Scarlett Johansson speaks: 'I'm entitled to my privacy'

Scarlett Johansson is standing up for her privacy

Scarlett Johansson is speaking up about nude photographs of her that circulated online after they were allegedly hacked from her smartphone.

"Just because you're an actor or make films or whatever doesn’t mean you're not entitled to your own personal privacy," Johansson said in an interview with CNN.

"If that is sieged in some way, it feels unjust. It feels wrong," she added. The shots that leaked in mid-September showed the "Avengers" actress nude from behind and topless from the front.

Though the shots were a far cry from the sex tapes of the world's Kim Kardashians, Johansson says their distribution felt beyond violating -- and is the kind of thing that has taken some getting used to.

"It's an adjustment, but I think there are certain instances where you give a lot of yourself and finally you have to kind of put your foot down and say, 'Oh wait, I’m taking it back,'" Johansson said.

Scarlett has reportedly enlisted the FBI to get to the bottom of the intrusion. Meanwhile, she'll wrap up  "Avengers" with Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson and Robert Downey Jr., and will appear with Matt Damon in the upcoming "We Bought a Zoo."

Justin Timberlake: That's not my penis

Justin Timberlake is telling pals it ain't him in nude photos

Justin Timberlake is reportedly telling folks to go ahead and cry themselves a river, because that's not his penis in a picture stolen from Mila Kunis' smartphone.

His "Friends With Benefits" costar Kunis is reportedly the victim of a phone hack, in which several pictures were unearthed, among them one allegedly depicting Timberlake shirtless and one nudie pic showing an unidentified man's package.

But the exposed member ain't his, he's personally telling friends, according to a TMZ report. 

The four pictures floating around are said to include one of Timberlake wearing pink panties on his head, and another of Kunis in a bathtub.

This hasn't been a banner week for Hollywood keeping a lid on sexy camera photos. Personal pics of Scarlett Johansson surfaced as well, resulting in a viral sensation Wednesday over photos of her bare bottom and chest.

(Not to mention a subsequent flurry of cease-and-desist letters, which pretty quickly resulted in the ScarJo pics being taken down by websites including BuzzFeed and the Dirty, to name a few, though versions of the images with the naughty bits blacked out could still be found online Friday.)

Scarlett Johansson enlists FBI over allegedly hacked naked photos

Naked pictures of Scarlett Johansson have been leaked online.

This post has been corrected. See the note below for details. Scarlett Johansson

Scarlett Johansson has reportedly contacted the FBI after naked pictures of her surfaced Wednesday on a popular viral-media website.

The 26-year-old actress' name was among 50 or so possible victims mentioned in March in connection with an investigation of a hacking ring targeting celebrities' email accounts and smartphones, looking for dirt. The somewhat fuzzy photos posted Wednesday on BuzzFeed are of a woman who appears to be Johansson, taking iPhone pictures of her own bare backside and breasts.

"The FBI is aware of the alleged hacking incident and is looking into it," an FBI official told Fox News. Sources told TMZ that the FBI would be contacted over what the ScarJo camp believed to be a criminal act.

BuzzFeed poster Donna D. noted, "I spent more time than is probably healthy trying to figure out if these are legit. ... Call me skeptical but gifts like this don't just fall out of the sky. Then again, her iPhone was hacked in March with rumors of nude photos to be forthcoming." (Several other sites followed up with censored versions of the Johansson shots; the unstoppably curious can see the still-not-safe-for-work images here.)

Vanessa Hudgens had previously been a victim of the alleged ring, with nude pictures said to have been hacked from her Gmail account also showing up online. According to TMZ, Hudgens met with law-enforcement authorities in March regarding the investigation.

Illegally accessed cellphone voice-mail messages -- brought to light in part by actor Hugh Grant -- were part of the scandal that brought down British tabloid the News of the World over the summer.

