In September of 2011, Scarlett Johansson's name appeared in the news as two embarassing pictures of her appeared on the internet. These two nude photos of Scarlett Johansson caused quite a stir in the blogosphere, prompting Scarlett Johansson to order her lawyers to contact websites that posted the photos and give them a cease and desist order and to take the nude photos of Scarlett Johansson down. Both photos appear to have been taken by Scarlett Johansson herself, one shows her shooting the picture over her shoulder in a mirror, with her nude backside revealed. The other picture shows Scarlett Johansson reclining, with her arm extended (holding her cell phone), and the resulting nude photo shows Scarlett Johansson's right breast.
