Celeb Cyberstalker Sentenced to 10 Years in Prison

iStockphoto/Thinkstock(LOS ANGELES) -- Christopher Chaney, the 36-year-old who admitted to hacking and posting online pictures of celebrities like Scarlett Johansson and Mila Kunis, was sentenced to 10 years in prison in a Los Angeles courtroom on Monday.

Chaney was also ordered to pay more than $66,000 in restitution.

Johansson tearfully testified via a pre-recorded video about how humiliated she was that nude pictures she'd taken for then-husband Ryan Reynolds had leaked. 

Disney actress Renee Olstead testified in person, revealing that Chaney's posting of her nude pics led to a suicide attempt.

Chaney, who admitted to cyberstalking some 60 victims, was arrested in October 2011 as part of a year-long investigation.

Scarlett Johansson Says She Never Goes Without Makeup

Kevin Mazur/WireImage(LOS ANGELES) -- ScarJo never goes au naturel.

The 27-year-old We Bought a Zoo actress revealed in an interview with Style magazine that though she went make-up free for the movie, off screen, she relies on red lipstick -- at the very least.

“I like to feel a little more together -- you never know who you’re going to see out there!” she is quoted as saying in the U.K.’s Daily Mail. “My absolute must-have is a really rich and vibrant red lipstick. I always keep red lipstick in my bag because I never know when I might show up to an event and be completely under-dressed.”

“I always like to put a little bit of make-up on,” she added. “I’m not the kind of person that just slops around in sweatpants.”

Guess we know who won’t be lounging around in PJs Christmas morning.

Scarlett Johansson Says Marriage Was 'The Best Thing I Ever Did'

Kevin Mazur/WireImage(LOS ANGELES) -- In the latest edition of Cosmopolitan, Scarlett Johansson opens up about her two-year marriage to Ryan Reynolds.

She says of their union, "It seemed like a very romantic thing to do, and it was. It was the best thing that I ever did."

When it is put to her that perhaps she entered married life with Reynolds at too young an age, the 27-year-old actress comments, "Relationships are complicated...and being married is a living, breathing process.  I think I was not fully aware of the peaks and the valleys.  I wasn't prepared to hunker down and do the work."

Johansson adds, "I'm a big believer in instinct. Getting married was the right thing to do because it was natural. It grew out of a romance and love and a desire to have a future with somebody and I was very fortunate that I married somebody who turned out to be the person I thought he would be."

Johansson and Reynolds split last December.

Animal Rights Group Seeks Warning on New Matt Damon Film

Gary Gershoff/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- A new movie starring Matt Damon and Scarlett Johansson has become the subject of a special request by the folks at PETA in the wake of the killing of dozens of wild animals at a farm in Ohio.

In the movie, We Bought a Zoo, Damon stars as a father who moves his family to the countryside to help save a struggling zoo. Johansson takes the role of a keeper at the park, home to lions, tigers, zebras and bears, among other creatures.

The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has sent a letter to the film's director, Cameron Crowe, urging him to include a warning at the end of the movie about the dangers of owning wild animals. In a statement, PETA’s Lisa Lange says, “We Bought a Zoo conveys the misleading and downright dangerous message that no special knowledge -- just a lot of heart is needed -- to run a zoo.”

The animal rights group also insists that the studio behind the film, 20th Century Fox include warnings on all marketing materials, including movie posters, reports E!