[For the record, 4:15 p.m. Sept. 14: This post originally gave Donna D.'s screen name incorrectly as Diane D.]

Demi Moore is back. Or is naked Demi Moore all a front?

It's a weekday, which means that Demi Moore is once again getting naked in a picture on Twitter.

Well, to be fair, the shot above right, posted Friday, is the first time she's gone all-out topless; so far we’ve seen Demi in a bikini, Demi bending over and regaling us with her panty-clad buttocks and Demi in bed wearing nothing but glasses and what looks like nothing but a sheet. So this is Demi’s nakedest Twitter shot yet!

We could partner with a celebrity therapist of some erudite stripe, and, together, wax forth on what this all means about Demi's brain. (Have we seen any Twitter pics of Demi's brain? Geez, get on that, Demi.) Is this a case of exhibitionism? Narcissism? Some nefarious combination therein? Well, it would be totally irresponsible to diagnose Moore like that while having met only her back. So instead, we’ll note something else.

Her project slate. Which, for the record, is slimmer than Moore's very trim back.

Note that Moore is currently filming a comedy called "Magic Mike," playing a supporting role to Channing Tatum, Alex Pettyfer and Olivia Munn. (No comment.) Moore also plays Miley Cyrus' mom in the yet-to-be-released-stateside comedy "LOL." According to reports, Moore has lines such as, "You're my daughter, and I won't let you turn into a porn star!"

Beyond that, Moore has no announced films, as far as the, well, naked eye can see. (Thank you! We'll be here all week.)

Could the two facts -- a half-naked tweet, a lack of work -- be related? Well, in the old-timey days before Twitter, over-40 stars would often stage paparazzi photo ops in bikinis, a not-so-subtle assertion that the actress can still keep it tight, and her agent would sure like to hear from you.

Was that Moore's motive? Put it this way: If our work schedule looked like hers, we’d probably strip on Twitter too.

Track Palin is a dad, Sarah is a grandma, Levi's sister is naked

Track Palin with his family in 2008.

Track Palin is a new dad, which makes Sarah Palin a grandmother twice over.

Track, 22, and wife Britta, 21, welcomed a daughter Sunday night, according to Nation Now. The high school sweethearts married quietly in May, with plans for a "long ski weekend" this winter with family and friends to celebrate the wedding. News that Britta was expecting a child leaked in June. The math is up to you. 

"Kyla Grace is great," Elizabeth Hanson, the baby's maternal grandmother, told Radar Online on Monday about the new baby. "She's beautiful." Paternal baba Sarah Palin had no official e-comment as of Tuesday, though she had taken time to weigh in on the whole credit-downgrade thing. 

A twist: The birth announcement came originally from Joe McGinniss, a writer whose rental of the house next door to Palin Central -- it would be his abode while working on a book about the former Alaska governor -- spurred the building of a 14-foot fence by the state's former first family. Probably just coincidental that McGinniss noticed the baby news.

Meanwhile, Mercede Johnston, younger sister of Bristol Palin's baby daddy, Levi Johnston, recently joined the family businesses: posing nude and trashing the Palins.

After Levi paved the way in Playgirl, demurely keeping his naughty bits to himself, Mercede has stripped for Playboy. The four-page photo spread, due Friday, is reportedly accompanied by an interview in which the 19-year-old calls Bristol a "sociopath" and alleges her brother and his future ex-fiancée planned to have a baby and were in fact "trying to conceive for months."

Bristol proved herself no slouch in the name-calling department with her my-life-so-far memoir, which hit stores in June. In it, she said she lost her virginity to Levi Johnston in a tent after too many wine coolers, and classified him as a "gnat" who cheated on her and lied to her and her family.

So, yeah, "All My Children" is ending its run in late September? Fear not -- we have an idea what might take up the slack.

