10 Hollywood Celebrities Who Had Their Smartphone Hacked

By Andrew Alpin, 5 March 2017

Selfies galore and media appearances is extremely important for a celeb to remain in the limelight. It is more so when that involves female celebrities who love to pout into the camera. But then what happens when certain members of the public start getting hold of such images? How do they appear public in the first place? It’s simple, it means the phone has been hacked and one of the biggest offenders was 36 year old Ryan Collins serving 18 months in federal prison Pennsylvania for hacking into no less than a hundred celeb accounts. Many offenders followed suit and here are 10 such cases of celebrities with hacked smartphones.

10 Jennifer Lawrence

At the height of her Hunger Games popularity, Jennifer Lawrence suddenly found leaked images from her cellphone doing the rounds of the internet. Some of the images were highly discreet and intimate poses and there were loads of them. Lawrence of course saw red and got pissed at anyone looking at them. Of all the celebs, hers was the most aggressive stance taken against the leakage and it was of course because hers was the most popular.

9 Aly and AJ

The Michalka sisters had it going for them in 2004. While Aly stars in several CW dramas AJ is Lainey Lewis of hit sitcom ‘the Goldberg’s”. Both profess strong religious beliefs and it was a huge shock when leaked images hit the net showing them wearing nothing but sheets. The sisters of course had admitted they weren’t that strict with religion as they used to be.

8 Emily Ratajkowski

Wonder why someone hacked Emily Ratajkowski as she herself loves displaying her most discreet images on social media. She loves showing the twins so it would make no sense to hack her phone when such items are available from the actress herself. In fact she even disagreed with Lawrence and said Googling such stuff was acceptable and viewers shouldn’t feel bad. This is one celeb who actually liked her discreet images reveled for all to see.

7 Amber Heard

There are several people who associate the name Amber heard wit manipulation and lies. Of course many in Hollywood feel, this looker took Johnny Depp for a nice ride and made a nice profit from it. When she had shot several intimate scenes for the movie “the informers” the net was full of leaked photos of the incident. But, there wasn’t much surprise and most probably she was even happy with the free publicity.

6 Blake Lively

Blake lively is one hot bombshell and she knows it too. She snubbed Leonardo De Caprio for Ryan Reynolds. Reynolds must have impressed her because before he met her he was married to Scarlet Johansson. When leaked images of Blake Lively hit social media, they weren’t much of a furor as she seemed normal in the photos too. Although the topic of invasion of privacy fid crop up, they were swept aside as Lively herself did not pursue the issue further.

5 Vanessa Hudgens

As a celebrity with hacked smartphones she is also one of the prettiest stars in Hollywood. Famous for her high school musical days, Hudgens was hacked in 2007 where pictures of her in lingerie cropped up over the net. She of course being so young was worried about the incident affecting her career but did you think she learned her lesson??Not at all!! According to Ricky Gervais, the second incident also involving intimate images of Vanessa could have been the fault of the actress. Why put such pics of yourself on your computer knowing you are liable to be hacked. Gervais was bombarded with protests on Twitter and soon removed his tweet.

4 Scarlett Johansson

Ever since she appeared in home alone 3, Johansson lit up Hollywood and became a superstar, we all know and associate her with agent Romanov in the avengers franchise and can we get enough of her. It seems nit. When leaked images of Scarjo hit the net, she wasn’t too happy about it. Since then she has sworn off social media even though the images weren’t as revealing as some of the scenes she has shot for various intimate films. The images that appeared were blurry and of poor quality, so luckily for Scarjo, that was no big deal.

3 Ariana Grande

Arana Grande doesn’t really have a good reputation as a person in showbiz. It’s most likely that her hacked images were a result of a malicious attack on her. Grande maintained d that the leaked images weren’t her. She was victimized for the leaks but never really admitted to them. Grand was once busted when she was caught n CCTV spitting on a donut in a donut shop.

2 Emma Watson

This cutey of course needs no introduction because of her constant appearance in the Harry Potter franchise. She will soon be seen in “Beauty and the Beast” and makes a pretty picture as beauty. It seems though the prim and proper Mrs. Watson given the righteous actions of speaking out for equal women’s rights set herself up as a prime target for hackers. She did have some revealing stuff of herself on her Smartphone which is natural but the hacking was regarded as a crime no less.

1 Jessica Alba

Among celebrities with hacked smart phones, this is one of the cutest and we loved her in the fantastic four. What lured hackers to reveal her candid images was paparazzi shoot of her on a beach. However leaked photos of her soon began to appear but surprisingly though the shots weren’t that objectionable because where Alba is concerned she always looks good. Whether it was the shot of her pushing a stroller in yoga pants or others, they made her look cool and at the most it was considered an invasion of privacy.
