NEW YORK (CBS) Nude pictures that appear to be of Kat Dennings, the actress who starred alongside Michael Cera in "Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist," have surfaced on several websites Friday.

PICTURES: Kat Dennings

One of the photos shows a naked woman, who strikingly resembles the 24-year-old actress, staring seductively at what seems to be a webcam with her arms wrapped around her knees, leaving a generous portion of her left breast exposed.

In another compromising shot, the woman is seen, from the chin down, completely topless while wearing black underwear.

The sources of the Internet leaks have yet to be identified.

Dennings, who will next be seen in "Daydream Nation" and in "Thor," is the latest Hollywood starlet caught up in a risque photo scandal.

Earlier this year, topless pictures of Paramore's Hayley Williams randomly surfaced on the singer's Twitter page. In 2009 nude photographs of "Twilight's" Ashley Greene made its rounds on the internet. Her lawyers at the timethreatened to sue anyone who published them. And in 2007, a full frontal shot of Vanessa Hudgens leaked online, forcing the "High School Musical" star to apologize to her fans.
