LOS ANGELES – A publicist for Jennifer Lawrence said the actress has contacted authorities after nude photos of her were apparently stolen and posted online.
Intimate images of the Oscar-winning actress began appearing online on Sunday and nude images purported to be of other female celebrities were also being circulated online.
The source of the leak wasn’t immediately known.
Lawrence’s publicist, Liz Mahoney, calls the posts “a flagrant violation of privacy.” She said Lawrence, the star of “The Hunger Games” movies, has asked authorities to prosecute whoever is posting the photos.
Mahoney declined to provide any further details.
The FBI has investigated previous leaks of nude celebrity images, including leaks involving Scarlett Johansson, Christina Aguilera and footage shot of TV sports reporter Erin Andrews in a Tennessee hotel room.
FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller declined comment.
