Scarlett Johansson had nude pictures of her distributed online after her cell phone was hacked and she’s opening up about the invasion of privacy!
Scarlett Johansson was the victim of a hacker who leaked nude photographs of her on the internet. The FBI are now involved and investigating whether a hacking ring has targeted female celebrities’ phones. In a new interview Scarlett responds to a question about why it’s important to protect her privacy.
“I think the question is sort of redundant. Who doesn’t want to protect their own privacy?” she said. “Just because you’re in the spotlight or just because you’re an actor or make films doesn’t mean you’re not entitled to your own personal privacy. No matter what the context, if that is sieged in some way it feels unjust, it feels wrong.”
The actress explained that she tries balance her career with her personal life, which as we saw in her relationship with Ryan Reynolds, she is adamant about keeping private. “I’ve gotten that response from many people that I’ve met. They say, ‘How do you deal with the invasion of privacy?’ I don’t know. To me, it’s an adjustment. There are certain instances I think where you give a lot of yourself, finally you just kind of have to put your foot down and say, ‘No wait, I’m taking it back.’”
Poor ScarJo! It’s definitely a challenge to determine how much you reveal about your personal life when you are a celebrity, but nobody deserves to be hacked in such a public and embarrassing manner. What do you think about how Scarlett handled the question?
