When you are a celebrity, one of the biggest things that you need to be aware of is that you’re probably going to have significantly less privacy when you are going out for a night on the town. But that definitely does not mean that these women ever expected their intimate photos or videos to ever become public knowledge.
However for the 20 absolutely gorgeous women on our list below, that is exactly what happened to them. Whether it was some intimate photos or some full on booty bumping that was caught on camera, these 20 women definitely showed off a more extreme side than you may be expecting.
While some of the women like Emily Ratajkowski and Kaley Cuoco took a much more relaxed approach, you will also find that not everyone on this list felt that way. In fact, Leighton Meester and Jennifer Lopez will help show you the lengths that these celebrities need to go through to get these taped blocked from entering the public eye. Or you know, you can be like Kim Kardashian and just use your night of passion to bring home millions.
Whether they loved, hated or regretted their time in front of the camera, we’ve tracked down the details and information behind some of the biggest intimate leaks of all time.
20. Kat Dennings – Had Photos Leaked Twice
When Kat Dennings was hanging out in 2010 and feeling pretty confident in her body, she probably was not thinking that the photos she was about to take were going to make their way to the internet. And while she may be solo in the photos, she’s also definitely without clothing and you can imagine that makes for some awkward conversations with the parents.
Sadly for Dennings, while the photos were first leaked back in 2010 even more photos got released (from the same shoot) in 2012.
19. Tulisa Contostavlos – X Factor Judge Has The XXX Factor
Tulisa Contostavlos may have starred as a judge on The X Factor, but you better believe she was hoping people would never have been checking out her XXX Factor!
In 2012, Tulisa had a six-minute tape emerge of her and her former partner Justin Edwards (who also goes by MC Ultra) get leaked on the internet, but she quickly struck the video down with an injunction that prevents the distribution of the tape.
She then took to twitter to call out Edwards, who she blames for leaking the video
“I wanted to set the record straight on a certain tape circulating online, that consists of footage of me and my ex-boyfriend having an intimate moment. I have never been the type to sit down and keep my mouth shut, and to keep quiet about anything, especially when I’ve done nothing wrong whatsoever.”
Tulisa also admitted that the video had been used as a form of blackmail, “Six months ago, I got a call from a mutual friend saying that apparently he has footage of me, that he’s been threatening to bring it out to ruin my career. I confronted him, he lied about it. And here we are today and the footage is now circulating online.”
She went on to say,
“As you can imagine, I am devastated, heartbroken. When you share an intimate moment with someone that you love and care about and trust, you never imagine that footage will be shared with the world.”
18. Carrie Prejean – Lost Miss California Because of Solo-Tape
Carrie Prejean was once considered to be the most beautiful woman in all of California, winning Miss California in 2009. Yet within a year of winning her crown, Prejean was stripped of her title citing that she continually breached parts of her contract.
One of the biggest examples of this? Having an intimate video release of you getting “busy” with yourself! When talking about the movie, Prejean said, “I was all by myself. I was a teenager at the time, and never did I ever think it would come out. But it was bad judgment. They can call it whatever they want to call it, but it was the biggest mistake of my life.”
17. Olivia Munn – Included Explicit Directions For Lover
As we try and recap some of the biggest nude photo scandals of the gorgeous girls in Hollywood, it’s the sense of variety that Olivia Munn‘s brings to the list that made her a guaranteed entry. Munn’s leaked photos were clearly meant for her then-boyfriend Chris Pine and featured several “captions” on the photos with instructions on what she’d like Pine to do to her.
On top of various states of lingerie, some fully nude photos of Munn emerged but her representatives were quick to deny that the completely exposed ones were her,
“Several pics hit the web today — appearing to show Olivia in various states of undress … pink lingerie, a black bra, a white bra, a pink bikini, a low-cut v-neck … and then fully nude.
Sources tell TMZ, several of the shots are legit — namely the black bra, the bikini, the v-neck … all of which Olivia has previously posted on her blog or Twitter…We’re told someone with a similar body to Olivia is taking provocative photos and trying to pass them off as the real thing — why … we have no idea.”
16. Kendra Wilkinson – Taken Before Her Fame
Kendra Wilkinson has plenty of experience revving men’s engines with her experience in Playboy, but she definitely never expected a previous hardcore home movie with her and a lover was going to be put on her resume.
The video was obtained by Vivid Entertainment who released the footage in 2010, despite Wilkinson’s camp attempting to get them to cease and desist.
When defending their actions Vivid said, “The tape was brought to us by a third party and after consulting with our attorneys, we are confident in our right to distribute it.”
While Wilkinson is married to former NFL player Hank Bassett, it appears to be an old boyfriend in the video.
15. Mila Kunis – Hacker Sentenced To 10 Years In Jail
While plenty of the women who had their life get exposed happened because of the iCloud scandal, Mila Kunis‘ life got exposed by Christopher Chaney.
