Olympic diver Freddie Woodward is purportedly very upset that websites are sharing naked photos from a shoot that he voluntarily participated in a few years back.
The 23-year-old Brit posed for Gay Times Naked Issue in 2015, but it seems he now regrets ever taking part in the shoot.
Frankly, we don’t know why. It was a very tastefully done and he looked great in the photos. (Helpful hint: Google “Freddie Woodward naked” and you can see for yourself.)
Anyway, apparently his lawyers have been going around bullying websites to remove the naked pics of Woodward… or else, Cocktailsandcocktalk reports.
Never mind the fact that they’ve been circulating on the internet for three years now, or that they were published in a national magazine, or that Woodward had a several much more scandalous nude photos leak on Tumblr last year.
If a website refuses to take down the images, Woodward purportedly files a copyright complaint against it, even though he doesn’t appear to own the copyright. Typically that belongs to the photographer, not the subject in the photos.
Seems like a lot of trouble for Woodward to go through over a few professionally-lit butt shots.

Seems like the Streisand effect is bound to happen here, except not on a large scale, because I simply do not care and I don’t think a lot of other people will.
The fact there’s no NSFW hyperlink should tell you everything. I cannot see what the fuss is over. I haven’t seen any frontal shots. It’s only slightly more risque than what might appear in the issues of ESPN body. So you see his butt crack. Who cares??
PLAYS WELL WITH OTHERS
No peen shots, looks like someone needs a bit of attention…
Ge, I wonder why this lad posed nude if he didn’t want anyone to see them.? If he’s so shy, why the hell have nude photos taken unless it’s some boyfriend who’s a creep and is doing this as revenge, move on!
Totally pg-13 pics…is he upset because they are posted online in general, or is he upset (or someone else…a sponsor) because they were from GT Magazine? Nude photos never hurt anyone’s career in the long run…unless you were trying to run for some school board office.
OMG..Its just an ASS.. Go to tumblr and search..Its really no big deal.
Or we could respect that he doesn’t want nude shots of himself all over the internet. That he made a mistake that he wishes he could undo.
It’s kinda shitty that people are basically saying that since he agreed to have the photos taken once, he agreed that they should be widely distributed forever.
I think this reporting is erroneous –
It’s more likely the lawyers are going after the guy’s private candid nude pics leaked a while back – but are just using a general sweep method and the professional pics get caught up in that, too.
It’s probably easier/cheaper for his lawyers to do it that way.
The private pics are his copyright to enforce a takedown. That’s probably why the copyright was mentioned in the takedown order. It’s a general order – if it doesn’t apply (like with the mag pics), no action is required by the website targeted.
That – OR – it’s a clever way of bringing him back in the spotlight in an attempt to snag some publicity for some other plan. Heck, even just gaining more Instagram/social media followers brings money – and low level celebs can do very will with social media monetization these days.
Is that a link to Freddies jack off or someone just doing a tribute to him?
Its neither… its a dead link… removed content
