The long list of victims also includes singer Ariana Grande, Nickelodeon star Victoria Justice and Oscar-winner Jennifer Lawrence.

"This is a flagrant violation of privacy. The authorities have been contacted and will prosecute anyone who posts the stolen photos of Jennifer Lawrence," Lawrence's spokesperson also said in a statement.

Celebrity blogger Perez Hilton is one of those who posted the naked photos of Lawrence on his website on Sunday, but later removed them and apologized via Twitter.

"I acted in haste just to get the post up and didn't really think things through. I'm sorry," he tweeted. "At work we often have to make quick decisions. I made a really bad one today and then made it worse. I feel awful and am truly sorry."

He added: "Upon further reflection and just sitting with my actions, I don't feel comfortable even keeping the censored photos up. I am removing them."

Actress Mary E. Winstead, whose privacy was also tampered with, expressed her anger on Twitter.

"To those of you looking at photos I took with my husband years ago in the privacy of our home, hope you feel great about yourselves," she wrote.

"Knowing those photos were deleted long ago, I can only imagine the creepy effort that went into this. Feeling for everyone who got hacked."
