Emma Watson Taking Legal Action After Photo Hack, None Were Nude, But Were Private

Beauty and the Beast and Harry Potter star Emma Watson is reportedly taking legal action after private photos of her were stolen and posted online.  A spokesperson for the actress says the photos show her trying on various outfits, according to BBC News. 

“Photos from a clothes fitting Emma had with a stylist a couple of years ago have been stolen,” her publicist told the BBC. “They are not nude photographs. Lawyers have been instructed and we are not commenting further.”


Unfortunately, incidents of women in the public eye being personally violated by hackers have become commonplace.


Watson’s story comes on the heels of an announcement that another female star is taking legal action over unauthorized images. Attorney Lisa Bloom is holding a press conference Wednesday to discuss reports that “revenge porn” featuring her client Mischa Barton is being shopped.
