Jessica Chastain slams hackers of nude photo leaks

2014-09-24 11:00

Los Angeles - Jessica Chastain has slammed hackers for the latest spate of nude celebrity photographs leaked online, insisting it is a "violation".

The 37-year-old actress hit out at the Hollywood hackers behind the latest release of topless pictures purportedly of stars such as Amber Heard, Kim Kardashian West and Kate Bosworth, insisting the pictures have been "stolen" rather than "leaked".

Speaking to Sky News, she said: "It's such a violation. To me they're not leaked photos, they're stolen photos. Me appearing nude in a film is my choice and I find it so terrible that these actresses have been completely victimised."

The flame-haired star has called on officials to go down hard on the hackers when they are eventually caught.

She added: "Anything sexual which does not have the woman saying 'Yes' is a big problem to me, so I hope that we find out who these people were and we can go after them as hard as we can."

Jessica's comments came after a second wave of images, including pictures believed to be of Avril Lavigne, Gabrielle Union and Rihanna, were leaked onto the internet.

More than 100 celebrities were affected by the scandal last month after an identified hacker stole explicit images and videos from Apple's iCloud service.

Apple said it was "outraged" by the attack and encouraged users to update their accounts with a "strong" password and enable two-step verification.

Stars such as Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton were among the victims of the massive privacy breach last month.
