Scarlett JohanssonWe get it, Scarlett Johansson. You're sexy. But you're also not very smart -- and that's evident to anyone who has a computer and the ability to perform a search on Google today. For the few who haven't heard yet, Scarlett is the newest member of the nude photo leak club. Quite an accomplishment! We're sure Vanessa Hudgens, Miley Cyrus, and Blake Lively gave her a warm welcome this morning when this steamy news spread like wildfire.
The question that keeps running through my head is ... how has this mistake happened this many times? Is taking naked photos on one's cellphone the new norm?
These celebrities are asking to be hacked! Not only are they taking the naughty photos, they're keeping them. It's a hacker's dream, really, and maybe that also of every guy browsing the Internet.
Here's what confuses me. These stars get photographed everywhere they go. Most of them complain that they can't walk down the street without a swarm of paparazzi following them. I just miss my privacy! But what exactly is private about sending an up close and personal picture of your butt to God knows who, ScarJo? The funny thing is, when these stars do finally get some privacy, they don't want it anymore.
Maybe instead of sending sleazy pictures from your cellphone, you can tell that guy you're sexting to pick up a copy of one of those umpteen magazines that you're on the cover of. Believe me, I'm sure it's a better solution than having your grandmother stumble across a picture of you lying naked in your bed while she's playing Bingo on the Internet.
And while I'm sure Scarlett has an excellent publicist who will try to spin this into something positive and make her out to be a victim, there are only so many excuses we will accept. Was she underage? Photoshopped? Doubt it. So maybe, just maybe ... she'll have to own up to this and accept the consequences.
The good news is maybe this will be (yet another) lesson to young women out there. If you want to see what you look like naked, look in the mirror, and if you're dying for your boyfriend to see you naked, maybe you can wait until there's a right time for that too ... Internet-free.
What do you think of the latest photo leak? Would you ever keep a naked photo on your phone?
