Remember those naughty photos of Scarlett Johansson that had everyone talking and drooling? Let’s just say that ScarJo is damn relieved that it was a hacker that leaked her nude photos. We are hearing that she actually feared that someone from her inner circle was responsible for sharing those pics with the world.
She tells Britain’s Stylist magazine, “It was really terrible; I felt absolutely violated. I wasn’t really aware of how vulnerable all of us are, but I think everybody is just discovering that now, especially with the recent phone-hacking scandals. It isn’t just celebrities, it’s all kinds of people who are not asking for the spotlight. Being hacked made me feel more vulnerable than I ever had previously. I couldn’t figure it out. For a while, I thought it must be someone that I knew who was posting these pictures of me and that was making me incredibly paranoid. I was looking around at all of my friends, who I have known for 20 years, wondering who the backstabber was.”
She went on to add, “To find out it wasn’t a friend who hacked in was a relief, oddly.”
Florida man Christopher Chaney was arrested and charged with 25 counts of identity theft. Apparently ScarJo wasn’t the only celebrity on his hacking list.
Even though Chaney’s life probably pretty much sucks right now, I can bet you that there are numerous people worldwide that thank Chaney for being a sneaky fox.
