Scarlett Johansson can breathe a bit easier today, as most websites have removed nude photos of her from their databases. From Perez Hilton to The Dirty, almost every site has deleted their nudes of the actressÂ—for fear of being sued.
“The highly personal and private photographs at issue capture our client self-posing in her own home in a state of undress and/or topless. If you fail to comply, you will be acting at your own peril,” read a letter sent out by Johansson’s attorney. The Washington Post confirms that several websites who received this letter have complied.
That being said, does this mean that all of the hacked photos of Scarlett Johansson are gone forever? Probably not. While her team of people can try to control their shelf life, several peopleÂ—and websitesÂ—have the photos saved. You can bet that a Google search for said photos will yield results today and next year. Once the hoopla has died down, there won’t be any immediate threat and websites may even put the photos back up again. Once you’re hacked, you can never go back.
