After Lebanese skier Jackie Chamoun’s leaked topless photos caused literal riots on Feb. 13, we at Hollywood Life were reminded of a few other stars whose naked pictures started serious controversies.
We’ve been in this business long enough to not be surprised when a star has naked pictures leak — it’s just part of the game. So with Jackie Chamoun, a 22-year-old Lebanese Olympic skier, joining the club on Feb. 13, we’re counting down the seven biggest scandals involving nude photos.
Jackie Chamoun, Miley Cyrus & More Shocking Nude Scandals
7. Jackie Chamoun
Jackie bared it all for the lifestyle magazine Beiruting, and her naked body was revealed in a racy behind-the-scenes video that hit YouTube on Feb. 13. She makes the list because of the timing — a naked Olympic skier has nude pics leak during the Winter Olympics — and because of the uproar the pictures caused. First, Lebanese Caretaker Youth and Sports Minister Faisal Karami condemned the photos and Jackie, which caused a backlash of its own, as thousands spoke out in support of the skier, and fellow Lebanese athletes began posting pictures of themselves “naked” in protest.

Rihanna had naked cell phone selfies leak online in 2009. It seemed like a really big deal at the time, though now after years of RiRi posting even raunchier pictures on her own Instagram, it doesn’t feel quite as momentous.
5. Scarlett Johansson
Scarlett’s phone was hacked in 2011 and a photo of her taking a nude picture in front of a mirror hit the internet as a result. How big of a deal was this? Well, the guy who hacked Scarlett is now serving a 10-year sentence in federal prison.
4. Blake Lively
Blake also fell victim to a cell phone hacker in 2011 (what a year for naked pics!) and seventeen pictures were posted on the internet. The pics show the Gossip Girl star in many states of undress — she was apparently a big fan of the mirror selfie back then. Blake lands this high on the list just because of the sheer volume of her leak.
3. Dylan Sprouse
The only guy to make the list, Dylan had naked pics — showing everything — come out in late December 2013 when an ex-girlfriend tweeted them to get revenge. And they’re crazy — not only did they show every centimeter of the Disney star’s manhood, but in one picture Dylan was caught with a gross, suspicious substance on his chest. Um.
1 & 2. Vanessa Hudgens & Miley Cyrus
Technically, Vanessa and Miley should be tied for first, because they’re nude scandals all have the same elements. They were both extremely young — Miley was 16 and Vanessa was 19 when their photos leaked — and were both signs that the Disney girls were growing up. Though Miley has come a pretty long way since her naked pics hit the internet in 2008, these two scandals were absolutely ground-shaking at the time.
