The man who hacked into Scarlett Johansson's private computer and leaked nude pictures of the actress online has been jailed for 10 years.
Christopher Chaney, 25, from Florida - who pleaded guilty to nine cyber hacking-related charges - was sentenced in a LA court on Monday.
Scarlett Johansson gave a tearful statement to the court
The sentence was passed by a US judge after they watched a tearful statement from the 'Lost In Translation' star.
U.S. District Judge S. James Otero told the defendant: "It's hard to fathom the mindset of a person who would accomplish all of this. These types of crimes are as pernicious and serious as physical stalking."
In response, Chaney said: "I don't know what else to say other than I'm sorry. I could be sentenced to never use a computer again and I wouldn't care."

Chaney hacked into Johansson's private accounts and stole naked pictures of the actress intended for her then-husband Ryan Reynolds, before publishing the images on the Internet.
Prosecutors said he accessed the private email and phone accounts of over 50 celebrities including Christina Aguilera and Mila Kunis.
