Christina Hendricks, Olivia Munn victims of nude photo hacking scandal
Christina Hendricks, who plays bombshell Joan on the AMC series "Mad Men," and former G4 television host Olivia Munn are the latest celebrities to be targeted in a nude photo scandal.
Racy pictures of the two hit the web recently, showing them in various states of undress. At least one photo from each separate collection featured exposed private areas but did not show the women's heads.
A spokesperson for Hendricks said the actress' phone was hacked and photos were downloaded from it illegally but that an image depicting bare breasts was not a picture of her, according to Us Weekly.
Others who have had private photos downloaded illegally from their phones or email accounts in the past include Vanessa Hudgens, Christina Aguilera and Mila Kunis. Naked photos of a woman said to be Blake Lively hit the web last summer, just before the release of the actress' new movie "Green Lantern." Her spokesperson said they were fake.
The latest photo hacking occurred weeks before the March 25 premiere of the fifth season of "Mad Men." Hendricks, 36, is seen by many as sex symbol and has often showcased her curvy figure in tight, cleavage-baring dresses at red carpet events and on the 1960s-themed series, which often spurs chauvenistic comments from her character's colleagues. She has also posed for suggestive photos for magazines and ad campaigns.
Munn, who has also posed for racy magazine covers, responded to the picture leak with a Tweet, saying: "If you ever hacked my phone, these are the pictures you'd find," alongside a link to photos of a baby and a cat that she appeared to have gotten off the internet.
The 31-year-old has actually posed naked for photos in the past - she appeared nude for a PETA campaign last year.
Both Hendricks and Munn starred in the 2011 film "I Don't Know How She Does It" with Sarah Jessica Parker. Munn appears in the new series "The Newsroom," which is co-written by "The Social Network" screenwriter Aaron Sorkin and is due to premiere this summer. She also stars in the movie "Magic Mike," which sees Channing Tatum playing a male stripper and is due to hit theaters in June.
