Nude photos of Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence, as well as those purportedly showing other top Hollywood stars, were posted online in an apparent massive hacking leak.

An anonymous hacker reportedly gained access to private photos on the Hunger Games actress’s mobile phone, and those of 100 others, viaApple's online storage system iCloud.

The 60-odd pictures of Lawrence in varying stages of undress were then posted on the bulletin board website 4chan.

More than 100 A-list celebrities are alleged to have been targeted, including reality TV star Kim Kardashian, singer Rihanna, models Candice Swanepoel, Cara Delevingne and Kelly Brook, and TV host Cat Deeley.

A spokesman for Lawrence confirmed the photos were real, saying the police had been contacted and they would prosecute anyone who posts the stolen pictures.

Final Destination actress Mary E. Winstead also confirmed she had been a victim of the hacker.

“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 on her Twitter account.

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