Kaley Cuoco has come up with a clever way to make sure that hackers never get their cheese puff-stained hands on her nude photos ever again, and it’s a neat trick straight out of the ’80s.
Celebrities and social media users love Instagram because it gives their photos that retro, fuzzy feel. However, now stars like Kaley Cuoco are trading filters and digital cameras for the devices that inspired Instagram: clunky Polaroid cameras.
According to the Guardian, Kaley recently endorsed the automatic cameras. As the Inquisitr previously reported, The Big Bang Theory star was one of the victims of The Fappening, a massive leak of nude photos that targeted dozens of celebrities. Cuoco responded to having her nude photos leaked on the web with the humorous photo and Instagram caption below. She also dragged hubby Ryan Sweeting into the nude photo scandal.
What a fun day that was, frolicking with my hubs on the beaches of Mexico! Feels like we forgot something?”
That will likely be the last “nude photo” you’ll ever see of Kaley Cuoco. The Big Bang Theory actress recently proclaimed that she’s going to stop saving naughty photos on her phone.
Polaroids are the way to go. No one can get those.”
During an interview with Extra, Kaley offered additional advice for those considering snapping nude photos of themselves.
Don’t take naked photos. That would be a good start. How about that? Just so everyone knows a lot of those were not real, a lot were completely fake, if you look closely… Just don’t take pictures. I’ve now taken to Polaroid cameras, so I just carry a big Polaroid around my neck, self-aroid, that’s what I do now.”
The only problem with this method of taking photos is that she’d have to send Ryan Sweeting nude selfies of herself via snail mail whenever she’s away from him for long periods of time.
Kaley Cuoco isn’t the only celebrity fan of the Polaroid. According to the Guardian, Miley Cyrus, Lana Del Rey, and singer FKA Twigs (Robert Pattinson’s girlfriend) have also embraced the cameras that spit out memories. The Polaroid company has reportedly seen “a 75% increase in the 18-25 demographic,” and those numbers are expected to keep growing.
However, everyone who has embraced the Polaroid isn’t planning on pulling a Kaley Cuoco by using the camera to snap nude photos for their significant other. Freelance photographer Stephanie Sian Smith believes that young people are just feeling nostalgic, and they really love the way old film looks (hence the popularity of Instagram).
The cameras look cool and the pictures remind us of something from the past.”
Taylor Swift’s extremely successful 1989 album paid homage to the classic camera with washed-out, Polaroid-inspired artwork, and Lady Gaga actually teamed up with the Polaroid company in 2010. Mama Monster was hired to serve as the company’s creative director for a line of specialty products, but last month PR Week reported that she and Polaroid recently parted ways. Gaga’s product line was supposed to include high-tech gadgets like camera glasses, not the classic Polaroids young people and other celebrities are currently embracing.
What do you think of Kaley Cuoco’s plan to keep hackers from sharing her nude photos with the entire world?
