Scarlett Johansson


Scarlett Johansson has privacy on her mind in the wake of her nude picture hacking scandal.

And while The Avengers actress doesn't mention the hacked pictures directly, she spoke to CNN about her personal life being violated.

So did she get steamed when asked about the pictures?

Dressed in a gray T-shirt with her hair up in a messy bun, Scarlett kept her cool while talking to reporter David McKenzie about her phone being hacked. When McKenzie asked her why it's important to protect her privacy, Scarlett seemed to think the answer was pretty obvious.

"I think the question is sort of redundant," she replied, smiling. "Who doesn't want to protect their own privacy?"

(It's probably safe to assume she'd rather not see the pics turned into an art project either.)

"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," she said. "No matter what the context, when that is sieged in some way it feels unjust, it feels wrong."

Johansson says there are times she's forced to say, enough.

"I've gotten that response from many people that I've met now. They say, 'How do you deal with the invasion of privacy?' I don't know. To me, it's an adjustment. There are certainly instances I think where you give a lot of yourself, finally you just kind of put your foot down and say, 'No wait, I'm taking it back.'"

ScarJo was so upset over the pictures being leaked online that she had her attorney send cease-and-desist letters to media outlets that had posted them and they were quickly removed.

The FBI has also gotten in on the act, confirming to E! News that they're investigating the possibility that a hacking ring has been breaking into the cell phones of female stars.
