Naked pictures of Scarlett Johansson have apparently been leaked online after the star’s phone was hacked earlier this year. At the time it was suggested the nude images may have existed.

The pictures appear to have been taken by Johansson herself and, although some are questioning whether the images are the real deal, do appear to be of the actress.

The naked pictures allegedly show Johansson posing in front of a bedroom mirror. A towel covers her front, but a bottom – possibly hers – can be seen.

In another, Johannson, appears to be lying on a bed taking a picture of herself in which her breast is visible.

It has not be confirmed whether the pictures are actually of the star, or if they’re a clever Photoshop job.

Johansson will not be the first star to have her phone hacked to reveal nude pictures. Both Vanessa Hudgens and Blake Lively suffered a similar fate earlier this year, although it was denied that the pics were real.

According to sources, police are currently investigating a ‘Hollywood phone hacking ring’.

No statement has yet been made by Johansson’s management but the actress has said to have involved the FBI in the leak.
