Emma Watson, Amanda Seyfried take legal action over leaked photos
Lawyers get involved after Intimate photos of Seyfried with a former beau and Watson trying on clothes were leaked.
Lawyers for actresses Emma Watson and Amanda Seyfried are coming for the people who leaked private photos of the Hollywood stars.
A representative for Watson confirmed that photos circulating online Wednesday were authentic and had been stolen.
“Photos from a clothes fitting Emma had with a stylist a couple of years ago have been stolen. They are not nude photographs,” Watson’s publicist, Luke Windsor, told USA TODAY in a statement. “Lawyers have been instructed and we are not commenting further.”
In Seyfried’s case, the actress was photographed in intimate situations with a former boyfriend and the photos were leaked to the website Celebrity Jihad, which traffics in nude celebrity photos, both real and Photoshopped. In a letter obtained by TMZ Thursday, her attorneys threatened legal action against the site unless they were removed immediately and demanded that the site preserve evidence of the photos and any correspondence pertaining to their use or distribution.
Until this is prosecuted as the sex crime that it is, women will continue to be victimized by disgusting predators.
