Leave it to Katniss Everdeen – er, Jennifer Lawrence – to lead a revolution.

After nude photos of the actress were allegedly stolen from her iCloud account, J.Law is defending her rights, with her rep confirming that she’s pursuing her legal options.

“This is a flagrant violation of privacy,” a spokesperson for the star tells HuffPost. “The authorities have been contacted and will prosecute anyone who posts the stolen photos of Jennifer Lawrence.”

In addition to Lawrence and fellow victim Kate Upton’s statements about their intent to sue, others affected by the leak are opening up about the situation and changing the way people respond.

Kirsten Dunst confirmed that her images were taken, writing “Thank you iCloud,” while Olympian McKayla Maroney and Nickelodeon stars Ariana Grande and Victoria Justice denied the veracity of their photos.

Fellow actress Mary Elizabeth Winstead (“The Spectacular Now”) expressed her feelings thusly:

“To those of you looking at photos I took with my husband years ago in the privacy of our home, hope you feel great about yourselves,” she wrote. “Knowing those photos were deleted long ago, I can only imagine the creepy effort that went into this. Feeling for everyone who got hacked.”

Other stars have been criticized for taking nude photos in the past, but the tide seems to be turning to some degree un. The situation spawned a new hashtag, “#ImNotLooking,” in support of these stars and their violated privacy.

Numerous other stars and fans have already expressed their support:
