Scarlett Johansson has revealed that the nude photos of her, which leaked on the Internet, were taken for her ex-husband Ryan Reynolds.
Johansson said she took the photos on her mobile phone and sent them to her ex-husband, according to a Daily Mail report.
The actress also told Vanity Fair she wasn't ashamed by the photos and they were taken three years ago while she was dating Reynolds.
"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," she told the magazine.
Johansson and Reynolds were married in September 2008 but divorced in December 2010.
Johansson had contacted the FBI when she realized her phone was hacked.
Christopher Carney, 35, was arrested in Jacksonville in October and later admitted to hacking into the phones and computers of about 50 celebrities. Some of his other victims were Mila Kunis, Christina Aguilera and Renee Olstead.
According to the FBI, the hacker was able to break into the online accounts of the victims by sifting through public data on each person and guessing the passwords as well as security questions on each account. Chaney would then set up a forwarding application where every email sent or received by the account holder went into a special account controlled by him.
His arrest ended an 11-month-investigation by the FBI.
Action News of Jacksonville asked Chaney what he did with the information shortly after his arrest.
"Nothing, it was almost like a completely uncensored," Chaney said. "I wasn't saving the emails to blackmail someone."
A Los Angeles grand jury indicted Chaney with nine counts of computer hacking, eight counts of aggravated identify theft, and nine counts of illegal wiretapping.
He is due in court Tuesday in Los Angeles and faces 121 years in prison if found guilty on all accounts.
