Scarlett Johannson is talking for the first time about nude photos of her that were leaked online a few weeks ago.

The pics, stolen from her phone by hackers in March, were taken down by media outlets after Johannson's attorney sent cease-and-desist letters.

Johannson tells CNN:

    "Who doesn't want to protect their own privacy? Just because you're in the spotlight or just because you're an actor or make films or whatever doesn't mean you're not entitled to your own personal privacy ... If that is sieged in some way, it feels unjust. It feels wrong. ... You give a lot of yourself, and then finally you just have to kind of put your foot down and say, 'Oh wait, I'm taking it back.'"

The FBI is investigating the hacking. Additional stars, including Mila Kunis, were also victims.
