Scarlett Johansson has blasted hackers who reportedly compromised her cell phone and leaked nude photos of her online. Speaking for the first time since the images surfaced on the Internet, Johansson defended her right to privacy and condemned those responsible for the hacking.
The actress told CNN's David MCKenzie, "Who doesn't want to protect their own privacy? Just because you're an actor or make films or whatever doesn't mean you're not entitled to your own personal privacy. If that is sieged in some way, it feels unjust. It feels wrong". Scarlett gave the interview in Nairobi, Kenya, where she is currently visiting with the humanitarian group Oxfam in an attempt to tackle the drought and famine in the region. The Fbi are currently investigating claims of hacking following the series of photos that quickly spread around social networking sites earlier this month. Johansson's lawyers sent out letters to all the websites that published the photos, threatening legal action. The images follow several other high profile "leaks" that have involved celebrities having their phones or computers hacked. Actress Jessica Alba was allegedly a victim, while Blake Lively vehemently denied she featured in a series of explicit photos that surfaced online.
Scarlett Johansson, still best known for her performance opposite Bill Murray in 'Lost in Translation', will next appear in Cameron Crowe's comedy drama 'We Built a Zoo'.
