Emma Watson Is Seeking Legal Action Over Hacked Nude Photos

15 March 2017

However, a spokesperson for the 26-year-old denied that those naked photos were of Watson. Watson has brought lawyers in to deal with the intrusion, according to E!

The "Harry Potter" star was also threatened on the controversial 4Chan message board in 2014 with a leak of nude images after delivering a speech on gender equality.

Today, more alleged intimate photos of actresses are being circulated online, and this time Emma Watson and Amanda Seyfried are among the targets.

Details of the action were not specified and a spokesman for Watson wasn't saying much. "They are not nude photographs", her publicist told the BBC. "Lawyers have been instructed and we are not commenting further".

Emma Watson arrives at the world premiere of "Beauty and the Beast" at the El Capitan Theatre on Thursday, March 2, 2017, in Los Angeles. You might remember that she hit back at the dumb criticism of her Vanity Fair photoshoot in which she posed nearly topless - some said she couldn't do that and be a feminist.

Back in 2014, Emma was threatened with a leak of private images but she later revealed she knew it was a hoax because the pictures described did not exist.

In September previous year, it was reported that Watson had brought in her legal team after website Celeb Jihad published other private photos of her.

"We continue to see both celebrities and victims from all walks of life suffer the consequences of this crime and strongly encourage users of Internet-connected devices to strengthen passwords and to be skeptical when replying to emails asking for personal information", he said.

That dispute coincided with a public appearance by the star to promote the UN's HeForShe campaign, during which she hailed the possibility of the U.S. electing its first female President.

These leaked images have started to circulate exactly one year following the arrest of Ryan Collins (as noted by Gizmodo), the hacker behind the monumental celebrity iCloud leaks that were referred to as "the Fappening" by those responsible for publishing them.
