Just because a spokesman for the starlet says it ain’t so, doesn’t mean they aren’t the real deal.
On the other hand, more than one actress has been the victim of scam photos.
Emma herself was the subject of rumors in 2012 that she had made a sex tape with a long-forgotten boyfriend who was trying to shop it around. The tape never surfaced.
Back in 2010, some mischievous Brown University frat boys circulated around campus a nude photo that was supposed to be then-student Emma Watson.
But the photo turned to be a total fake. Emma has been the target of several fake photos over the years.
A topless photo allegedly of Taylor Swift also made the rounds, but was later declared to be fake, as well.
Then, three years ago, a series of nude photographs purporting to Blake Lively hit the Internet and drew quick denials from her reps and and legal threats from her lawyers.
“Blake has never taken nude photos of herself,” her rep said at the time. “Blake will pursue legal action against the publication which initially published these photographs and any other outlets that republish them in any manner.”
Of course, if they photos weren’t her, why would she care? As it turned out, they were real. So much for heated denials.
Miley Cyrus had numerous private photos go viral, although none were nude, while nude photos of Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Greene also hit the web.
Actress Scarlett Johansson was the victim of notorious hacker. The FBI arrested the hacker who circulated them, but by then they had gone viral.
The photos, taken three years earlier, were meant only for her husband, she later said.
“There’s nothing wrong with that. It’s not like I was shooting a porno… Although there’s nothing wrong with that either,” she said in a famous response.
Another topless selfie of Indy race car driver Danica Patrick, also surfaced on the Internet recently.
The fact is, many celebrities take nude selfies of themselves. And, sometimes the end up in an embarrassing public display.
Unforch, the purported photo of Emma is a little to risque for this site, but you can see it here.
