If convicted, Christopher Chaney could face up to 121 years behind bars...
A 35-year old man has been arrested on suspicion of hacking Hollywood actress Scarlett Johansson's mobile phone.
According to People, Christopher Chaney from Florida was arrested on Sunday in connection with the alleged offence, which saw sexy naked snaps of the Lost In Translation star leak online last month.
Chaney is also accused of hacking personal information from the likes of Mila Kunis, Christina Aguilera and many other A-List names, changing their passwords and setting accounts to automatically forward him emails.
FBI assistant director Steven Matinez confirmed news of his arrest, stating: "This [arrest] comes as a relief to the victims, many of whom suffered great distress."
Chaney has reportedly been charged with 26 counts of computer hacking, as well as aggravated identity theft and wiretapping. If convicted, he faces up to 121 years in federal jail.
Johansson previously addressed the leak of her nude pics, telling CNN: "Just because you’re in the spotlight, or just because you’re an actor or making films or whatever, doesn’t mean that you’re not entitled to your own personal privacy,”
The 26-year old added: “I think no matter what the context, if that is besieged in some way, it feels unjust. It feels wrong.”
