Emma Watson has criticized the recent leaking of intimate photos of celebrities, saying that it shows "a lack of empathy".
Several images appearing to show A-list stars nude emerged on Twitter over the weekend (August 31). The stars' iCloud accounts were allegedly hacked by an anonymous party.
Girls creator and star Lena Dunham earlier condemned the hacking, describing whoever was behind it as a "sex offender".
Jennifer Lawrence, Ariana Grande and Victoria Justice are among the celebrities whose pictures were reported to have been hacked, although Grande and Justice have both dismissed images which appear to show them as fakes.
The source of the leak has claimed to have obtained as many as 60 private images of Lawrence.
A representative for the Hunger Games star has confirmed the authenticity of the images, threatening legal action against anyone who posts or publishes the stolen photos online.
