Scarlett Johansson shows her naked nerve as she dismisses nude photo scandal

Scarlett JohanssonThe FBI launched an investigation after hackers stole the images, which were taken by Miss Johansson herself on a mobile phone and intended for her husband’s eyes only.

They were published on a number of websites.

While many women would be mortified at the intrusion, the 26-year-old actress was sanguine.

“I know my best angles,” she joked.

“They were sent to my husband. There’s nothing wrong with that. It’s not like I was shooting a porno. Although there’s nothing wrong with that either.”

At the time the pictures were taken, Miss Johansson was married to Ryan Reynolds, the actor. The couple divorced in July.

Miss Johansson made the comments in an interview with Vanity Fair magazine, during which she also discussed her high profile support for Barack Obama.

Like many Hollywood celebrities, the star of Lost In Translation and Girl With A Pearl Earring campaigned for Obama in the presidential election. Three years on, she admits that her hopes have not been realised.

“We’re all guilty of being idealistic, I and everyone who voted for him,” she said, but added that she would work for him again because “it would be irresponsible not to”.

Her interview came as a Florida man denied hacking into e-mail accounts to access and distribute nude photos and other personal information of numerous celebrities including Johansson.

Christopher Chaney, 35, made his first court appearance in California, where he’s been indicted on 26 counts of cyber-related crimes, including unauthorised access to a computer and wiretapping.

If convicted, he faces up to 121 years in prison. He was arrested as part of the yearlong FBI investigation of celebrity hacking dubbed “Operation Hackerazzi”.

Chaney was charged with hacking into e-mails of Miss Johansson, along with actress Mila Kunis, of the Black Swan fame and singer Christina Aguilera.

Other victims were identified only by their initials, which included B.P. and J.A., among them. There were more than 50 victims in total.

A search warrant disclosed that his computer hard drive contained numerous private celebrity photos as well as a document that compiled their extensive personal data.

The day after he was arrested, Chaney told an American television station that he had become addicted to prying into the affairs of celebrities and apologised.

“I was almost relieved months ago when they (the FBI) came and took my computer … because I didn’t know how to stop,” he said.

On Tuesday, a Los Angeles judge freed Chaney on a $110,000 bond and allowed him to return home while wearing an electronic tag. A trial date was set for late December.