Chaney was arrested after hacking and exposing intimate photos of various celebrities, a decision that ended up landing him 10 years in jail. When you consider Kunis has come out in the past and said that the most nudity she is comfortable showing on screen is some side-boob, you can understand she must have been extra horrified when she was informed of the leak.
14. Eric Dane In A Trio – Things Got McSteamy
Eric Dane may be best known for his nickname McSteamy on Grey’s Anatomy, which you can imagine was a very appropriate nickname for the steamy night he shared with his wife Rebecca Gayheart and Kari-Ann Peniche. In the video, Dane and Gayheart both look intoxicated (or on drugs as a pipe is in the video) as they relax with Peniche.
Peniche is a former Miss Oregon Teen and while it’s clear the three had themselves an intimate evening, Peniche has since come out and said she didn’t have full on sex with Dane.
13. Kate Upton – Justin Verlander Also In Photos
You can imagine they’ve been through a lot together, and that he was probably on the receiving end of the photo on our right of Upton posing in front of the camera. But if you think that’s the only image that came from the scandal, think again. In fact, there were even some raunchy photos released of the two getting down and dirty!
12. Pamela Anderson – Tapes With Tommy Lee and Bret Michaels
Pamela Anderson may have looked outstanding in a swimsuit for Baywatch, but it was her leaked video with Tommy Lee that garnered arguably the most attention.
The tape leaked in 1996 and was clearly never meant for public eyes. In fact, the home movie was located in a safe which was literally stolen from their property.
Not to mention the fact that the movie includes some pretty raunchy sex acts that you think they’d rather have left out, had they known it was going to be viewed by everyone!
If you’re wondering if people enjoyed the tape, in 1997 Howard Stern said “It’s the greatest tape I have ever seen in my life. What’s cool about it is that, like, you get to live their lives with them.”
11. Kaley Cuoco – Not The Big Bang She Wants You To See
Kaley Cuoco may be best-known for her time on The Big Bang Theory, but you better believe she never wants to have her big bang at home ever get publicized as much as her previous leaked photos were.
Cuoco was one of the biggest names attached to the iCloud scandal and as well as having photos of her in various states of undress, another photo also exists on the internet of her getting handsy with a male gentleman.
Cuoco later described her thought process on the scandal to Jimmy Kimmel, “So, every day, every day there’s like 30 ‘Kaley Cuoco nude photos’ [alerts]. It’s been going on for years. This one came up … and then I started getting emails like, ‘No, there are some real ones going around’ and I looked and was like, ‘Oh my God, there are some real ones.”
10. Nicole Narain And Colin Farrell – Both Tried To Stop The Tape
Colin Farrell is an incredibly talented actor, but this list is all about the gorgeous ladies that got exposed and you better believe his counterpart in his sex tape is gorgeous. Nicole Narain is a former Playboy Playmate of the Month, as well as appearing in several different music videos.
When the sex tape emerged in 2005, both Narain and Farrell sued to try and limit the distribution of the tape that ended up being around 15 minutes long.
“The whole thing was horrifying. I was deposed for four hours explaining why I didn’t want it to be released. God forbid, it’s an on-demand movie in a hotel room and my mother says, ‘Oh, I haven’t seen this work of my son’s,’ and hits purchase,” said Farrell when talking to Elle about the incident.
9. Scarlett Johansson – Doesn’t Want To Be A Victim
Ryan Reynolds has plenty of reasons to feel like a lucky man, but one of them definitely has to be that at least at some point in time, he was married to the gorgeous Scarlett Johansson. Yet while she was just trying to rev his engine with some intimate photos, instead she became one of the biggest names of celebrities to have their privacy violated.
Johansson had the photos get released in 2011 by Christopher Chaney, who you’ll recognize as the man who also violated Mila Kunis’ privacy.
When talking about her initial reaction to the leak, Johansson said “When all those photos came out, of course, I go out to dinner and think, G-ddamn it, these people have all seen my … That’s terrible. You know what I mean? You can’t not think that. Even if they haven’t, you’re paranoid.”
Johansson did later admit though that as pissed as she was, she didn’t want it to hold her back “‘It wasn’t just me. It was others. I don’t want to be a victim and say, ‘Oh, well’ and just hide my head in shame. Somebody stole something from me… It’s sick. I don’t want people like that to slide.”
8. Leighton Meester – Tape Shows Off Her Feet Skills
Leighton Meester may be best known for her role in Gossip Girl, but when it comes to her adult tape all we can do is gossip because she’s done an outstanding job of locking the tape down.
Rumors of the tape first circulated in 2009 and allegedly featured Meester and her boyfriend, including a scene that TMZ said included her “Very talented feet,” which makes her unique as being the only person on our list to get that part of her body highlighted.
The tape was confirmed by gossip website celebhotline.com who attempted to purchase it but was unsuccessful. Outside of her talented acting career, Meester has found success in the music world, which at the very least also means she can write some pretty killer songs about the experience!
