Stasey makes nude images statement

In an act of defiance against cyber hackers, one actress has taken matters into her own hands a posted nude photos of herself online.

Caitlin Stasey has put the pictures on her website, herself.com, and other women are also able to contribute their own snaps.

The former Neighbours star says she set up the site in the wake of thousands of personal photos of celebrities - including Hunger Games actress Jennifer Lawrence - being leaked after their iCloud accounts were hacked.

Stasey, who appears in American historical fiction drama, Reign, told the Sunday Telegraph's Stella magazine she had always been "scared" of naked pictures she sent ex-boyfriends becoming public.

"Now I've nothing to worry about because everything I am is everywhere," she said.

Referring to what Lawrence had been through, the 24-year-old continued: "I thought it was disgusting. Nobody deserves to have their images displayed without their consent.

"To say (Lawrence) deserves to have them released because she took them in the first place is the same a saying a woman deserves to have her clothes ripped off in public because she has had sex once."
