A federal judge on Monday sentenced a hacker to 10 years in prison after he broke into the personal online accounts of Scarlett Johansson, Christina Aguilera and other women and posted revealing photos and other material on the Internet.

U.S. District Judge S. James Otero sentenced Christopher Chaney in Los Angeles after hearing from a tearful Johansson in a videotaped statement.

The biggest spectacle in the case was the revelation that nude photos taken by Johansson of herself were posted online.

“I have been truly humiliated and embarrassed,” Johansson said.

Prosecutors said Chaney illegally accessed the email accounts of more than 50 people in the entertainment industry between November 2010 and October 2011.

Scorsese takes on Clinton project

Martin Scorsese has found his next film subject: Bill Clinton.

The Oscar winner will produce and direct a documentary on the former president for HBO, the network announced Monday.

The documentary will explore the 42nd president’s time perspective on history, politics and the like during his time in office and the years since – with Clinton offering his full cooperation.

The longtime filmmaker, behind cinematic spreads such as “Goodfellas” and “The Departed,” offered a statement regarding Clinton as a subject:

“A towering figure who remains a major voice in world issues, President Clinton continues to shape the political dialogue both here and around the world. Through intimate conversations, I hope to provide greater insight into this transcendent figure.”
