Christina Hendricks, Olivia Munn, Scarlett Johansson: 22 Famous Leaked Cell Phone Pics That Stopped All Office Productivity
This past Sunday, naughty cell phone pictures of both Mad Men's redheaded bombshell Christina Hendricks and television personality Olivia Munn leaked onto the Internet. No, they weren't together in the photos -- Dear God -- these were separate leaks.
Two of the most lusted after female celebs, Hendricks for ya know those, and Munn for her bubbly public persona and ability to wear a bikini, they almost immediately decried the criminal invasions of privacy, with Hendricks saying that the most graphic picture was in fact not her. But crack 'net researchers -- dudes with a lot of time on their, er, hands -- unofficially verified that that in fact was her bountiful rack.
At least Hendricks owned up to the other pics. It's kind of hard to say it's not her in the other ones, unless a Hendricks twin is running around the world wild. Munn has denied the photos in her case are actually her, though one of the bikini shots is from a popular Maxim shoot.
These cell phone leaks are almost always the work of hackers who are adept at skirting around pass codes and other security technology to get at the "goods" though I think some can be blamed on jilted lovers or the publicity-hungry celebs themselves. Sports stars and politicians have been careless a lot, with quarterback Brett Favre and New York rep Anthony Weiner both showcasing their ware in leaked pics to female exploits.
That being said, these are criminal acts, but you have to think that people in such high places could think twice before sending nude or compromising pics of themselves to others. Especially when you can be so easily identified through tattoos, like Kanye West and Chris Brown.
When these pics leak they sometimes stop American 9 to 5 office productivity, like when the long sought-after nudes of Scarlett Johansson -- meant for Sean Penn -- leaked online last September, getting right-clicked and saved into eternity. At least Johansson was cool about these getting out and accepted it as an occupational hazard. Now she can be naked in movies and no one will care, though.
Olivia Munn says this isn't "Olivia Munn"
When Lindsay Lohan's Playboy shoot leaked back in December, it was news for two days but then largely went away, along with Hugh Hefner's hopes of a big print payday. But those weren't exactly groundbreaking, seeing that Lohan has been nude or barely-clothed quite a lot since 2005.
Leaked sex videos are different than photos, and they have seemed to dried up, at least when it comes to celebs. Kim Kardashian's tape was the last big one -- pardon the pun -- to hit the web. Not to be too creepily hopeful, but Miley Cyrus seems to be due for one soon with the way her public relations department has been running ragged.
If the Munn and Hendricks shots would have hit during the working week, I can honestly say they would have been a much bigger deal, even though more hilarious Munn photos, with comical sexual comments ("tell me to take it like a BIG GIRL...") continue to wow online tabloids.

Oh Brett, we had such a bigger hopes for you, you know what I mean. Cool watch though.
