P rivacy is a privilege. It is rarely enjoyed by women or transgender men and women, queer people or people of color. When you are an Other, you are always in danger of having your body or some other intimate part of yourself exposed in one way or another. A group of teenagers driving by as a person of color walks on a sidewalk shout racial slurs, interrupting their quiet. For most people, privacy is little more than an illusion, one we create so we can feel less vulnerable as we move through the world, so we can believe some parts of ourselves are sacred and free from uninvited scrutiny. The further away you are from living as a white, heterosexual, middle-class man, the less privacy you enjoy — the more likely your illusions of privacy will be shattered when you least expect it. For celebrities, privacy is utterly nonexistent. You are asked intrusive questions about your personal life.

Why Curb Your Enthusiasm?
You wait for movie stars, but if it's Jennifer Lawrence you don't mind. It's like waiting for a comet to come hurtling into view. She was due to arrive by the pool on the roof of L'Ermitage hotel, in Beverly Hills.

The Hunger Games star is believed to feature on a large collection of images which were stolen from her iCloud account. A collection of more than 60 photographs allegedly showing Jennifer Lawrence naked and in sexy lingerie is now circulating online. This afternoon a user on the anonymous website 4chan posted a thread with a link to a separate site containing the entire set of photographs stolen from the Oscar winning actress. While many of the images have been confirmed by her rep as being real, it is not known if the others are of her, although the woman in the snaps bares a striking resemblance to the Hollywood beauty. Some of the images show Jennifer trying on clothes, sat on the floor on a bathroom, and seemingly in hair and make-up on a film set. But most of the shots are explicit and show a brunette woman engaging in sexual acts, posing fully nude and in raunchy underwear. A short GIF video clip of just a few seconds also shows a woman who looks like Jennifer carrying out a sexual act on a man. Her publicist is yet to confirm the authenticity of the clip and the other images. The thread disappeared from 4chan, where this weekend's updates are being dubbed 'The Fappening: The Second Coming', but the link to the photographs still works.
