Amanda Seyfried has become one of several actresses to face unwanted drama this week.
TMZ reported on Wednesday that the legal team of the 31-year-old actress sent a cease and desist letter to Celeb Jihad, demanding they immediately take down personal photos of the star.
According to the note published by the celebrity news site, the private pictures were obtained without authorization and several include Seyfried “either in various states of nudity or in intimate moments with her former boyfriend.”
“We are not making any comments at this time,” said the office of Frankfurt Kurnit Klein & Selz to Fox News on the reported dispute.
The letter warned the celebrity softcore porn site that if they don’t immediately take the photos down, the firm “will take any and all appropriate steps to protect and enforce our client’s right,” including legal action.
In an unrelated case from Seyfried’s, Emma Watson is taking legal action after dozen of private images of her trying on various outfits were stolen and posted online.
“Photos from a clothes fitting Emma had with a stylist a couple of years ago have been stolen,” wrote the 26-year-old’s publicist to Fox News. “They are not nude photographs. Lawyers have been instructed and we are not commenting further.”
Earlier this week, Mischa Barton’s lawyer sent out a warning to anyone potentially shopping around nude footage of the actress.
“It has been reported that naked or sexually explicit images of Ms. Barton are being ‘shopped around,’” attorney Lisa Bloom wrote in a statement released via Twitter on Tuesday. “Ms. Barton does not consent to any disclosure of any such images. She believes that she was recorded without her consent by someone she was seeing at the time.”
The letter continues, “There’s a name for this disgusting conduct: revenge pornography. Revenge pornography is a form of sexual assault, and it is also a crime and civil wrong in California. And we will not stand for it.”
The statement came a day after the Daily Mail reported that an X-rated video of the 31-year-old “O.C.” actress was being offered to the highest bidder, starting at $500,000.
Bloom warned that she and her client would go after anyone who “attempts to traffic” the photos or videos.
“I am very proud to represent actress Mischa Barton, who is courageously standing up for her rights,” Bloom wrote, ending the letter with a final word of warning: “You proceed at your peril.”
