The private details of the mother of two of Hollywood's most revered actors have been released to the public.
Leonie Hemsworth, mother of Liam and Chris Hemsworth, was one of several people whose medical, personal and legal information was downloaded online by the state government of Victoria on Monday.
A lawyer from Phillip Island, in the far southeast of Melbourne, Ms. Hemsworth says she is contemplating legal action as Prime Minister Daniel Andrews tries to contain the consequences of the fiasco.

The Prime Minister of Victoria, Daniel Andrews, authorized the release of more than 80,000 documents
On Monday, more than 80,000 documents containing private information from several Victorians were released to the public under the authority of Mr. Andrews, the Herald Sun reported.
Its launch was authorized by Mr. Andrews in an effort to attack opposition leader Matthew Guy for a failed rezoning of the Ventnor suburb of Phillip Island, when he was planning to become a minister in 2011.
The dispute comes when Victoria heads to state elections in November.
Among the documents are Mrs. Hemsworth's financial situation, her daughter's date of birth and address, and psychologist reports from another person.
On Wednesday night, the publication of the information was declared an "error" and removed from the Parliament's website, but not before they had been public for more than 48 hours.
Still, a psychologist's report was still available online Thursday night.

On Thursday afternoon, Mr. Andrews announced that they had contacted Ms. Hemsworth and they had apologized.
She refuted this and told the Herald Sun not.
In public statements, Prime Minister Daniel Andrews said: "That's unnoticed, it's unfortunate.
While Deputy Prime Minister James Merlino said: "This is unfortunate and I'm sorry … As soon as we realized, we removed those details from the documents."

During a fiery question-and-answer session at the State Parliament on Thursday, Andrews and Merlino exchanged blows with opposition leader Matthew Guy.
Merlino said that Mr. Guy was to blame for the leak, saying that he stole money from the public as payment when it went awry. & # 39;
Mr. Guy responded, saying that "the disgusting debacle is a snapshot of the Premier's soul".
A senior lawyer, Ms. Hemsworth says she is considering legal action, and others suggest she has a fair case.
Law Institute of Victoria president Belinda Wilson said there was a "serious breach of privacy," while former privacy commissioner David Watts said there was potential for a class action.
