Johansson and Kunis hacker sentenced

Scarlett Johansson

Nude photo hacker Christopher Chaney will spend a decade in jail for his crimes.

Christopher invaded the email accounts of Scarlett Johansson, Mila Kunis, Christina Aguilera, Renee Olstead and dozens of others last year. He then disseminated nude photos over the Internet.

The criminal pled guilty to nine felonies in March and faced up to 121 years in prison for the offences.

TMZ reports that Christopher was also ordered to pay $76,000 in restitution to his victims after being sentenced to 10 years behind bars.

Scarlett spoke previously about how being hacked impacted her life.

"It was really terrible; I felt absolutely violated," she told Stylist magazine.

"For a while, I thought it must be someone that I knew who was posting these pictures of me and that was making me incredibly paranoid. I was looking around at all of my friends, who I have known for 20 years, wondering who the backstabber was. So to find out it wasn't a friend who hacked in was a relief, oddly.

"Being hacked made me feel more vulnerable than I ever had previously."

If you're out of work, take this opportunity to rest and reflect on future possibilities.More
