Whilst attention should be on her forthcoming inevitable box office hit Beauty And The Beast, Emma Watson is instead having to fend off critics of her semi-nude Vanity Fair cover shoot, duel with Piers Morgan and plan legal action against hackers who have allegedly leaked photographs from her phone. Less than ideal.
Reps for Beauty And The Beast star told Metro.co.uk that, "The pictures – which show Emma trying on outfits at a swimsuit fitting two years ago – had been taken in the hack."
The series of images pictures a women in the bath naked with her face cropped out of view. Emma has insisted these photographs are not of her. She confirmed in a statement that she is in talks with lawyers over the images.
"Photos from a clothes fitting Emma had with a stylist a couple of years ago have been stolen,' her spokesman said. 'They are not nude photographs. Lawyers have been instructed and we are not commenting further.'
The actor has already suffered at the hands of internet douchebags as back in 2014 when following her viral speech to the UN on her gender equality campaign, hackers threatened to leak nude photographs of her.
She later commented that: "I knew it was a hoax, I knew the pictures didn't exist, but I think a lot of people that were close to me knew gender equality was an issue but didn't think it was that urgent, that it was a thing of the past. And then when they saw that the minute I stood up talking about women's rights I was immediately threatened, I think they were really shocked, my brother was particularly upset."
