Nude photos of Christina Hendricks and Olivia Munn – the latest celebrities to be the subjects of a “nude photos on the net” scam both seem to have had their phones hacked.
Christina Hendricks is insisting that not all of the photos being shown are of her although it seems hard to deny that at least some of the photos are genuine.
There are 4 photos of Christina which are alleged to have been stolen from her phone. 3 of the photos appear to be genuine but the one that looks to be fake is of a rather splendidly endowed women pulling down the top of a creamy white dress to show her breasts.
Christina has denied the topless photo is of her via a statement from her agent who did confirm that her phone had been hacked and photos were stolen. They said: “The proper authorities have been contacted in hopes of rectifying this situation. The topless image is fake and not an image of Christina,”
Olivia Munn, who will appear later this summer in Steven Soderbergh’s “Magic Mike”, was also involved in a similar incident when genuine photos of her were posted online in a bid to legitimise other nude photos posted alongside.
Olivia did not wait for her management to respond but took to Twitter herself and wittily said that if you did hack into her phone you would just find photos of a chunky baby and a cat and posted her mobile photos alongside to prove it.
The pair are the latest to suffer similar “nude photo” scandal on the net and they join Miley Cyrus, Scarlett Johansson, Blake Lively and Vanessa Hudgens who have also had to deny that naked leaked photos appearing online were of them. The photos from mobiles are perhaps a message to all celebs to make sure that they do not have Bluetooth enabled on their phones when they wander about!
