Nude photographs of Twilight star Ashley Greene have hit the Internet – and the actress’s attorney is warning: Post them and you’ll likely get sued.

“The photos in question, which appear to be of our client, are illegal and are being unlawfully displayed,” Greene’s lawyer says in a statement. “Our client intends to take legal action.”

Greene, 22, appeared Sunday at the Teen Choice Awards in Los Angeles, where she picked up the Choice Fresh Face Female award. In total, Twilight netted 11 trophies at the award show.

The actress is the latest starlet involved in a nude photo scandal. Recently, Leighton Meester denied the existence of a long-rumored sex tape. And in 2007, naked photos of Vanessa Hudgens surfaced online, forcing the actress to apologize to her fans.
