she was often nude or topless. Cuoco Sweeting, who is married to tennis ace Ryan Sweeting, admits she was shocked when she first realised the shots of her online were real, and chose to address the scandal in an email to her loved ones. "I said, 'Just so you know, this happened: PS, I'm not pregnant; PPS, I’m not getting a divorce'."
Kirsten Dunst coped with the scandal by finding some humour among the distress, tweeting: "Thank you, iCloud" along with an emoticon of a slice of pizza and a pile of excrement, slamming Apple over their iCloud storage system. Speaking to Eonline.com, Dunst revealed she's been using comedy to help move on from the embarrassing leak, saying: "I try to have a sense of humour about a really unfortunate situation. The FBI is investigating, so they’re handling it right now."
