Amanda Seyfried has demanded that nude pictures of her are removed from the internet amid fears celebrities’ computers are being hacked for personal photos.
Pictures of the actress appeared online yesterday alongside photos stolen from Harry Potter star Emma Watson.
Seyfried’s lawyers are now threatening a website with legal action if they don’t take the images down, it was reported today.
Personal pictures of Amanda Seyfried and Emma Watson have been stolen and posted online
A letter from her legal team, seen by website TMZ, states: ‘Several very private photographs of Ms. Seyfried either in various states of nudity or in intimate moments with her former boyfriend (the “Seyfried Photographs”) have been reproduced and posted.’
The batch of images of Seyfried are also believed to have been posted on ‘the dark web’, a matrix of encrypted websites that allow users to surf with anonymity.
Seyfried is currently engaged and expecting her first child with Thomas Sadoski.
The intimate photos that were stolen are from her time with Justin Long, whom she dated from 2013 to 2015.
It is unclear if the photos were stolen from Long or Seyfried’s device.
Seyfried has starred in a string of hit films, including Mamma Mia!, Jennifer’s Body and Les Misérables, since she first appeared in teen comedy Mean Girls in 2004.

The stolen photos of Emma Watson showed her posing in a range of swimsuits during a fitting she attended.
They were posted online alongside photos of a woman in the bath, whose face is not visible.
A spokesman for Watson confirmed the pictures of her in the swimsuit had been stolen, but denied nude photos were hers.
The spokesman said: ‘Photos from a clothes fitting Emma had with a stylist a couple of years ago have been stolen.
‘They are not nude photographs. Lawyers have been instructed and we are not commenting further.’
