(USA TODAY) -- J. Law is calling on the law after nude photos of her surfaced on the internet Sunday.

The photos first appeared on image sharing site 4Chan.

"This is a flagrant violation of privacy," Lawrence's reps Bryna Rifkin and Liz Mahoney said in a statement. "The authorities have been contacted and will prosecute anyone who posts the stolen photos of Jennifer Lawrence."

Other celebs targeted in the leak include: Kate Upton, Victoria Justice, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Ariana Grande and Kirsten Dunst.

Justice took to Twitter to deny the authenticity of her photos:

    These so called nudes of me are FAKE people. Let me nip this in the bud right now. *pun intended*

But Winstead scolded those who looked at her shots, and said she felt for the other stars affected.

    To those of you looking at photos I took with my husband years ago in the privacy of our home, hope you feel great about yourselves.
    — Mary E. Winstead (@M_E_Winstead) August 31, 2014

    Knowing those photos were deleted long ago, I can only imagine the creepy effort that went into this. Feeling for everyone who got hacked.

The authenticity of the other photos has not been verified. No word yet on how the provocative photos made it to the web.