7. Rihanna – Had Photos Leaked Twice
Rihanna may love singing about whips and chains in the bedroom, but that doesn’t mean she deserves to have her sexual escapades become public knowledge. But not only has this happened to her once, it has happened to her twice.
The first leak came in 2009 and came shortly after her relationship, which the public had just learned was abusive, with Chris Brown first ended.
Rihanna was also prominently targeted in the iCloud scandal and had up to 15 photos released of her all in a various state of undress.
When Rihanna was first asked to comment on the leak back in 2009, she opened up to EW
“I just felt like my whole privacy was taken before that [by the injury photo] and then, when that came out, I thought, ‘Oh great, so now there’s nothing they don’t know about me and my private life.’ It was humiliating and it was embarrassing.”
6. Abi Titmuss, Aisha Abubakar, And John Leslie – Three’s Not A Crowd!
Abi Titmuss and John Leslie both have some experience as a television presenter, so perhaps that experience of giving direction came in handy when they decided to take model Aisha Abubakar back to their home one night for a raunchy session.
The video which released in 2004 feature Abubaker getting intimate with both Abi and John for 15+ minutes as well as having a variety of toys getting brought into play.
While Abi didn’t seem all too embarrassed by this (perhaps because her modelling career features her prancing around half-naked and giving sex advice), but that is not the case for Aisha Abubakar.
When talking about the experience, Aisha said,
“I am totally devastated by this. My career is in ruins and my family will be heartbroken that I did something like this. It was a terrible, terrible mistake— something I agreed to in the heat of the moment. I was so naive.”
5. Melissa Benoist – Leaked Photos With A Gentleman Lover
Melissa Benoist may be known for her role on Glee, but you can imagine having her leaked photos definitely did not fill her with that emotion. Though when you consider she’s the lead in Supergirl, you can imagine she’s learned some pretty badass action moves for if this ever happens to her again.
Benoist was targeted in the iCloud scandal and had several photos of her removing her superhero tights with a gentleman lover.
4. Kim Kardashian – Made Millions Off The Tape
Kim Kardashian is known for being famous for a lot of things, but you better believe that if she could, she would change how her “career” started out.
Kardashian’s 2003 sex tape with Ray J. made its way into the hands of Vivid entertainment and in 2007 was one of their most popular videos. Kardashian was originally upset at the release of the tape and attempted to sue the company for millions, but eventually dropped the settlement for roughly $5 million.
When talking about the tape at the time of the scandal, Kardashian said, “I have so much going on in my life. I never wanted anyone to think of me as ‘Kim Kardashian, sex tape star’. I still have to live with the embarrassment and fear that one day my grandkids are going to see it.”
3. Emily Ratajkowski – Fine With People Looking
If we’re being completely honest, it definitely is not the hardest thing in the world to track down photos of Emily Ratajkowski where she is wearing an incredibly limited amount of clothing. But when the iCloud scandal hit, it left Emily completely exposed for the world to see in a much more private setting.
It is perhaps Emily’s comfort with her body that led to her taking a much more relaxed stance on the leak.
“A lot of people who were victims of that said anyone who looks at these pictures should feel guilty, but I just don’t think that’s fair. I think once it’s out there, it’s out there, and I’m not sure that anyone who Googles it is necessarily a criminal. I think the people that stole the photos are,” said Ratajkowski when she was approached for comment.
2. Jennifer Lopez – 20+ Minutes, Court Ordered To Not Be Released
Jennifer Lopez definitely has had some of her bedroom activities caught on video camera, but you better not be expecting to see it anytime soon. Her ex-husband Ojani Noa has come out on several occasions and said that he has 20+ minutes of footage of he and J-Lo getting down and dirty, but anytime traction starts getting built, J-Lo slaps him down with a lawsuit.
Perhaps her no-nonsense approach has also scared off Suge Knight who in the past has threatened to release intimate videos of Lopez.
“I have the utmost respect for women. And I like the fact that J-Lo has a career and she’s also had a lot of sponsors and movies and stuff, and any type of video that would threaten her sponsors, to me is unfair to put out,” said Knight when asked about the tapes in early 2017.
Looks like it’s going to have to be Drake and J-Lo bumping booties if we expect to see Lopez in action anytime soon.
1. Jennifer Lawrence – 30+ Photos Released
There isn’t a bigger name in the iCloud scandal than Jennifer Lawrence, so perhaps it is only fair that we end the list with her. Not only did arguably more photos get released of Lawrence than any other celebrity, but she was also arguably the most outspoken with her disgust on the matter saying in a past interview
“Just because I’m a public figure, just because I’m an actress, does not mean that I asked for this… It’s my body, and it should be my choice.”
Given her outrage you can imagine that there were photos released of Lawrence that were far more extreme than the cropped one we included above.
We are sure many of the women on our list are proud to have someone outspoken like Lawrence to help defend their rights.
