Lena Headey's naked bod was finally unleashed on the "Game of Thrones" set -- sort of -- but producers racked up a $50,000/day tab to shoot the scene ... and keep it under wraps.
According to our GoT spies ... more than 200 security guards were hired to protect the set while shooting the "Walk of Shame" scene -- where Lena's character Cersei walks stark naked out of a church and through town. We're told the 4-day shoot in Croatia got so pricey because of the added crew -- and producers having to pay local shop owners to shut down and leave the area.
Cell phones were banned on set so photos wouldn't get leaked (oops!) -- and everyone signed confidentiality agreements that threatened $250,000 lawsuits for violators.
It's been a bitch to get this far. We broke the story ... the whole scene was nearly called off when church leaders banned any nude shoots. They ended up shooting on the other side of town.
As for who actually witnessed Lena, au naturel -- we're told only 4 key crew members were present for the unveiling.
Hackers Get Their First Male Victim
10/5/2014 12:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Nick Hogan just became the first male celebrity to have his naked photos hacked in the iCloud scandal.
The photos that were hacked are voluminous and graphic. There are pics going back to his high school escapades, various girlfriends in various states of undress and sexual positions, penis pics and stuff like that.
The weirdest hack ... there are 2 photos of Nick's mom Linda in a thong, bent over and showing off her butt. Nick says those pics were NOT in his iCloud!
And here's the dark side. Nick kept pics of several girlfriends during his teenage years, and the girls were underage at the time. He believes the hackers are playing with fire because they constitute child porn. As for why Nick kept the pics ... he says he's kept almost everything from his life that was recorded or photographed.
Nick claims -- just like some of the female celebs -- some of the pics are not his ... notably the penis pic.

Still, Jackie says Doug was so mad about the debacle, that "[he] almost left me."
Check out the clip ... Jackie blames the whole thing on an Instagram screw-up -- but her story seems a bit fishy.
We'll explain why on the premiere of "TMZ Hollywood Sports" -- which airs TONIGHT on Reelz at 8PM ET, 5PM PT.

Early Sunday AM two nude pictures that appear to be RiRi were leaked onto 4chan/Reddit ... one with a censored version of her breasts ... the other pic showing bare ass and slight nipple. The uncensored photo was released hours later.

Gabrielle Union says she was the victim of a digital hate crime ... after some topless photos she sent to Dwyane Wade somehow leaked onto the internet -- and now her legal team will be contacting the FBI.
Union and Wade released a joint statement saying, "it has come to our attention that our private moments, that were shared and deleted solely between my husband and myself, have been leaked by some vultures."

Topless pics of what appears to be super model Emily Ratajkowski and Jenny McCarthy also leaked online today -- as well as nude photos that appear to be Kate Bosworth and Lake Bell.
Union and Wade add, "For anyone out there also being affected by these and other hacking and hate crimes - We send our love, support and prayers. We have done nothing wrong."

Nick Jonas learned, when in Rome ... because he joined the crowd at a gay bar with some half naked men and became somewhat naked himself.
Nick teased the crowd at BPM's Gay College Tuesday's in NYC ... coyly leading the excited crowd into believing A LOT was about to come off. He stopped short of the full monty, but still did not disappoint.
He was there to promote his new single but had the urge to jump on stage with a bunch of shirtless dudes.

So, yeah ... Miley won the night.
Celeb Nude Leaks
Reddit Bans the Fappening
We're Trying to Stop This!
9/7/2014 9:16 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Reddit is stepping up its game to stop hackers from leaking stolen nude celebrity photos -- by shutting down the area of the site where the pics were posted.
Reddit vaguely says the pics violate its policies. It seems like it's referring to the alleged underage photos of McKayla Maroney that were posted on the Fappening ... as well as illegally obtained naked pics of celebs like Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton and Victoria Justice.
The site admins say, "While current US law does not prohibit linking to stolen materials, we deplore the theft of these images and we do not condone their widespread distribution."
For what it's worth ... the guy who runs the Fappening says he's not happy about Reddit's decision.

Celebrity Nude Photo Leak
Is on the Case!
9/1/2014 2:02 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The celebrity nude photo leak scandal has reached a boiling point ... and now the FBI is getting involved.
In a statement released Monday afternoon, a spokesperson for the FBI said, "The FBI is aware of the allegations concerning computer intrusions and the unlawful release of material involving high profile individuals, and is addressing the matter. Any further comment would be inappropriate at this time."
Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton -- the two most prominent names in the leak -- have both expressed interest in pursuing legal action in the matter.
An Apple spokesperson told Recode.net they are "active investigating" whether or not their iCloud system was hacked as part of this leak.
Kirsten Dunst became the latest celeb featured in the leak to comment via Twitter, placing the blame squarely on Apple's shoulders (while also acknowledging the photos are real). She simply wrote, "Thank you iCloud."
