Anne Hathaway has reportedly become the latest in a string of female stars to have naked photos stolen and posted online this year.
It’s thought that nude photos – alleged to be of Anne – found there way online this week after being stolen from the actress by a hacker.
Anne and her team haven’t yet commented, so the authenticity of the images cannot be verified, though India Today reported that the snaps were posted online by a hacker earlier this week and have already been making the rounds across social media.
It’s not yet clear exactly how the nude photos were obtained or where from, though a number of big name celebrities have already fallen victim to hackers this year.
Amanda Seyfried was one of the worst hit after very explicit photos of her in the nude hit the web. Amanda responded and threatened any sites who posted the images with legal action.
Other female stars alleged to have been caught in the hack – dubbed ‘The Fappening 2.0’ due to the sheer volume of leaks – include Sienna Miller, Kelly Roherbach, Alison Brie, Suki Waterhouse, Rosario Dawson, Audrina Patridge, Whitney Port, and UFC stars Raquel Pennington, Tecia Torres, Jessamyn Duke and Angela Magana.
The most recent hackings also saw Modern Family actress Sarah Hyland have private nude photos leak just last month.
It’s not clear if all the hackings were carried out by the same hacker – or group of hackers – though there’s no doubting that celebrities are going to want to increase their cyber security to protect their privacy.
