Christopher Chaney, 35, who was arrested Wednesday, admitted to stealing pictures from Johansson and other celebrities, including Mila Kunis and Vanessa Hudgens, and posting them on the internet.
“I deeply apologise. I know what I did was probably one of the worst invasions of privacy someone could experience. And these people don’t have privacy to begin with. And I was in that little sliver of privacy they do have,” contactmusic.com quoted Chaney as saying.
“(The hacking) started as a curiosity and it turned into just being addicted to seeing the behind-the-scenes of what’s going on with these people you see on the big screen every day,” he added.
