Kirsten Dunst was one of the many celebs whose nude photos were hacked during the now-infamous nude scandal of a few weeks ago. Although the situation would have been awful for anyone to face, Dunst said she is just trying to move on from it.
“I try to have a sense of humor about a really unfortunate situation,” Dunst told Us Weekly. “The FBI is investigating, so they’re handling it right now.”
Soon after the celebs had their photos stolen, Dunst tweeted about the incident with a clever blend of emoticons.
Thank you iCloud🍕💩

(If you sound it out, it sounds sort of like “piece of s***” — clever girl.)
The FBI said they are “addressing” the allegations and it looks like many of the victims are working with authorities in an attempt to catch whoever hacked into their technology. Dunst, along with Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton, Krysten Ritter, Teresa Palmer, Becca Tobin, Hope Solo and others found their privacy violated in the hack.
Because Apple also operates iCloud, where many of the photos were held, they assured everyone that they are also investigating.
“After more than 40 hours of investigation, we have discovered that certain celebrity accounts were compromised by a very targeted attack on user names, passwords and security questions, a practice that has become all too common on the Internet,” Apple said in a statement soon after the incident. “None of the cases we have investigated has resulted from any breach in any of Apple’s systems including iCloud or Find my iPhone. We are continuing to work with law enforcement to help identify the criminals involved.”
Dunst will be starring next in The Two Faces of January with Viggo Mortensen, which is expected out in theaters Sept. 26.
