The Avengers star opens up in the May 2012 issue of Vogue about the embarrassing 2011 incident, explaining how she handled the hacker situation with dignity and pride – and RadarOnline.com has the details.
“It wasn’t just me,” Johansson explains about the other stars, including Mila Kunis and Christina Aguilera who were also targeted by the hacker and why she decided to go to the authorities rather than pretend that the photos, which were intended only for the eyes of her then-husband Ryan Reynolds, weren’t actually of her.
“It was others. I don’t want to be a victim and say, ‘Oh, well’ and just hide my head in shame. Somebody stole something from me. . . . It’s sick. I don’t want people like that to slide,” she says.
But the actress had to make the best out of the situation, and put her insecurities aside.
“When all those photos came out, of course I go out to dinner and think, 'Goddamn it, these people have all seen my. . . .'”
Johansson’s voice trails off. “That’s terrible. You know what I mean? You can’t not think that. Even if they haven’t, you’re paranoid.”
“I don’t want pity,” she says, explaining that she dealt with it by “tuning it all out,” which inevitably made her stronger in the end.
“I have to say I’m way happier because of it,” she says. “It’s nice. It allows me, I think, to be more creative. It’s nice not to be so self-aware.”
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Scarlett also divulged all the details about her painful divorce from Reynolds in the intimate interview with Vogue.
