Scarlett Johansson Feels Violated After Nude Photo Leak
Scarlett Johansson never meant for the world to see her naked.
Two weeks after nude photos of the actress leaked online, the 26-year-old tells CNN that despite her celebrity status, she still deserves a certain level of privacy.
“Just because you’re an actor or make films or whatever doesn’t mean you’re not entitled to your own personal privacy,” she said. “If that is sieged in some way, it feels unjust. It feels wrong.”
The We Bought a Zoo actress — who recently spent time in NYC with pal Justin Timberlake — added that life in the spotlight isn’t always easy.
“It’s an adjustment,” she admitted. “But I think there are certain instances where you give a lot of yourself and finally you have to kind of put your foot down and say, ‘Oh wait, I’m taking it back.'”
Hours after the photos surfaced online September 15, Johansson’s lawyer, Marty Singer, fired off cease and desist letters to numerous websites.
“If you fail to comply, you will be acting at your own peril,” he warned. “Please govern yourselves accordingly.”
Johansson is not the first celebrity at the center of an online photo scandal: Vanessa Hudgens, Miley Cyrus and Christina Aguilera had photos stolen and posted online.
