Jamie Dornan on nude photo leaks: Fifty Shades of Grey actor brands 4Chan hackers 'disgusting' over indecent image sharing
'I don't know how they're going to keep control over it,' the star said at the GQ Awards in London
Jamie Dornan, the star of Sam Taylor-Wood’s upcoming film adaptation of EL James’ erotic novel Fifty Shades of Grey, has condemned the actions of hackers who leaked scores of naked images and indecent videos of celebrities over the past few days.
“I don't know how they're going to keep control over it but there seems to be so many different ways, you know, that your information can be accessed.
“I think the thing to do is just avoid social media if you can. I think that's certainly helps, but that's easier said than done.”
Dornan was honoured with the Breakthrough Award at the event, which was attended by Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, Tony Blair and Johnny Depp, among others.
Over 100 household names have been the target of online thieves, who have stolen scores of naked photographs and intimate videos and posted them on the website 4Chan.
Several of the images – in particular, two of Hunger Games starJennifer Lawrence – quickly circulated on Twitter.
Among others the list includes Ariana Grande, Jessica Brown Findlay, Mary E Winstead, Rihanna, Kim Kardashian, Mary Kate Olsen, Mary E Winstead, Cara Delevingne, Kate Bosworth, Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Kate Upton, Kirsten Dunst and Kaley Cuoco.
The FBI and Apple are both conducting investigations into the apparent widespread invasion personal accounts thought to be connected to the iCloud service.
A spokesperson for Jennifer Lawrence, the most high-profile actress to be hacked, said: “This is a flagrant violation of privacy. The authorities have been contacted and will prosecute anyone who posts the stolen photos of Jennifer Lawrence”.
Meanwhile, representatives for Upton said they were “looking into” the authenticity of the indecent images.
The anonymous hacker also admitted that they were unhappy with how much money he or she has made from circulating the stolen photographs via 4Chan.
