It isn’t known how the website actually got the pictures, but lawyers for the Harry Potter actress claim that it was her stylist who took them.

Team Watson have argued that she owns the full copyright to the snaps and has every right to get them removed with immediate effect.

TMZ revealed that the images vanished from Celeb Jihad after they received the letter.

What’s worse is that the site set up a countdown to release nude snaps of her. As you can imagine, Emma was fuming.

Talking during a trip to Facebook HQ, the 26-year-old beauty said: “After I gave my speech [at the UN] there was a website threatening to release naked pictures of me.

“I knew it was a hoax, I knew the pictures didn’t exist, but I think a lot of people that were close to me knew gender equality was an issue but didn’t think it was that urgent, that it was a thing of the past.

“And then when they saw that the minute I stood up talking about women’s rights I was immediately threatened, I think they were really shocked, my brother was particularly upset.

“I was raging, it made me so angry, I was like, this is why I have to be doing this. If anything, if they were trying to put me off it, it did the opposite.”

A lesson has been learned here. Do not steal what isn’t yours, especially not half-naked photos of Emma Watson.
