Emma Watson private photos stolen in ‘hack’

Emma Watson is taking legal action after dozens of private images of her appeared online.

A spokesman for the Beauty and the Beast star confirmed the pictures – which show her trying on various outfits – were stolen.

“Photos from a clothes fitting Emma had with a stylist a couple of years ago have been stolen,” her publicist said.

“They are not nude photographs. Lawyers have been instructed and we are not commenting further.”

News of the theft comes a week after Watson sparked fierce debate over whether she was anti-feminist for exposing part of her breasts in a Vanity Fair photoshoot.

The actress was previously threatened in 2014 with a leak of nude images, after a speech she gave on gender equality as a UN Ambassador for Women.

Speaking at a Facebook event in 2015, she said? “I knew it was a hoax, I knew the pictures didn’t exist.

“The minute I stepped up and talked about women’s rights I was immediately threatened – within less than 12 hours I was receiving threats.”

Last month, a man in the US was jailed for nine months for hacking into the online accounts of celebrities, including Jennifer Lawrence, and stealing private information, including nude videos and photos.
