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."
