Within moments of the images appearing online, Jennifer Lawrence began trending on Twitter.

Lawrence’s spokespeople have responded to the photos, telling TMZ: “This is a flagrant violation of privacy. The authorities have been contacted and will prosecute anyone who posts the stolen photos of Jennifer Lawrence.”

The 4chan user seemingly responsible for the hack also shared two images of his desktop, with rows of photos and movies yet to be released.

 A list of the alleged victims has also appeared online, the news site noted. There are 101 names in total.

Some of those women include Aubrey Plaza, Candice Swanepoel, Cara Delevingne, Cat Deeley, Hillary Duff, Kaley Cuoco, Kate Upton, Kelly Brook, Kim Kardashian, Lea Michele, Michelle Keegan, Selena Gomez, Rihanna and Vanessa Hudgens.

The hacker claims to have a ‘full set’ of photographs of US soccer star Hope Solo, as well as a double photograph showing Allison Brie and Dave Franco.

The pictures were allegedly retrieved due to an iCloud leak that allowed celebrities’ phones to be hacked.
