Naked pictures of Scarlett Johansson posted online

Naked pictures of sultry Hollywood starlet Scarlett Johansson - one of which showing the actress's bottom - have appeared online.

The images could offer an insight into the celebrity's sex life, which may include the use of condoms, but the Lost in Translation performer has been angered at the release and claimed hackers stole the photographs from her mobile phone.

Despite this, Johansson admitted to taking the racy snaps and, in doing so, becomes the latest in a line of celebrities to have seen their private bedroom antics made public.

The FBI has been brought in to catch the perpetrators and said a group of criminals are thought to have raided the handheld devices of a number of famous female faces including Jessica Alba and Vanessa Hudgens.

It stated: "We are investigating a series of cyber intrusions of high-profile figures."

Johansson has appeared in a number of high-profile motion pictures down the years, including The Prestige, Girl with a Pearl Earring and Vicky Cristina Barcelona.
