Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton And More Respond To Nude Photo Hack

Reps for Jennifer Lawrence and more address the alleged hack.

On Sunday, August 31, a user of the website 4chan posted a list of more than 100 female stars who had supposedly been hacked in what is now being called the biggest celebrity hacking scandal in history. Throughout the remainder of the day, alleged photos of A-listers such as Kate Upton, Ariana Grande, Kirsten Dunst and — perhaps most famously — Jennifer Lawrence hit the site in droves, supposedly via an iCloud security leak that allowed a hacker to access their phones.

While the authenticity of many of the photos is yet to be addressed, some reps for the stars have already spoken out about their clients’ violated privacy, thus confirming the seriousness of this hack.

“This is a flagrant violation of privacy,” a spokesperson for Lawrence told The Hollywood Reporter. “The authorities have been contacted and will prosecute anyone who posts the stolen photos of Jennifer Lawrence.”

“This is obviously an outrageous violation of our client Kate Upton’s privacy,” Upton’s lawyer Lawrence Shire said in a statement. “We intend to pursue anyone disseminating or duplicating these illegally obtained images to the fullest extent possible.”

Meanwhile, a spokesman for Grande told Buzzfeed that the leaked photos of his client are fake — and some stars, like Mary Elizabeth Winstead, “Glee”‘s Becca Tobin, Olympic gymnast McKayla Maroney, and Victoria Justice, took to Twitter to address the hack:

Winstead said the photos had long since been deleted from her phone.
