Private pictures of actress Emma Watson have reportedly been leaked online alongside photos of another unclothed woman. The unknown woman appears to be actress, Amanda Seyfried, who is pictured in a bathtub with her face obscured. Watson has denied that she is the one depicted in the pictures.
The Harry Potter star, 26, admits that photos were stolen from a swimsuit fitting and leaked on the web after her computer is believed to have been hacked. Watson announced that she has tasked lawyers to deal with the issue.
Web users said hacked pictures of Watson and Seyfried had been spotted on ‘the dark web’, an area of the web that allow users to surf with anonymity.
A representative for Watson confirmed some pictures of her had been stolen, saying they were from a clothes fitting two years ago. But the spokesman insisted no nude pictures were taken, stating: ‘Photos from a clothes fitting Emma had with a stylist a couple of years ago have been stolen. ‘They are not nude photographs. Lawyers have been instructed and we are not commenting further.’ h/t dailymail
The leak comes after sharp criticism directed at Watson by feminists who claim she betrayed them by posing for a risque Vanity Fair cover shoot.
Watson has a net worth of about $60 million. Watson made her big-screen debut in 2001’s box-office smash Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, bringing to life Hermione Granger, friend to the famous protagonist Harry Potter of J.K. Rowling’s children’s novel. Born in Paris, where she lived for the first five years of her life, Watson acted only in school plays before breaking into Hollywood with this film. Harry Potter has been an incredible money-spinner for Watson. h/t therichest
