When it comes to scandals involving female celebrities, nothing makes headlines quite like their nude photos being leaked onto the internet. Yet unfortunately, as you are going to find out, this is something that several of the most beautiful women in Hollywood have had to experience. Over 100 female celebrities had their privacy violated back in 2014 when Apple’s iCloud system was compromised. While some of these photos were tame, others were definitely a little more risqué than you may have been expecting from some of your favourite actresses (such as Jessica Alba or Aubrey Plaza, both of whom are below!).
Below you'll find out what some of these celebrities were doing in the photos, and we'll also go over some of their past films and upcoming ventures. There is an incredible amount of variety in the women below (including two Aussies!) but one thing they have in common is that they are all gorgeous. From a Harry Potter actress, to a reality TV star who you want to send back to the Shore, to others whose movies may be some of your favorites. There is no shortage of television stars as well, ranging from current stunners like Kat Dennings, to people who you may have used to ogle over like Christina Hendricks from Mad Men.
We’ve even got several actresses from Glee. There is even a former Glee star, who just happens to also be the lead in the Supergirl series and had leaked photos showing her during an intimate moment with her partner. For that matter, a former Lois Lane is on the list as well!
All that and more? Looks like you better get clicking!
If you get to the end of this list and are curious for more names (including some outside the acting world) who were victims of similar leaks, feel free to check our list of 20 Celebrities You Wouldn't Believe Had Nude Photos Leaked.
21 Jessica Alba
Jessica Alba may have never appeared naked in one of her films, but that didn’t stop the star from being one of the many victims who has had her privacy violated. Alba's photos got uploaded onto the internet in 2014, but they are far from the raciest ones out there. Alba is seen showing off her stomach, as she was a few months pregnant in the photos. Another photo was released of Alba in which she can be seen pulling down her shirt to expose one of her breasts.
20 Blake Lively
Blake may be a star from Gossip Girl, but you can imagine all the gossip was about her when her nude photos were leaked! When Blake’s photos were first leaked onto the internet, her legal representative came out and stated that Blake had never taken any naked photos of herself.
Unfortunately that only spurred the hacker on further, who proceeded to reveal even more hacked photos making it far harder for Blake to deny! Let’s just hope she doesn’t send her husband Ryan Reynolds (aka Deadpool!) after the hacker.
19 Christina Hendricks
There is no doubt that Christina Hendricks looks absolutely stunning as Joan Harris on the television show Mad Men. The actress just happens to be well-endowed, so when her phone was hacked back in 2012, you can imagine what part of her body they focused on! While Christina is one of the few people on here who does not have her face in the same photos as her nudity, other (more clothed photos) that were clearly taken off of Christina’s phone were also revealed, leading people to confirm the naked photos as being her.
18 Olivia Munn
Olivia joked that if anyone hacked into her phone all they would find would be pictures of babies and cats. I guess she chose to ignore the see-through lingerie, bikinis, and other clothing that is most definitely not safe for the red carpet! Over 20 photos of the star were leaked back in 2012. Given that there were also some explicit messages attached on the photos that were meant for Chris Pine (her boyfriend at the time), it became even harder for Olivia to deny that it was her in the photos. She still did, but whether you believe her is up to you.
17 Leven Rambin
Leven’s name may not stand out to you in comparison to some of the names on this list, but I assure you how she looks definitely should! Leven has had success in a variety of big projects, including but not limited to The Hunger Games, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles and One Tree Hill. The photos aren’t anything all too scandalous, and just show Leven standing in front of a mirror without a shirt on and some yoga pants. It may be a ‘basic outfit’ but something tells me her partner probably doesn’t mind.
16 Evanna Lynch
Wait what? The girl from Harry Potter? That’s right! Luna Lovegood herself had some photos released in 2014 that show a few body shots (including some self-love) and a few photos of a girl with a face that looks incredibly similar to Evanna. You can imagine these photos getting released came as a big shock to Evanna, especially because she has openly denied that they are her. There is no telling if she is being truthful, or just trying to use some of her magical ability to deceive us. Something tells me hunting down the photos will still not be a waste of your time.
15 Teresa Palmer
Teresa Palmer is an Australian actress who has had a few successful films so far, including The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, I Am Number Four and Warm Bodies. On top of that, she has several films coming out in 2016, so you can expect to see quite a bit of her the rest of the year. Want to see even more of her? Palmer did not try and deny it when nude photos were leaked a few years ago. The photos were taken by her boyfriend during a romantic getaway and surprisingly were not meant to be shared all over the internet! Teresa is the first, but not the last Australian to make the list.
14 Kate Bosworth
Kate Bosworth may have experience playing Lois Lane, but not even Superman could save her from having her nude photos leaked onto the internet. Several photos of her were released in 2014 and show Kate wearing no makeup, with a similar approach to her clothing. There was no denying the images were of Kate, whose face appears in several compromising photos. Good thing for her she just happens to also be one of the most gorgeous women in the world.
13 Cat Deeley
Cat Deeley is no stranger to television, hosting the reality show So You Think You Can Dance since 2005. Yet as she learned, she is also no stranger to having her privacy violated during the apple iCloud hack in 2014. The photos show her standing naked in a hotel room alongside her husband Patrick Kielty while the two were out on vacation. Cat may be gorgeous, but I am sure she is much happier being the host than having to be judged, especially after something embarrassing like this happens!
