The Avengers actress Scarlett Johansson has revealed how, when nude pictures of her appeared online, she became extremely paranoid. Scarlett admitted to Stylist that she even got to the stage where she was beginning to question her family and friends, so was delighted when she found out it was nobody she actually knew.
Johansson explained, "It was really terrible; I felt absolutely violated. I wasn't really aware of how vulnerable all of us are, but I think everybody is just discovering that now, especially with the recent phone-hacking scandals.”
She added, “It isn't just celebrities, it's all kinds of people who are not asking for the spotlight. Being hacked made me feel more vulnerable than I ever had previously. I couldn't figure it out.”
Scarlett continued, “For a while, I thought it must be someone that I knew who was posting these pictures of me and that was making me incredibly paranoid. I was looking around at all of my friends, who I have known for 20 years, wondering who the backstabber was. To find out it wasn't a friend who hacked in was a relief, oddly."
