Jennifer Lawrence

A-lister and Academy Award winner Jennifer Lawrence was one of the most prominent names in the case, with her photos splashed across phones and laptops internationally for months. She has since become an outspoken activist for privacy laws.

Kim Kardashian

The reality star has shown her body numerous times via her social media accounts, but she too was hacked, revealing even more nudes that had previously been unpublished.

Kate Upton

The supermodel and Sports Illustrated cover girl was the victim of the hack as well, with her nude photos scattered throughout the internet.


The provocative pop star is not shy when it comes to nudity, but even her previous released nude photos paled in comparison to the 2016 hack.

Avril Lavigne

The Canadian singer has kept a relatively low profile since breaking on to the music scene at the turn of the century. She returned to the spotlight, however, once nudes of her in compromising positions surfaced on the internet.

Gabrielle Union

The ‘Being Mary Jane’ star was also targeted in the scandal, with nudes of her surfacing on many internet websites for several weeks.

Kirsten Dunst

She made the transition from child actress to leading lady with ease, but Dunst too was a victim of the scandal, her photos included along other celebrities in newspaper worldwide.