Hugh Hefner labels Crystal Harris 'runaway bride' on July Playboy cover

July Playboy, runaway bride edition Hugh Hefner clearly knows how to put the "good" in goodbye: Bold enough to slap his scantily clad future missus Crystal Harris onto the cover of the upcoming July Playboy, the born-again bachelor is now boldly slapping on a warning label of sorts.

"Recent events call for a special sticker on the July cover," Hef tweeted Wednesday with a picture. "Look for it on newsstands."

"Runaway bride in this issue!" reads the bright-red label on the revised cover, which also bears its original teaser, "America's Princess: Introducing Mrs. Crystal Hefner."

Harris packed her stuff and ditched Hefner only days before their wedding, which had been planned for Saturday. Darn those magazines and their long publishing lead times -- the rest of the world need only buy some chocolate and unfriend the ex on Facebook.

Harris talked with Ryan Seacrest on his radio show Wednesday to give her side of the story -- which according to her involved a mutual decision not to get married.

"For a while I've been having second thoughts about everything," the 25-year-old said. "I haven't really been at peace with myself lately. I didn't think it was really fair to him." Oh yeah, it turns out she also wasn't really down with her fiance's unusual lifestyle.

"Multiple girls all around, it's not the lifestyle I wanted," America's Princess told Seacrest.

However, mutual may be in the eye of the beholder.

"Crystal did an interview ... to explain everything, but I still don't have a clue," Hefner, 85, said via Twitter, adding, "I didn't see any of this coming, but I'm glad things went wrong before the marriage instead of after. Live & learn."

The Ministry is just glad that after living in the Playboy Mansion for years, spending some of that time as one of three "girlfriends," Harris needed less than six months from the time of her December engagement to notice the multiple-girls thing.

Ashley Tisdale gets naked for Allure magazine

Ashleytisdalestory Ashley Tisdale's naked photo shoot helped launch Allure's May issue and its iPad debut in a big way Tuesday. The former "High School Musical" actress bared it all for a chance to show the world she's all grown up.

"I'm 25, almost 26, but people think of me as much younger because I look young," the "Hellcats" actress told Allure. "Being in this shoot was me saying, 'I'm not just the young girl everybody thinks I am. I'm actually a woman.'" (Click here to see for yourself).

Tisdale even brought her mom along for the shoot, explaining, "I've always wanted to be sure my parents approve of what I do."

"The Big Bang Theory's" Kaley Cuoco, who also stripped down for the eye-popping app along with Keri Hilson and Bridget Moynahan, didn't take the same approach with her parents. "I have not told my family about this, and I'll tell you why: Until they see the photos, they won't understand. All a mother or father hears is the word 'naked.' When I told my mom about the shoot, I left out the part about taking my clothes off."

'Octomom' Nadya Suleman makes a fetish video; grown man cries [poll]

Octomom Nadya Suleman has made a fetish video'"Octomom" Nadya Suleman has apparently made a fetish video -- and from the clips we just saw, heaven help us, we have to say we just wish she'd done a porno. It would have been less annoying. And might not have had a Rick Dees connection.

Suleman busting out of a tight black corset, unsvelte L.A. radio personality Tattoo in a droopy adult diaper and nonstop adult crying as she whips his big ol' hairy backside. This video actually could have been made as leverage to get her mortgage-holder to just give her the dang house for free, just so she'd make it stop.

Our kingdom for a groovy synth soundtrack, please, and no baby costume.

Tattoo, a.k.a. David Gonzalez, is the guy who emceed Octomom's yard sale back in September.

"It's rare to find a unique talent like Tattoo who is willing to be attacked by a pack of pit bulls in an effort to increase ratings," Rick Dees said Sept. 14 when Gonzalez signed with Dees Entertainment.  "There are several projects we're incubating with Tattoo, and he has some amazing ideas."

Incubating -- ha, ha, we get it. So how long has this crime against humanity been in the creative queue? And why didn't we have the option to vote for the pit-bull attack instead?

