Just months after nude images of Jennifer Lawrence were leaked online as part of the "fappening" the Hunger Games star's privacy has been invaded once again.

According to The Daily Beast, emails from the Oscar winner and her legal representatives have been released following the Sony Pictures hack last month.

The messages, not published in full, detail Lawrence's annoyance over being offered less money than her male American Hustle co-stars Bradley Cooper, Christian Bale and Jeremy Renner.

Email correspondences between Sony Pictures co-chair Amy Pascal and Andrew Gumpert, president of business affairs at Columbia Pictures, reveal Lawrence's representatives had been in touch to complain about the pay gap.

"Got a steve warren/Gretchen [Lawrence's lawyers] rush call that it's unfair the male actors get 9% in the pool and jennifer is only at 7pts [percentage of the profits]," the email stated December 5, 2013 reportedly says.

"You may recall Jennifer was at 5 (amy was and is at 7) and WE anted in 2 extra points for Jennifer to get her up to 7. If anyone needs to top jennifer up it's megan. BUT I think amy and Jennifer are tied so upping JL, ups AA."

A spreadsheet listing the salaries of 6,000 employees, revealed 17 of those employees were raking in $1m (£640,000) or more but only one of those $1 million-plus employees is a woman.

Although Pascal acknowledged there was a problem with the disparity, "there is truth here", it is not known whether any adjustment were made.

Lawrence is not the only celebrity caught in the crossfire following the cyberattack on the major cooperation. Leaked emails between producer Scott Rudin and Sony Pictures co-chair Amy Pascal revealed Angelina Jolie was branded a "minimally talented spoiled brat" during a fiery email exchange.

Employee salaries, movie star paydays and films were also leaked.

The group claiming responsibility are the Guardians of Peace, who are demanding Sony's upcoming North Korea-baiting comedy The Interview, starring Seth Rogen and James Franco, is not released.
