Scarlett Johansson found herself in the middle of a nude photo scandal back in September, but if you think the unfortunate situation brought her down, think again. Johansson opened up to Vanity Fair in their December cover story about the origin of those now-infamous photos -- and whose eyes they were meant for in the first place. The actress also says she has no shame about sending the racy pics, especially when they were only meant for Reynolds. While Johansson's nude photos got a lot of buzz when they hit the net, she wasn't the only celebrity to fall victim to the email hacker. Actress Mila Kunis' private photos were also made public in September, and singer Christina Aguilera had dozens photos released online at the end of But last month, thanks to the FBI's involvement, their nightmare came to an end. Christopher Chaney, 35, of Jacksonville, Fla. Chaney was charged with 26 counts of identity theft and unauthorized access to a protected computer, as well as wiretapping. If convicted, the hacker could be locked up for over years. And just as Johasson's nude scandal comes to a close, a new one starts for Taylor Swift.
Scarlett Johansson must have spent one too many nights alone and bored in a hotel room. She apparently passed the time taking nude photos of herself with her camera phone. Johansson is the latest starlet to see those photos leak onto the Internet. Two racy photos went viral this morning Sept. In one photo, Scarlett, err that is, the girl in the photo, is lying on her side holding the camera above herself with her breast and face clearly exposed. A second shows her face up close with her naked backside captured in a mirror reflection. A rather creative use of mirrors; extra credit for that one. Earlier this year, a group of hackers claimed to have cracked the email accounts of up to 50 celebrities and discovered numerous nude photos, almost all self-taken. Since then, photos of Vanessa Hudgens and Blake Lively have turned up online. Reps for Blake denied the photos were her, but the denial was pretty thin.

The FBI are once again investigating reports that nude photos of a famous celebrity have been leaked onto the web.
