LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- “New Moon” star Ashley Greene is firing back after naked photos of the actress were leaked online Monday.
“The photos in question, which appear to be of our client, are illegal and are being unlawfully displayed. Our client intends to take legal action,” a spokesperson for the actress said in a statement to Access Hollywood.
The racy photos, which appear to show the “New Moon” star topless and, in another, fully nude, appeared online one day after Ashley picked up the Choice Fresh Face Female award at the 2009 Teen Choice Awards.
Overall, it was a big night for Ashley, 22, and her “Twilight” cohorts, as they took home 11 awards altogether.
However, Ashley isn’t the only young star currently caught up in a nude photo scandal.
A set of nude photos of “High School Musical” and “Bandslam” star Vanessa Hudgens circulated online last week. It was the second set of racy photos of the actress to be leaked in the past few years.
