Actress says hackers hijacked Twitter account

EMMA Stone has revealed hackers have taken over her account and posted a series of tweets in her name.

Fans of the 24-year-old actress were worried when a tweet was made from her account, an anagram for "Andrew and Shailene sitting in a tree", which appeared to claim her boyfriend Andrew Garfield was cheating on her with their Amazing Spider-Man 2 co-star Shailene Woodley.

However Emma has revealed hackers have taken over her Twitter and she has been unable to stop them from tweeting in her name.

In an interview for On Air With Ryan Seacrest, she explained: "I have never tweeted, my friend. I've tweeted one time to Seth MacFarlane. I said, 'Me too, oh boy'.

"And then I've been hacked ever since, and they've locked me out of my Twitter so I can't access it because they changed my email and my password, so we are trying to figure out how to delete it."

"I heard the other day they tweeted an anagram about Shailene Woodley, who is one of my favourite human beings on the planet, and that was absolutely, I swear to you, was not me."

Emma also revealed it was only when the tweet about Shailene and Andrew made headlines that she found out she had been hacked.

She said: "That was the first one I heard. And then I heard there was a rich history of other things I've tweeted and deleted, and I didn't know about any of this happening because I don't go on Twitter."