Also available at Rick.com, in addition to repostings of the pics and videos from TMZ: a lovely recipe for "Chef Dees Date Sauce," to be ladled over cake while it's hot. Let's hope we're the only ones who looked at that combination of Web pages.

Tattoo had no comment Wednesday when contacted by the O.C. Register. And really, can you blame him? See the video at TMZ, if you'd like. But don't say we didn't warn you. And for the love of Western civilization, don't watch it at work.

P.S. Nadya -- spaghetti arms, dear. Now everyone knows you must throw like a girl.

Brett Favre fined $50,000 for not putting out in Jenn Sterger investigation

Brett Favre fined in Jenn Sterger sexting investigaton Brett Favre won't be suspended by the NFL, but he was fined $50,000 on Wednesday for essentially failing to put out for a league investigation, the Fabulous Forum reports.

During the probe into allegations that Favre sent X-rated pictures and text messages to smokin' hot sideline personality Jenn Sterger in 2008, the Minnesota Vikings quarterback was "not candid in several respects during the investigation, resulting in a longer review and additional negative public attention for Favre, Sterger and the NFL," the league said in a statement.

With its current evidence -- apparently there were problems scheduling interviews with "certain key individuals," and forensic analysis of electronic records was indecisive -- the NFL "could not conclude" whether Favre had sent unwanted come-ons and pictures of his penis to Sterger in 2008. Pictures surfaced in October on the website Deadspin, which had alluded to their existence for months after a chat with Sterger around the time of this year's Super Bowl. (Click that first related link, below, to go to a post that leads to said pics. Hint: Hunt for where it says "evidence.")

Jenn Sterger, of the Brett Favre sexting drama Favre and Sterger were both interviewed by the league, which said it focused only on whether the quarterback violated workplace-conduct policy, not on making "judgments about the appropriateness of personal relationships." Both parties were New York Jets employees in 2008. Sterger more recently co-hosted "The Daily Line" on the Versus sports channel; the show was canceled in early November due to bad ratings.

Media reports that Favre also hit on two massage therapists who worked with the team in 2008 could not be substantiated, the NFL said, because people with "potentially relevant information" declined to be interviewed or to cooperate with investigators.

The Doors' Jim Morrison pardoned for indecent exposure

Jimmorrison_2[1] This is an updated version of an earlier post. Changes are noted below.

The Doors frontman Jim Morrison received a posthumous pardon for a 1969 indecent exposure conviction from the state of Florida on Thursday, one day after what would have been his 67th birthday.

Now, we here at the Ministry are more of the "Oh, a thousand pardons" mind-set when it comes to hotties exposing themselves in public (via cellphone is a whole 'nother story), but to hear it from Morrison's bandmates, no gratuitous beefcake moment happened at the March 1969 show in Miami.

"It never actually happened. It was mass hypnosis," keyboard player Ray Manzarek told the Associated Press.

Manzarek and guitarist Robby Krieger said Morrison's behavior was influenced by an acting troupe that disrobed during plays.

"He was just doing a mind trip — as they would say — a mind trip on the audience and they totally fell for it," Manzarek said.

Patricia Kennealy Morrison, author of "Strange Days: My Life With and Without Jim Morrison"  told CNN that even though fans had lobbied for the pardon, the singer wouldn't have wanted it, because he hadn't done anything wrong.

"Since the original charges and trial were a publicity stunt to begin with, it doesn't surprise me in the slightest that the pardon should follow in those footsteps," she said.

Also, she added: "Despite the fact that there were 10,000 people in the hall that night, funny thing, no one has a picture of the actual exposure of the Lizard King's lizard."

Morrison was convicted of public profanity and indecent exposure and sentenced to six months in jail and a $500 fine. He died of a heart attack in Paris in 1971, at age 27.

Hmm. Might it be that Florida Gov. Charlie Crist -- who started working on the pardon in 2007 and finally secured the support needed from the state clemency board -- is simply a fan of indecent exposure himself?
