According to Perez Hilton, Chaney tried to illegally sell nude photos of the famous ladies back in 2011. Upon initial investigation he claimed innocence, but has since fessed up to his e-mail hacking. It’s particularly creepy that he was able to hack multiple accounts before being caught. Some of the photos he leaked included He nude photos of Scarlett Johansson and Mila Kunis taking a bath.
Scarlett Johansson took particular offense after private photos of her posing for her then hubby, Ryan Reynolds, reached the Internet. In a statement seen on Fox News, Johansson declared, “I have truly been humiliated and embarrassed. I find Christopher Chaney’s actions to be perverted and reprehensible.” Johansson stopped at nothing to ensure he was brought to justice and ten years for hacked nude photos sounds like justice to me.
Unfortunately for these celebrities, photo hacking is no new thing. Back in 2007, naked photos of Disney star, Vanessa Hudgens were leaked all over the internet. It proved particularly controversial since the star was a role model for young children and current star of High School Musical. The pictures reminded the world that Hudgen’s was indeed older than high school, however wasn’t exactly what she pictured to make the crossover from Disney to more mature acting. Miley Cyrus, Blake Lively, and Jessica Alba have also fallen prey to leaked photos.
Hopefully Chaney’s severe punishment will deter other potential hackers from invading the privacy of celebrity’s, or anyone’s, personal email.
