Scarlett Johansson is yet another victim of cell phone hacking.

Scarlett Johansson has been interviewed by many famous journalists, and now by the FBI! The star asked for help after her phone was hacked, according to The L.A. Times. In the pictures that have surfaced on the website, BuzzFeed, a woman who appears to be Scarlett is posed in a topless self-portrait and others feature the woman taking cell phone photos of her nude derriere.

Marty Singer, Johansson's lawyer, warned the websites that the photographs are private and copyright-protected despite the hacking, and Ari Dekofsky, an LA spokesperson for the FBI, told Fox News, "The FBI is investigating a person or group responsible for a series of computer intrusions on high profile figures."

Sadly, Scarlett is not the only high profile hacking victim! TMZ reported that Vanessa Hudgens had nude photos and videos stolen from her Gmail account. She has also involved a lawyer, Christopher Wong, who expressed that the star was disturbed by the incident and upset how they are continuing to be leaked over a long period of time.

Hugh Grant stood up to being hacked in a different way. When his car broke down in Winter 2010, a journalist for News of the World just happened to come by. The journalist, Paul McMullan, confided in him that High had been hacked by the news organization for years. He invited Hugh by for a drink. Quite devastated by this admission, Hugh took McMullan up on the offer, but he came back wearing a hidden wire! The results of this investigation were published in New Statesman in an article by Hugh himself.

Paris Hilton also experienced hacking. According to The Washington Post, a Massachusetts teenager pleaded guilty in the case. The 17-year-old male was subsequently sentenced to 11 months in detention after the online postings revealed photos and private celebrity contact information from Hilton's phone.
