Scarlett Johansson, whose nude photos were leaked online on Sept. 15, has broken her silence on the issue for the first time on Wednesday.
In an interview with CNN made it clear that celebrities aren't different from any other citizen and therefore, their privacy must be respected as well.
Just because you're an actor or make films or whatever doesn't mean you're not entitled to your own personal privacy, Johansson said in the interview, according to a Reuters report. If that is sieged in some way, it feels unjust. It feels wrong.
Reports are that Johansson's leaked photos were targeted by hackers before they surfaced online. Johansson has since met with the FBI on that matter.
The FBI has said it is closing in on the hackers, as it has identity of the ring leader, accoriding to TMZ.
FBI spokeswoman Ari Dekofsky has said the agency is investigating the person or group responsible for hacking celebrities' cell phones.
Due to it being an ongoing investigation, we are not at liberty to confirm specific victims or a number of victims, Dekofsky has said.
