Jennifer Lawrence ‘horrified’ over nude photo leak

Jennifer Lawrence is supposedly feeling “horrified” over the impact of her leaked nude photos.
The Hunger Games star, as well as Kirsten Dunst, model Kate Upton and dozens of others were the target of what’s been dubbed “one of the biggest celebrity hacking scandals in recent memory”, according to Variety.
And it’s now claimed Jennifer is reeling over how the naked images of herself floating around the internet might harm her career.
“Jen is horrified over this leak and knows that this will possibly affect her upcoming roles,” a source told Hollywood Life.
The 24-year-old American actress has already won an Academy Award and several other major trophies for her work in films like Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle.
But despite her accolades, apparently Jennifer’s embarrassment is transforming into deep fear about how she is viewed among her peers in Hollywood.
“She knows that A-list stars don’t have this type of controversy attached to them and is very much horrified over the whole situation,” the insider said.
It's thought the cell phone photographs were stolen after someone hacked into iCloud and then published them on a thread for 4chan, a website that allows people to post images on bulletin boards.
Jennifer’s spokesperson slammed the person or persons responsible in a statement issued Variety on Sunday, calling the offence a “flagrant violation of privacy”.
“The authorities have been contacted and will prosecute anyone who posts the stolen photos of Jennifer Lawrence,” her representative stated.
Lea Michele, Victoria Justice, Krysten Ritter, Yvonne Strahovski, Bar Refaeli and Mary Elizabeth Winstead are also reportedly affected by the breach, with the latter taking to Twitter to blast those taking advantage.
“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,” she wrote.
