A spokesperson for the actress issued a statement on Monday after photos reportedly showing the Oscar winning actress in various stages of undress surfaced on the internet.
In an email to BuzzFeed, Jennifer Lawrence’s publicist said, “This is a flagrant violation of privacy. The authorities have been contacted and will prosecute anyone who posts the stolen photos of Jennifer Lawrence.”
Other female celebrities whose photos were also supposedly leaked have promptly denied that the images were ‘fake’.
Victoria Justice tweeted to fans to discard the leaked photos saying, “These so called nudes of me are FAKE people. Let me nip this in the bud right now. *pun intended*”.
Arianna Grande’s publicist has also denied that the images of the actress were authentic.
