Scarlett Johansson naked pictures have recently surfaced online.
Now, the FBI is reportedly after those who have hacked into the computer and/or cell phone files of various female celebrities.
In addition to Johansson – it isn’t clear if the FBI is involved in her particular case – rumored hacker victims include Mila Kunis, Vanessa Hudgens, Jessica Alba, Christina Aguilera, Ali Larter, and Demi Lovato.
Johansson’s naked photos have been removed from various sites after her attorney sent out “cease and desist” letters. The images show the 26-year-old actress topless and her bare behind. They were allegedly stolen from her cell phone.
Scarlett Johansson movies include Sofia Coppola’s Academy Award-nominated Lost in Translation; Peter Webber’s Girl with a Pearl Earring; Brian De Palma’s The Black Dahlia; Christopher Nolan’s The Prestige; Michael Bay’s The Island; Jon Favreau’s Iron Man 2; and the Woody Allen efforts Scoop, Match Point, and Vicky Cristina Barcelona. Johansson will next be seen in Cameron Crowe’s We Bought a Zoo, opposite Matt Damon and Elle Fanning.
Last year, Johansson won a Tony for Best Performance by a Featured Actress in a Play – a revival of Arthur Miller’s A View From the Bridge.
Marilyn Monroe Young: Early Pictures Auction
Marilyn Monroe pictures taken during her first photo shoot – when she was still known as Norma Jeane Dougherty – will be auctioned following a September 2011 Florida bankruptcy judge’s ruling.
Proceeds from the selling of Monroe’s images and their copyrights will help to settle the debts of photographer Joseph Jasgur. Julien’s Auctions will handle the proceedings in their “Icons & Idols” auction, to be held Dec. 2-4 in Beverly Hills.
According to Julien’s Auctions chief Darren Julien, the Marilyn Monroe photos have been locked up for more than two decades as a result of court battles. Julien added that Jasgur was hired by the Blue Book modeling agency to shoot Norma Jeane, then 19 years old, about a year or two (depending on the source) before her film debut.
It’s unclear how much the images and copyrights will fetch. (Note: In a signed release for the photos, Norma Jeane “certifies and covenants” that she is at least twenty-one years of age.)
Following bit parts in several movies of the late 1940s, Monroe landed a few memorable supporting roles in Joseph L. Mankiewicz’s Oscar-winning classic All About Eve (1950), John Huston’s film noir The Asphalt Jungle (1950), and Howard Hawks’ comedy Monkey Business (1952). Monroe’s first lead was in Roy Ward Baker’s thriller Don’t Bother to Knock (1952).
Among Monroe’s most memorable star vehicles are Henry Hathaway’s Niagara (1953), with Joseph Cotten and Jean Peters; Hawks’ Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953), opposite Jane Russell; Billy Wilder’s The Seven Year Itch (1955), with Tom Ewell, and Some Like It Hot, with Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis; and Huston’s The Misfits (1961), co-starring with Clark Gable and Montgomery Clift.
Marilyn Monroe died, apparently a suicide, at the age of 36 on Aug. 5, 1962.

Russell Crowe Jor-El: ‘Man of Steel’ Set
Russell Crowe’s Jor-El doesn’t look at all like Marlon Brando’s, as can be attested by Man of Steel on-set pictures found at the Daily Mail (via Flynetpictures.com). As Superman’s papa, Crowe looks like a (admittedly, quite well-dressed) medieval wrestler; Brando, for his part, looked like a futuristic grey-haired wise man.
Lara Lor-Van, Superman’s mother, will be played by Angels & Demons’ Ayelet Zurer, replacing the previously announced Julia Ormond. Susannah York played Lara in Richard Donner’s 1978 Superman movie.
Also in Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot are Diane Lane and Kevin Costner as Superman’s adoptive parents (Phyllis Thaxter and Glenn Ford in the 1978 film), Amy Adams as Lois Lane (Margot Kidder in ’78), and Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman (Christopher Reeve in ’78). Also in the Man of Steel cast: Laurence Fishburne, Michael Shannon, Christopher Meloni, and Antje Traue.
