Former Doctor Who star Matt Smith and his ex-girlfriend Daisy Lowe appear to have become the latest victims of hackers who have leaked naked photographs of the pair online.

They join a long list of stars including Avril Lavigne, Cat Deeley and Rihanna whose pictures were said to have been posted online.

Smith, who quit his role as the timelord last year, dated former model Lowe for several years but the pair have since split up.

This week, Hollywood star Jennifer Lawrence broke her silence to hit out at the leak of the naked pictures.

The Oscar-winner, one of the most high-profile victims of the hacking of hundreds of explicit images of Hollywood actresses, said it was a “sex crime”.

She told Vanity Fair magazine that anyone who looked at the images “should cower with shame”.

The 24-year-old told the magazine that she started to write a statement, but realised she had nothing to apologise for.

“I was in a loving, healthy, great relationship for four years,” she said. “It was long distance, and either your boyfriend is going to look at porn or he’s going to look at you.”

She told Vanity Fair: “Just because I’m a public figure, just because I’m an actress, does not mean that I asked for this.

“It does not mean that it comes with the territory. It’s my body, and it should be my choice, and the fact that it is not my choice is absolutely disgusting. I can’t believe that we even live in that kind of world.”

She called for a change in the law to prevent more leaks and added: “It is not a scandal. It is a sex crime. It is a sexual violation. It’s disgusting.”

Lawrence said of those who carried out the hacking: “I just can’t imagine being that detached from humanity. I can’t imagine being that thoughtless and careless and so empty inside.”

She added: “Anybody who looked at those pictures, you’re perpetuating a sexual offence.”

The US star, who is said to be dating Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, told the November issue of the magazine that one of the most excruciating moments was having to call her father to tell him about the hacking.

“I don’t care how much money I get for The Hunger Games,” she said. “I promise you, anybody given the choice of that kind of money or having to make a phone call to tell your dad that something like that has happened, it’s not worth it.”

She joked: “Fortunately, he was playing golf, so he was in a good mood.”
