A representative of Emma Watson has confirmed that some of the leaked pictures are legitimate. “Photos from a clothes fitting Emma had with a stylist a couple of years ago have been stolen. They are not nude photographs. Lawyers have been instructed and we are not commenting further,” according to BBC.

The alleged leaked pictures of Amanda Seyfried and Jillian Murray are more explicit. Seyfried’s lawyer has said that they will take “any and all appropriate steps to protect and enforce our client’s rights.”
