Ashley Greene could use a lesson in public relations... as well as in getting dressed.
The Twilight Saga actress is the latest in a very long line of young beauties to have naked photos leaked online.
Soon after the scandal broke, and responsible celebrity gossip blogs delivered the news to the ever-curious public, Greene's lawyer spoke out. He said:
"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."
There are two problems with this kind of statement:
- It verifies that the naive star really did pose naked at some point;
- It simply brings attention to the story, as the Internet will now be buzzing with searches for "Ashley Greene nude" and "Ashley Greene pictures."
By this time tomorrow, there's a good chance we'll have received a letter from Greene's attorney and it will cite our violation of the actress' "reasonable expectation of privacy." We'll remove the photos when asked, as as don't wish to cause any problems.
But can she really cling to such a claim?
Does the Internet afford one such an expectation, especially if she admits she posed for the pics and placed them into the online universe? These are interesting legal and philosophical question, but the conclusion remains the same:
Unless you're leaking the images for professional purposes (hello, Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian!), keep your clothes on, ladies.
