Olivia Munn, Christina Hendricks deny nude photos are of them

Olivia Munn and Mad Men‘s Christina Hendricks are the latest female stars to deal with alleged naked photo leaks. Both actresses deny the shots, which hit the Internet over the weekend, are of them.

Munn’s rep tells EW Munn’s phone was not hacked. That echoes Munn’s only statement on the matter, which she posted to Twitter Sunday night: “If you ever hacked my phone, these are the pictures you’d find:” The link leads to photos of a large baby and a cat reading.

Hendricks’ phone was hacked, her rep confirms. But while some of the leaked photos of her wearing lingerie are real, the topless shot is most definitely not, the rep claims. “Christina’s phone was in fact hacked and photos were stolen. The proper authorities have been contacted in hopes of rectifying this unfortunate situation. The topless image is fake and not an image of Christina,” the rep says in a statement. READ FULL STORY

Jennifer Aniston to get star on Hollywood Walk of Fame


It may not be as high an honor as the “hottest woman of all time” nod she received from Men’s Health last year, but Jennifer Aniston will be granted her very own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame next week. The former Friends star, whose new film Wanderlust opens next weekend, will receive her star on Wednesday, Feb. 22. The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce  maintains the Walk of Fame, and the price of sponsoring a new star is $30,000.

For her role on Friends as Rachel Green, Aniston received five Emmy nominations, two SAG Awards, and two Golden Globe nominations. She has since starred in numerous films, including Rumor Has It, The Good Girl, and The Break Up. Fun fact: Aniston’s godfather, actor Telly Savalas, received his Walk of Fame star in 1983.

'19 Kids and Counting' blackmail case -- Amy Duggar responds

News broke today that Iowa resident Teresa Hunt was arrested for attempting to extort $10,000 from TLC and/or force the network to shut down its show 19 Kids and Counting, starring Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar and their massive family. Hunt claimed to have scandalous photos of “rebellious” (by Duggar standards) cousin and aspiring musician Amy Duggar with an older man.

EW contacted TLC, who could not comment on the situation. Amy Duggar, however, has issued this statement: “It’s totally untrue. James is a long time family friend who has always been supportive of my music career.  He’s a good Christian and it’s upsetting that his generosity has been exploited like this.”
