Anna Kendrick was not among the 100 high-profile names to have had her phone hacked, but she says that we’d all be pretty disappointed with any leaked pictures anyway.
She says that, far from the naked images of Jennifer Lawrence, Rihanna and Cara Delevingne, who are all victims of a large-scale phone hacking allegedly caused by an iCloud leak, the contents of her phone are of a more PG variety.
She published a screen grab of a text message that her brother has sent her, in which he showed his relief that her name wasn’t featured on the list of over 100 celebrities involved in the hacking.
Don't worry bro, it would just be photos of food and other people's dogs anyway. pic.twitter.com/Ol1RChRM9S; Anna Kendrick (@AnnaKendrick47) September 1, 2014
Lawrence’s spokesperson confirmed that the photos of the star were real.
“This is a flagrant violation of privacy,” said the actress’ spokesperson. “The authorities have been contacted and will prosecute anyone who posts the stolen photos of Jennifer Lawrence.”
Among the many websites to have published the images is Perez Hilton. The blogger has since deleted the pictures and wrote an apology.
“No, I haven't been forced to do so or been contacted by their reps, but I am removing those uncensored photos of JLaw and Victoria Justice,” he initially wrote alongside censored versions of the images.
“I acted in haste just to get the post up and didn't really think things through. I'm sorry.”
