Scarlett Johansson calls hacker's actions 'perverted and reprehensible,' records message for court

By Gina DiFalco,

Scarlett Johansson videotaped a statement she prepared for the U.S. District Court to play when hacker Christopher Chaney was sentenced to 10 years in prison on Monday for hacking-related charges.

Chaney, 35, was sentenced to a decade behind bars by Judge S. James Otero in a Florida courtroom. Johansson said in the video that she was "truly humiliated and embarrassed" by Chaney hacking into then-husband Ryan Reynolds’ email and leaking the nude picture.

She also called Chaney’s actions "perverted and reprehensible,” The LA Times reports.

Chaney hacked into at least 50 celebrities’ personal email accounts, including Christina Aguilera and Mila Kunis.

Aguilera also recorded a message for the court, saying “That feeling of security can never be given back and there is no compensation that can restore the feeling one has from such a large invasion of privacy."

Renee Olstead, another actress, who Chaney victimized, actually appeared in court and explained how the hacking affected her.

"I just really hope this doesn't happen to someone else," she said while crying, Access Hollywood reports. "You can lose everything because of the actions of a stranger."