Snyder, of course, is best known for 300, Sucker Punch, and Watchmen. Russell Crowe won a Best Actor Oscar for Ridley Scott’s Gladiator (2000). He was nominated two other times, for Michael Mann’s The Insider (1999) and Ron Howard’s Oscar-winning drama A Beautiful Mind (2001).
Man of Steel is scheduled to open on June 14.
Julia Roberts Evil Queen: Eye-Popping Costume Design
Remember the sweet Julia Roberts of Pretty Woman? Well, you don’t want to mess with this Julia Roberts. Definitely, not with that cleavage. Or those hands on hips. Or that upside-down tiara. Or that bright red dress. Or those white peacock feathers, whose tips are probably poisoned.
Red becomes Roberts, which can be seen above as the Evil Queen in Tarsem Singh’s upcoming Snow White movie – the one not starring Kristen Stewart. Roberts’ feathers, tiaras, and (I assume) apples will be aimed instead at Lily Collins, who can be currently seen in John Singleton’s thriller Abduction, starring none other than Stewart’s The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 co-star Taylor Lautner. See, Hollywood is just a little village. Everybody works with everybody else.
This as-yet-untitled Snow White movie also features Armie Hammer, Nathan Lane, Sean Bean, Mare Winningham, and Michael Lerner. Eiko Ishioka, who won an Academy Award for Francis Ford Coppola’s Dracula back in early 1993, will likely – at the very least – be nominated for another Oscar in early 2013. Singh’s Snow White project comes out via Relativity Media on March 16.
Julia Roberts’ Evil Queen clearly doesn’t appreciate the fact that Lily Collins’ Snow White is not only younger, but is also wearing a dress much too similar to the Queen’s. Collins’ Snow White has absolutely nothing to do with Kristen Stewart’s Joan of Arc-looking heroine in Snow White and the Huntsman. Collins’, in fact, is much closer to the Disney version – though they aren’t exactly alike, either.
Directed by Tarsem Singh, from a screenplay by Jason Keller and Melisa Wallack, itself adapted from Jacob Grimm and Wilhelm Grimm’s story (itself an adaptation of age-old European folk tales), this as-yet-untitled Snow White movie also features The Social Network‘s Armie Hammer, Nathan Lane, Sean Bean, Mare Winningham, and 1991 Academy Award nominee Michael Lerner (Barton Fink). Eiko Ishioka, who won an Academy Award for Francis Ford Coppola’s Dracula back in early 1993 designed the luxurious costumes.
Singh’s Snow White project comes out via Relativity Media on March 16, a few months ahead of Universal Pictures’ Snow White and the Huntsman.
Armie Hammer may or may not get to play opposite Johnny Depp in Gore Verbinski’s one-trillion-dollar version of The Lone Ranger. But Hammer, one of the stars in David Fincher’s Academy Award-nominated The Social Network, can already add the role of Prince Charming to his resume. In this still nameless Snow White project, Hammer is joined by Lily Collins as Snow White and a bosomy Julia Roberts as the Evil Queen.
Directed by Tarsem Singh, from a screenplay by Jason Keller and Melisa Wallack, itself adapted from one of Jacob Grimm and Wilhelm Grimm’s tales (themselves adaptations of age-old European folk stories), the Roberts-Collins Snow White movie also features Nathan Lane, Sean Bean, Mare Winningham, and Michael Lerner.
Singh’s Snow White project comes out via Relativity Media on March 16, a few months ahead of Universal Pictures’ Snow White and the Huntsman, which stars Kristen Stewart as Snow White, Chris Hemsworth as the Huntsman, Charlize Theron as the Evil Queen, and Sam Claflin as Prince Charming. Rupert Sanders is the director.
