Jude LawLondon, Feb 14 (IANS) Hollywood stars Natalie Portman, Jude Law and Julianne Moore have had their privacy compromised after a British man bought a cellphone containing all of their personal details.

Kent Devey recently purchased a BlackBerry phone on an internet auction website eBay and found the device still contained the previous owner’s address book including contact numbers for a list of Hollywood stars, various movie producers and writers, reports

Devey, from Oldbury, England, didn’t believe the numbers were real until he dialed the digits listed for British actress Julie Walters, and heard her personal answering machine message.

“As I started to look through the phone’s features, I noticed one of the emails hadn’t been wiped off. I started to recognise some of the names and then I saw Jude Law’s number. It’s a genuine mistake,” he said.

The 28-year-old subsequently discovered the phone belonged to an associate producer for Stephen Daldry Pictures and has now contacted the company to have the phone returned.
