She’s also the first celebrity to take a shot at Apple’s iCloud, a content sharing service which is believed to have been hacked.
More than 100 celebrities reportedly have had their online iCloud accounts compromised, but far fewer than that number have actually had private, intimate photos posted online.
According to an examination by TheImproper, three photos of Dunst have been posted on social media sites that show her topless from the waist up. She’s shown more in her movies.
Nonetheless, the breach is considered a violation of privacy.
“Thank you iCloud,” Dunst Tweeted today, acknowledging the leak.
Other celebrities were far more vocal.
“This is a flagrant violation of privacy. The authorities have been contacted and will prosecute anyone who posts the stolen photos of Jennifer Lawrence,” the actresses rep said.
Supermodel Kate Upton was a double victim. Her nude photos appeared to have come from boyfriend Justin Verlander’s account and not her own. Hers are among the more graphic and they are pictured nude together.
“This is obviously an outrageous violation of our client Kate Upton’s privacy. We intend to pursue anyone disseminating or duplicating these illegally obtained images to the fullest extent possible,” her lawyer said in a statement.
The alleged hacker spoke out today over a social sharing site and said the effort to break into Apple’s iCloud was the work of several individuals over several months.
“Guys, just to let you know I didn’t do this by myself,” the anonymous hacker wrote. “There are several other people who were in on it and I needed to count on to make this happened.”
“This is the result of several months of long and hard work by all involved. We appreciate your donations and applaud your excitement.
“I will soon be moving to another location from which I will continue to post.”
Both the FBI and Apple are said to be investigating, but it sounds like the nude celebrity scandal is far from over. To stay abreast of the latest developments, follow TheImproper on Twitter.
