"Mad Men" actress Christina Hendricks has become another Hollywood victim of phone-hacking, but says that the nude photographs revealed are not her.
A representative of the red-haired actress told TMZ that the topless woman in photos leaked online Sunday are not 36-year-old Hendricks' pictures.
The rep confirmed that Hendricks' phone was hacked, and while some pictures reveal the actress without makeup and scantily clad, the bare-breasted images are not hers.
Hendricks' rep went on to insist that the topless photo features a Hendricks impostor.
The Tennessee native portrays Joan Holloway in the AMC hit television series "Mad Men." Hendricks is married to actor Geoffrey Arend. A poll taken by Esquire magazine of female readers named her "the sexiest woman in the world." The fifth season of "Mad Men" begins March 25.
Along with reports of Hendricks' incident Sunday, Olivia Munn has also become a victim of phone hacking and false rumors of nude photos on the same day.
The "Parks and Recreation" actress is purportedly the woman in several revealing photos, but Munn took to Twitter clearing the air.
"If you ever hacked my phone, these are the pictures you'd find," wrote the actress, including funny pictures of a cat and of a baby.
Phone hackings are nothing new for many of today's celebrities. Stars such as Scarlett Johansson, Jessica Alba, Miley Cyrus, and Mila Kunis were a part of a phone-hacking scandal last year. The person responsible for the hacking was Christopher Chaney, 35, of Jacksonville. Fla.
According to the FBI, the hacker responsible did it for thrill.
Also named in the case against Chaney were celebrities Paris Hilton, Ali Larter, Selena Gomez, and many others.
A major phone-hacking ordeal in the U.K., known as the "News of the World" tabloid scandal, resulted in the breakdown of Rupert Murdoch's media empire. Cell phone hackers had invaded the lives of celebrities, politicians, as well as family members of murder victims.
