Hacker leaks naked photos of Jennifer Lawrence as over 100 celebrities fall victim to cyber attack

HUNGER Games star Jennifer Lawrence is among over a hundred female celebrities who have been hacked, resulting in naked pictures of them appearing online.

The photos of the Silver Linings Playbook star were leaked online on Sunday after someone reportedly hacked her iCloud account.

Posed in lingerie in some and completely naked in others, the photos of the star have been posted all over social media accounts.

The Oscar-winning actress's publicist has warned that anyone publishing the photographs will be prosecuted.

Her representative slammed the hacking of her iCloud account as "a flagrant violation of privacy".

A master list of 100 celebrtities who reportedly hacked was posted online last night.

The list of female celebs that have also been hacked is reported to include other big names including Rihanna, Kirsten Dunst and Kim Kardashian.

In a statement her spokesperson continued:

"The authorities have been contacted and will prosecute anyone who posts the stolen photos of Jennifer Lawrence." Someone claiming to be responsible for the leak is now promising to release a sex tape of the Hunger Games actress in return for "paypal donations".

Jennifer Lawrence has been praised in the past for her open criticisms of Hollywood's focus on bodies.

She slammed the industry after she revealed that she was asked to lose weight for the Hunger Games and refused.

Apple has yet to release a statement on the potential hack of their cloud.

The Hollywood starlet was not the only victim in the latest leak of private photos.

Disney stars Arianna Grande and Victoria Justice have both moved to dismiss naked photos of themselves that appeared last night as fake.

Mary E Winstead was also subject to a privacy breach and she took to Twitter to retaliate.

"To those of you looking at photos I took with my husband years ago in the privacy of our home, hope you feel great about yourselves," the A Good Day to Die Hard actress posted on her account.