12 Becca Tobin
Becca Tobin may have made a name for herself on Glee, but that’s probably the sound her fans made when they discovered she had nude photos on the internet! Becca's photos were leaked during the iCloud scandal. Among the compromising shots was one of Becca decorating a Christmas tree while standing beside it naked. As a result, Becca tweeted out “Merry XXXMas!”.
At least she was able to have a sense of humor about it! I wonder if she was able to bond with her fellow Glee star below about it, who you're going to find out had far more revealing photos leaked.
11 Aly Michalka
Aly may have grown up as a Disney star, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t have a wild side. This became evident when several revealing photos were released of the starlet. They were clearly taken by Aly herself, making it hard for the actress to do anything but embrace the photos being out there. There was one photo where she sheepishly tries to cover her face with a book, but when 6-8 photos of yourself get leaked there is no hiding! The only question is, when are we going to start seeing nude photos that are taken with a selfie stick?
10 Jessica Brown-Findlay
If you watch Jessica on her hit television show Downton Abbey, you may think she is one of the last actresses to have her photos and privacy violated. Yet she was not able to escape the iCloud scandal, and she perhaps got it worse than most celebrities. Not only did naked photos of Jessica emerge, but there were also photos where a "male member" was draped over her eye. Hardly the image you want your fanbase to see of yourself! You can imagine she is going to be a lot more careful about what happens in the bedroom now.
9 Renee Olstead
Renee has found success on a variety of television programs. She was one of the central characters in the show Still Standing which aired for 88 episodes. Renee also appeared on the television show The Secret Life Of The American Teenager for 89 episodes. Renee had her photos leaked even before the iCloud scandal, as it was back in 2011 when her photos hit the internet. Several photos showed her in a variety of compromising, and very planned poses, including bringing in some external gadgets to help make the show all the more appealing to whoever she was sending the photos too.
Snooki is one of the rare celebrities out there who has had photos of her leaked on the internet, but none that show her breasts! The main photo of Snooki was leaked back in 2012 and shows her standing in a hotel room, but there is a censor bar over the images. There is another photo in which she is spreading her legs, which I assure you is a lot less censored. There was also a gentleman who attempted to sell real nudes of Snooki back in 2010, and I mean, nothing could ever go wrong from buying nudes on the internet, right?
7 Rachel Nichols
There is no doubt that Rachel can kick some serious ass, at least on screen! The talented actress has appeared in G.I. Joe and Conan The Barbarian but is also no stranger to television, having also appeared on the television show Continuum. Rachel was one of the celebrities who had her photos leaked in the iCloud scandal back in 2014. The photos were clearly Nichols, showing her face, and as a fun twist, she was blonde in the photos (meaning they were a few years old at the time). It truly shows just how far back some of these violating photos were tracked down from.
6 AnnaLynne McCord
Did you watch the re-booted version of the television show 90210? If so, you would have immediately recognized AnnaLynne who appeared in all 114 episodes of the series. Though you may have a harder time recognizing her without clothes on, especially in the variety of poses that she was showing off in her leaked nudes. Ranging from some action with a gentleman friend to some seductive lingerie shots, it is clear that AnnaLynne was aiming to impress. She just probably was not expecting to impress the internet.
5 Amber Heard
If you don’t know Amber Heard yet, you will soon. The talented actress is cast as Mera, who will have a significant role in both the first Justice League movie as well as the first Aquaman movie. The photos show Amber clearly trying to seduce her partner (at least allegedly at the time), Johnny Depp, through the camera. Heard was one of the celebrities whose photos were leaked during the iCloud scandal, and she has been successful at getting a large majority of her photos removed from most websites. Let’s hope she was able to put the entire experience behind her.
4 Melissa Benoist
Melissa was one of the biggest stars on the television show Glee from 2012-2014, which definitely adds a "cute girl" image to her resume, but that cute girl image was about to get washed away real quick. On top of that, she’s also currently the lead in the Supergirl series. And when it comes to having nude photos leaked, there might not be anyone out there that has had more raunchy ones. Several photos are taken that heavily feature both Melissa and her partner and were clearly taken with a tripod camera and in different stages of passion. I guess actresses know all about trying to have the right angle.
3 Emily Browning
Emily Browning has the distinction of being the 2nd, and also the last Australian to make our list. Photos of Emily emerged showing her in various states of undress, including some in which she has a very significant sunburn! She just happens to also be naked in the photos where she is showing off the burn. But who can blame her, sunburns SUCK. There are also various photos that were taken of Emily as she talked on the phone topless. Unlike some of these celebrities who were taking selfies, Emily’s photos were clearly taken by her partner, so at least you know she had someone to help her with that burn.
2 Aubrey Plaza
Now the ‘problem’ with the leaked photos of Aubrey Plaza, is that there were only 3 of them and they were all from the waist down. This means that while you can never completely verify them, that didn’t stop people from trying to find marks on her body to compare to her nude photos. There was also rumors of a video of Aubrey engaging in some self-love, but that never seemed to come to fruition. Given how much of a smart-ass Aubrey’s character is on Parks and Recreation, I cannot believe she hasn’t responded with a snappy comment about the scandal.
1 Kat Dennings
Kat Dennings is not one of the most loved celebrities in Hollywood, in fact there are several reports of her being incredibly difficult to work with backstage. But nobody deserves to have their privacy violated, not even bitchy stars! Given that Kat is one of the biggest sex symbols in society, you can imagine that she is one of the bigger names to have her photos leaked, but she was far from the last victim. The photos first hit the internet in 2010, but it was not until 2012 when she got more popular that the photos gained more traction.
