Late Night: Scarlett Johansson talks nude photos with Letterman
On Monday night, Scarlett Johansson stopped by "The Late Show" to plug her movie, "We Bought a Zoo," but David Letterman was more interested in discussing the nude self-portraits recently hacked from Johansson's cellphone.
To her credit, Johansson seemed to have a healthy perspective on the ordeal. "Somebody stole my nudie photos. They were out there for all the world to see which was, uh, unfortunate, really," she said, laughing.
Letterman expressed sympathy for Johansson, but also suggested that the nude photos were, on the other hand, "a lovely thing for mankind."
It was a twisted compliment, perhaps, but Johannson appeared flattered. Despite the mostly lighthearted tone of the conversation, Johansson said the incident was "shocking" and "extremely creepy."
Johansson, who described herself as "lame" when it comes to technology, suspected something was awry when her email password changed multiple times over several months. "It meant the guy was there constantly, every 20 seconds, sitting there all pasty and sweaty and pervy and weird. And that's the creepiest thing, really," she said.
