Emma Watson has launched legal action against hackers who stole and shared private photos of her online. The Beauty And The Beast star has said photos of her trying on outfits during a fitting have been stolen and shared online. Her spokesman did not give details on who stole the images, but said the photos, although private, were uncompromising. “Photos from a clothes fitting Emma had with a stylist a couple of years ago have been stolen,” he said. “They are not nude photographs. Lawyers have been instructed and we are not commenting further.”

Watson joins a long list of celebrities who have taken legal action on photo hacking scandals. Actresses Amanda Seyfried and Mischa Barton were the latest to speak over leaked sex photos and videos.Last month, a 29-year-old man was jailed for nine months for the so-called “Celeb gate”. He was accused of hacking into the electronic accounts of celebrities and stealing private information, including nude videos and photos. Hundreds of private photos were shared online, including the likes of Jennifer Lawrence, Rihanna, Kate Upton and Kirsten Dunst.
