A day of heated denials by her reps, which most Web sites dutifully reported, apparently prompted the hacker to retaliate with more than a dozen new photos of Lively, or someone who looks remarkably like her, according to gossip site TMZ.
“Oh, yes, Blake’s rep. These are totally fake. We really, really believe you. Want moar? BTW, thanks for all the fats,” the hacker taunted.
The unnamed hacker disputed claims that the photos were digitally manipulated to look like Lively. Not that it hasn’t happened before.
The Evidence So Far…
Mole(s): Blake has similar looking skin.
Body: If that’s not Lively’s smokin’ body, the woman in the photo is doing her a favor. But Blake has a rockin body just like that.
iPhone: Blake has one, with a similar case (documented in photos). The phone, however, is ubiquitous. What celebrity doesn’t have one?
Toothbrush: Say What? Yes, apparently in some of the pics, a Reach Design toothbrush can be seen. Blake actually has one, according to some sites. A strange coincidence, again, perhaps, but they do add up.
Tattoos: The woman in some of the photos has tattoos. Blake isn’t known to have any tattoos. But her character in “The Town” had star tattoos on her upper-chest area, just like the photos.
A purportedly nude photo of Emma Watson circulated around her Brown University campus last year, but it turned out that her head had been grafted onto another woman’s body.
In fact, celebrity nude fakes are so widespread on the Internet, Web sites are devoted to them.
But a number of actresses–Rihanna, Ashley Greene, Vanessa Hudgens — have also had real nude photos leak onto the web.
They are usually self-taken with a camera phone in a bathroom, and the Lively photos fit the bill.
The hacker posted 17 additional photos of a nude woman whom the hacker insists is Blake.
Blake’s reps, however, told TMZ the person pictured is not the 23-year-old actress.
Two of the pics show a woman clothed, holding the exact same iPhone that appears in the nude photos.
But several of the nude pics show a woman’s body with tattoos. The face is not shown, and Blake is not known to have tattoos.

Lively is currently on a European vacation with her rumoured new boyfriend Leonardo DiCaprio. The pair were spotted enjoying a series of romantic dates on the French Riviera this week.
The couple were spotted holding hands on a street in Monte Carlo, looking very much like a couple. An Us source says that DiCaprio “introduced Blake as his girlfriend.”
She appears in the upcoming action-adventure movie “Green Lantern,” opposite Ryan Reynolds later this summer. It hits theaters June 17.
Thanks to the photo controversy, the film is now almost a must see. Smart marketing?
