I know we're going to lose 100% of our male readers once I say this, but Julianne Hough has been the latest victim of leaked cell phone photos.
...And there go all of our straight male readers, headed for the Google search bar.
On Tuesday, the Footloose actress/dancer joined the ranks of Hollywood beauties who have had their smart phones hacked.
And like any beautiful woman who wants to immortalize her good looks, Julianne likes to take pictures of herself. She had a bunch of "racy" photos on her phone that mostly consisted of her posing in a skimpy bikini.
The raciest was a shot of her boobs (totally covered), and another was her donning a mustache. Oh yeah, there's one of her boyfriend, Ryan Seacrest, sleeping at his desk.
These don't really fall under the NSFW category. You might have some explaining to do if you were looking at them at work (unless you have my job, where you get to look at half-naked celebrities without your bosses batting an eye), but you probably wouldn't get fired over it.
Julianne responded to the hack, and she's really not that bothered by it.
"Well, it actually got hacked like a couple of months ago but it all came out today. You know what? It's a good thing I’m a good girl. And there wasn't anything too racy on there. …you know what's frustrating though? It’s not even necessarily what the pictures were or even what is out there. It’s just the fact that that's, like, personal."
That's so true. Because if someone hacked my phone, all they'd find are seven pictures of my friend's puppy and one of a cool-looking snail I saw on the sidewalk. But still, I would feel so violated.
"You kind of get freaked out, like, who's watching what you're doing for anything whether you're a celebrity or not. And, the weirdest part was, like, I saw that, like, my insurance card or something they had, songs from my album that haven't been released yet. It’s a little weird."
Before Julianne, Blake Lively had her cell phone hacked, with her people initially trying to claim it wasn't her but an imposter. After absolutely no one was buying it, they didn't out rightly admit it was her, but they stopped denying. Unlike Hough, Lively's photos were definitely rated R. And I really wanted to judge her for them, but I was mostly thinking, "Jesus, I need to work out."
Vanessa Hudgens was also the victim of a leaked photo scandal earlier this year. But by now, Vanessa's an old pro. She might as well have her cell phone camera wired to the video screens at Times Square.
"Nothing is private," Hudgens said of the leak. "Everyone knows everything, and they can find out everything about you. You're not as safe as you think you are, and you have to be aware of the people you're around."
There you go, ladies. Hopefully this will help you learn an important lesson about taking naked pictures of yourself—use Polaroids.
