Scarlett Johansson insists there was "nothing wrong" with her taking nude photographs of herself.
The 26-year-old beauty - who split from husband Ryan Reynolds last December - was horrified earlier this year when hackers accessed the images from her mobile phone and posted them online and while she was unhappy the pictures were made public, she thinks she looks good in them.
She said: "I know my best angles. They were sent to my husband. There's nothing wrong with that. It's not like I was shooting a porno. Although there's nothing wrong with that either."
Following the end of her marriage, Scarlett felt "very uncomfortable" and struggled to find anything that would hold her interest.
She told the new issue of America's Vanity Fair magazine: "I didn't really know what to do with myself. It was such a strange time. There was nothing that was interesting to me. I had a very public separation. It was difficult. I felt very uncomfortable." Scarlett has appeared in several movies by acclaimed director Woody Allen and she believes their enduring friendship is her willingness to indulge his hypochondria.
She said: "He shakes a lot of hands. I'll squirt some [Purell] in my hand and then squirt in his. The only reason why Woody and I are still friends is because I've diagnosed all kinds of his skin tags, lesions, ailments. I've prescribed things for Woody that he's then asked his doctor to prescribe for him."
