In the wake of nude self-portraits of Scarlett Johansson being leaked to the web, the actress sat down with CNN to discuss the implications of stardom on her personal privacy. Though she didn’t address the nude pics directly, it’s certainly implied.
“Just because you’re in the spotlight or just because you’re an actor or making films or whatever doesn’t mean that you’re not entitled to your own personal privacy,” she says. “I think no matter what the context, if that is besieged in some way, it feels unjust. It feels wrong.”
Two cell-phone photos were released, one which revealed her derriere, the other her breasts. Johansson has enlisted the FBI to investigate the hack on her phone.
“[People] say ‘How do you deal with the invasion of privacy?’ and I don’t know. To me it’s an adjustment, and there’s certain instances I think where you give a lot of yourself, and finally you have to put your foot down and say ‘No, wait, I’m taking it back.'”
