Scarlett Johansson feels she could have prevented nude photo leak
Scarlett Johansson suspected that her account was hacked when her email passwords kept changing, and she now regrets not acting upon it.
A set of private, saucy shots intended for her then-husband Ryan Reynolds, were leaked online in September.
The perpetrator, Christopher Chaney, was tracked down and arrested a month later and charged with 25 counts of identity theft amid accusations he hacked into a number of private email accounts, including Johansson's.
The actress is now kicking herself for not realising what was going on at the time.
"It was terrible... It was extremely creepy," the Daily Express quoted her as saying.
"What was even more creepy about it is that the person was obviously following me... My email password was constantly changing, for months and months and months. And I kept thinking, 'Why is my password always changing?' And so it meant the guy was really there, constantly, like, every 20 seconds," she said.
"He (was) just sitting there all pasty, and sweaty, and pervy, and weird. That's the creepiest thing," she added.

Playboy releases first inside spread shot of 'bombshell' LiLo
Playboy magazine has released the first shot of Lindsay Lohan from the inside spread after the cover of the highly anticipated issue was leaked on the internet earlier.
The 25-year-old actress is seen channeling her inner bombshell as she reclines with her white blonde hair tumbling over her shoulders, her arm raised above her head.
With her red glossy lips parted, Lohan is seen pouting and staring into the camera with her eyes partially hidden under her huge eyelashes.
Fans of the magazine will no doubt feel short changed by the "nude shot" which reveals only a hint of her chest.
While plenty of flesh is on show, it seems that her skin has been airbrushed considerably in parts with few freckles on show, the Daily Mail reported.
A snap showing Lindsay on the set of the photoshoot was revealed on Nov 11.
The Mean Girls star was captured before the airbrush, clutching a cigarette and teasing onlookers as her dressing gown gaped open.
Freida Pinto thrilled with Indian influence in Chanel
Freida Pinto has revealed that she loves how Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld is inspired by her native country, India.
Although the 27-year-old actress often prefers wearing traditional saris for special occasions, she is thrilled to find that the 78-year-old designer is hugely inspired by India when he designs for the French fashion house.
"To be honest saris are still what we choose when we dress up. But more and more Indian women are becoming fans of Chanel. I have worn it several times and often go for the Indian-influenced things," Contactmusic.com quoted her as telling Britain's Grazia magazine.
"People don't often talk about the Indian motifs in Karl's collections, but I wore a sari-inspired dress in 2010 and feel that the theme is often there in his work," she added.
How to recreate JLo's signature glow
The make-up artist behind Jennifer Lopez's famous 'lit from within' glow has revealed how to emulate that look.
The star is famed for her gorgeous complexion, which always looks flawless on the red carpet.
Scott Barnes, says that her look can easily be achieved at home using the right contouring.
"Firstly, it's important to find your correct foundation colour that perfectly matches your skin tone," the Sydney Morning Herald quoted him as telling Beauty High.
"When contouring with bronzer, it's important to work from the outside in to create a halo effect, that beautiful 'lit from within' glow," he said.
"I love Guerlain's bronzing powders - the key is to find a shade that's one shade darker than your skin," he added.
Barnes, whose clientele includes Christina Aguilera and Gwen Stefani, says a little always goes a long way when it comes to beauty products.
"An eyelash curler is the most important thing, it makes your eyes look open. I also always use Naphcon-A eye drops (available at your local chemist), as they make your eyes look bright and white and rested," he said.
"With a little mascara, eyelash curler and eye drops, you'll be gorgeous," he added.
Middleton receives fashion tips from Camilla!
If being with your mother-in-law isn't bad enough, we can't imagine what poor Kate Middleton must be going through.
According to a report in the Daily Mail, Camilla the stepmother of Prince William has been offering fashion tips (yep you heard it right). The paper reports that after she advised Kate on 'who to see for facials, Camilla, 64, has suggested that she has her hair coloured by top stylist Jo Hansford'.
So far Middleton who would visit Chelsea-based Richard Ward for her haircut and hair colouring is being persuaded by Camilla to try a new place.
As it happens, Hansford has been Camilla's hairdresser for the last 20 years and she seems to think that her daughter-in-law should follow in on her footsteps... at least when it comes to picking her hairdresser.
Apparently this isn;t the first time that Camilla has offered her advice to her daughter-in-law. On her wedding day, Kate was keen on wearing flowers in her hair till she 'intervened and suggested a tiara was more appropriate'.
We suppose even royalty isn't spared of mothers-in-law...

Megan Fox gets oxygen facial once every week
Megan Fox has revealed that she gets an oxygen facial once a week as she thinks that it's important to take care of her skin.
The stunning actress said that when not working, she likes to indulge in a weekly treatment to keep her looking at her best.
"I don't have time to do masks, but I love having them done as part of a facial. If I'm not working, I have an oxygen facial once a week. It's important to go out and have a steam and get the toxins out," Contactmusic quoted her as telling Britain's InStyle magazine.
The Jennifer's Body actress also revealed that she tries not to wear make-up when she doesn't have to.
"I don't wear make-up when I'm not working, unless I'm going on a date with my husband. Then, I'll do a dewy tinted moisturiser with a lip gloss and tons of mascara. I have a lot of mascara.
"I wash my face and moisturise twice a day with Epicuren Discovery's Bulgarian Rose Otto and apply Perricone MD's Vitamin C Ester Eye Serum a few times a day. I don't wear sunscreen, because I feel like I'm allergic to the chemicals in it. I stay out of the sun as much as possible and always wear hats," she added.

Lady Gaga's nude portrait goes under the hammer
Lady Gaga's nude portrait, which was sketched by Tony Bennett for Vanity Fair is going to be auctioned off for charity.
The 25-year-old pop queen recently posed nude so the 55-year-old crooner could draw pictures of her after they recorded a song for his Duets II album.
The creative concept includes the sketch done by the music icon, as well as a photograph taken by famed fashion photographer Annie Leibovitz.
Both images of the Born This Way hitmaker can be viewed exclusively inside the magazine.
The provocative images, which Gaga tactfully covers up all the right spots on her naked body while holding a cigarette, will soon become collector's items.
The highest bidder will not only win the two illustrations of the bare-skinned entertainer, but will also receive signed copies of the original works by the artists, accessories from the shoot, and a poster of the Vanity Fair cover singed by Gaga, among other things.
Proceeds from the auction will go toward charitable causes that include Exploring the Arts, a non-profit organisation co-founded by Bennett and his wife Susan Benedetto, which aims to strengthen the role of the arts in public high school education, the New York Daily News reported.
Gaga's non-profit Born This Way Foundation will also benefit from the proceeds.
The singer's organisation partners with the MacArthur Foundation and Harvard University, with a focus on youth empowerment.
