Helen Mirren insulted by nude photo hack snub

DAME Helen Mirren has told how she was 'insulted' not to have been a victim of the iCloud hacking which saw 101 female celebrities have their nude and explicit photos leaked online.

The 69-year-old actress, who won an Oscar for her portrayal in The Queen (2006), said she was disappointed not to be among those targeted because "you weren't anybody if your phone hadn't been hacked".

Her comments come after nude images of up to 101 famous faces including Hunger Games actress Jennifer Lawrence, model Cara Delevingne and former Downton Abbey star Jessica Brown Findlay were circulated on the internet.

In an interview with Magic FM, to be broadcast tomorrow, Dame Helen said: "I was rather insulted my phone wasn't hacked, actually.

"I kept desperately looking at the list of people whose phones were hacked, hoping to see my name.
