Celebrities beware: you may want to remove any pictures you wouldn't want your mother to see from your cell phone. There's been yet another female star who had her privacy invaded technologically. Christina Hendricks, the red-haired bombshell of "Mad Men" fame says not to believe everything you see, at least when it comes to pictures that allegedly came from her cell phone. The 36-year-old actress who lights up the small screen in AMC's drama centering around the advertising world in the 1960s, recently had her cell phone hacked. Sunday night, pictures of a topless red head started circulating but a rep for the actress told TMZ that they are fake.
Christina's rep however did not deny that photos of the actress without make up were real, only the topless shots were called into question. With the advent of smart phones with digital cameras, once a hacker is able to break into a star's phone, there's no telling what kind of private photos they can find and distribute. Hendricks is really just the latest actress who have been the victim of techno-theft. Here now are a few of the more notable cases.
Olivia Munn - The sexy comedian and correspondent for Comedy Central's news commentary show "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" had her phone hacked the same day as Hendricks. Photos of the 31-year-old Munn were also leaked out onto the web, with just one topless shot among them. Olivia chose to take the comical route and she tweeted out pictures of babies and cats and telling her Twitter followers those were the kinds of pictures you'd find on her phone.
Scarlett Johansson - Late in 2011, ScarJo's cell phone was also hacked. And, you guessed it, nude photos of the "Lost in Translation" star were shot out to the web. What makes Johansson's case so different from the others though is that the nude photos were real, and she even confirmed it! Scarlett confirmed without any apology that the pics were indeed her, taken for her husband at the time, actor Ryan Reynolds.
Mila Kunis - The "Black Swan" star had her cell phone hacked right around the same time as Johansson. The hubbub over these particular digital snapshots was the presence of "Friends With Benefits" co-star Justin Timberlake in a few of them, one of which reportedly showed Timbo on a bed, shirtless. The two denied any romantic relationship however, and not much else was made of the photos.
