Emma Watson taking legal action over private photos stolen in 'hack'
By Richard Spillett for MailOnline. Private images of the Harry Potter actress during a swimsuit fitting were leaked onto the web late Tuesday after her computer is believed to have been hacked. The fitting photos appeared in the same post as pictures of an unknown woman in the bath with her face cropped out, although Ms Watson has denied those pictures are of her. The year-old Watson announced Wednesday that she has brought in lawyers to deal with the issue. Personal pictures of Emma Watson have been stolen and posted online alongside photos of an unknown woman in the bath.

Nude Photos Leaked? Emma Watson has been flying high since the press tour for Beauty and the Beast started and all of the applause it is getting, but something recently happened that has royally pissed her off. So we know Emma is very proud of her body and believes women should be able to choose what they do with their bodies and how they express them. I use the word potentially, because the hackers made it seem like they were leaked nudes, but it was all a HOAX!! And now Emma Watson is furious!
In , someone created an online clock and called it "Emma you are next. The countdown clock turned out to be a hoax, appearing just after the "Celebgate" celebrity photo hacks and after Watson gave a feminist speech as a U. There were no stolen nudes to release; the whole thing, its creators claimed, was a prank to shut down 4chan over the site's role in distributing revealing images stolen from the private accounts of female celebrities, including Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton. It's even more likely that the "Emma you are next" incident was simply a sketchy attention grab without any real cause behind it. The hoax was believable at the time in part because the distribution of stolen private images of women has become a fixture of online abuse.
