Willow Shields, best known for her role as Primrose Everdeen in The Hunger Games films, was forced to share a nude photo of herself after being ‘blackmailed’.
The 22-year-old star took to Instagram and shared a revealing photo of herself, explaining to fans that she was being ‘blackmailed and extorted’ for nude selfies.
In the photo, Willow can be seen posing in front of a mirror without any clothes on.
The actress said the images were “something private that was never meant to be shared with the whole world.”
But sharing her reason why she decided to post the photo, she said: “I’m taking back the control and sharing it with you first. Here’s the photo they emailed and attached threatening to share with my friends, family, and the internet. They claim to have many more ‘less tame’ photos to use against me.”
She continued: “I will not let someone else make choices involving my own body. I will not allow someone to have power over me.”
Willow said that she has reported the case to the FBI and she hoped that officers will investigate the matter seriously.
Her post has received thousands of praises, with one fan commenting: “You are absolutely beautiful Willow. You’re doing an incredible thing here, do not let anyone tell you differently.”
Another wrote: “Shame on them. But no shame to you! Keep up that mindset, you deserve to be respected and have privacy.”
A third said: “I hope you get justice against this hacker and that they’ll be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. The FBI needs to crack down hard against these hackers.”
Someone else added: “I remember when Jennifer’s (Lawrence) photos were leaked when she was pretty much the same age, almost 10 years ago. It’s sick that this is still an issue.”
