The Word: After Mila Kunis, who will grace us with even more hacked photos?

Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis

Days after reports that Mila Kunis’ phone was hacked a la Scarlett Johansson (who would have thought Rupert Murdoch would be such a trendsetter?), the actress and her “Friends with Benefits” co-star, Justin Timberlake, are shrugging off rumors that several steamy photos of the pair were found, according to People magazine. “At no time did Mr. Timberlake and Ms. Kunis exchange inappropriate texts or e-mails,” a joint statement from their reps reads. “The insistence that there is any inappropriate correspondence between the two parties is entirely false.”

One of the alleged photos was said to be of Kunis in a bathtub, while another reportedly showed Timberlake with lingerie on his head. A third photo reportedly featured male genitalia. “We would like to confirm that the photo addressed in the media of Ms. Kunis was in fact not from any phone but from an inactive e-mail account that has not existed in three years,” the statement reads. “In regards to the other photos in question, they were never exchanged between the two parties.”

Welcome to your future: This  trend of hacked celeb naked photos isn’t going away. But what I don’t get is why people have naked photos of themselves on their phone in the first place. This is a thing? Where do they put all the photos of cute dogs and baked goods? Forget Mila Kunis; I want someone to hack Betty White’s cell phone.

Morgan to be married

He might want to take her behind the middle school and get her pregnant, but Tracy Morgan is going to make girlfriend Megan Wallover his wife first. “We got engaged six months ago,” the “30 Rock” star confirmed to E! News’ Ryan Seacrest at the Emmys on Sunday. Wallover, who was by his side at the awards show, says despite Morgan’s reputation for outlandish behavior, the proposal was quite traditional. “We were in San Francisco,” Wallover told Seacrest. “It wasn’t anything crazy. He was on bended knee.”
