Scarlett Johannson

Scarlett Johansson told CNN that she felt wronged by the illegal phone hacking that led to nude photos of her reaching the internet. In an interview about her trip to Kenya and other impoverished areas of Africa with Oxfam, she answered David McKenzie’s question about how she handles the unwanted attention of being a celebrity. “Just because you’re in the spotlight, or 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.”

Johansson’s attorney acted promptly when nude photos appeared online on Sept. 14, contacting several sites and threatening legal action if the images were not removed. “It’s an adjustment, but there are certain instances where you give a lot of yourself and then finally you just have to kind of put your foot down and say, ‘No, wait, I’m taking it back,'” said Johansson.
