Scarlett Johansson: Nude Photos Were Meant For Ryan Reynolds

Scarlett Johansson found herself in the middle of a nude photo scandal back in September, but if you think the unfortunate situation brought her down, think again.

Johansson opened up to Vanity Fair in their December cover story about the origin of those now-infamous photos -- and whose eyes they were meant for in the first place.

"They were sent to my husband,” Johansson said, meaning her now ex-husband Ryan Reynolds. “There's nothing wrong with that."

The actress also says she has no shame about sending the racy pics, especially when they were only meant for Reynolds.

"It's not like I was shooting a porno," she said, adding, "Although there's nothing wrong with that either.”

While Johansson's nude photos got a lot of buzz when they hit the net, she wasn't the only celebrity to fall victim to the email hacker.

Actress Mila Kunis' private photos were also made public in September, and singer Christina Aguilera had dozens photos released online at the end of 2010.

But last month, thanks to the FBI's involvement, their nightmare came to an end. Christopher Chaney, 35, of Jacksonville, Fla., was arrested for hacking into more than 50 people's email accounts, including those belonging to Johansson, Kunis and Aguilera.

Chaney was charged with 26 counts of identity theft and unauthorized access to a protected computer, as well as wiretapping. If convicted, the hacker could be locked up for over 120 years.

And just as Johasson's nude scandal comes to a close, a new one starts for Taylor Swift. The singer and her legal team are threatening legal action against a website that recently posted photos of what it claims to be a topless Swift.

If Johansson can get past a nude scandal, we think Swift can too.
