Actress Scarlett Johansson has broken silence after the leak of her nude photos and has gone a step ahead by defending her act.

She claimed that she took her nude photos for her ex-husband Ryan Reynolds, a Canadian actor. Their two-year marriage ended in Dec. 2010.

I know my best angles. They were sent to my husband. There's nothing wrong with that. It's not like I was shooting a porno. Although there's nothing wrong with that either, Johansson told in an interview with Vanity Fair.

The nude pictures show Johansson first posing in what appears to be her bedroom facing the mirror holding just a towel to cover the front of her body, with her bottom completely on display.

The second image is described as a bit more explicit, and supposedly shows Johansson posing on the bed with her chest and face completely on show.

Meanwhile, FBI is probing to get to the bottom of a scandal involving nude photographs of Johansson that have been leaked online. On the other hand, Christopher Chaney, who was charged with hacking Scarlett's phone and leaking the nude photos, has pleaded not guilty to the charges of identity theft, unauthorized access to a protected computer and wiretapping.

Johansson, 26, made her film debut in North and is known for her performances in Manny & Lo, The Horse Whisperer and Lost in Translation.
