Los Angeles, June 18 (IANS) Actress Emma Stone regrets deleting “thousands of emails” after her personal email address and phone number were posted online during the Sony hacking scandal.
The 26-year-old actress “cried for like an hour” after her personal email address and phone number were posted on WikiLeaks during the recent Sony hacking scandal before completely emptying her inbox because she was “just so freaked out” by the idea of someone reading her private messages.
“I did one of the worst things ever, which was react really quickly. In about a 30-second span, I hit ‘Select All’ and ‘Delete Forever’, and thousands of emails, like six years of emails, are now gone forever.”
“I was just so freaked out that someone was in there. It was horrible. I cried for like an hour,” the “Birdman” star told the Wall Street Journal magazine, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
Stone, who recently moved back here from New York City, decided to take action after receiving “probably five emails and five texts” from strangers, but regrets deleting many of the messages even though she was “so overwhelmed” at the time.
She said: “Most of the emails I’m mourning I can still talk to the person and get them back. But there’s others where the person is actually gone. It really sucks.”
