Seth Rogen has urged people not to post the naked photos stolen from Jennifer Lawrence's phone.

The 'Knocked Up' star is disgusted by the leak of explicit images of the Oscar-winning actress and is adamant that what has happened to Jennifer should not be “tolerated”.

Seth - who is married to Lauren Miller - posted on Twitter: “Posting pics hacked from someone's cellphone is really no different than selling stolen merchandise.

“I obviously am not comparing women to merchandise. Just legally speaking, it shouldn't be tolerated to repost stolen pics.”

Jennifer, 24, is among 100 celebrities who have had photos, video and other personal files stolen from their Apple iCloud accounts by hackers.

Several pics of 'The Hunger Games' star in various sexual poses were posted on the 4chan image sharing forum and have been shared on various social media sites and other websites.

Naked images of Sports Illustrated model Kate Upton have also hit the web, while Rihanna, Kim Kardashian West, Winona Ryder, Selena Gomes and Lea Michele are among the stars listed as having had their iCloud accounts hacked.

Following the release of the images, a spokesperson for Jennifer said: “This is a flagrant violation of privacy. The authorities have been contacted and will prosecute anyone who posts the stolen photos of Jennifer Lawrence.” - Bang ShowBiz
