Scarlett Johansson is fucking PISSED about someone hacking her cell phone and retrieving nude pics of her.

First, she enlisted the help of the FBI. Now, TMZ reports that Marty Singer, her lawyer, is going on the offensive, and has sent threatening emails to a number of websites letting them know that if they keep the photos up, they will face legal action:

Singer claims, "The highly personal and private photographs at issue capture our client self-posing in her own home in a state of undress and/or topless." And just to make sure he's perfectly clear, Singer concludes ... "If you fail to comply, you will be acting at your own peril. Please govern yourselves accordingly."

Not that we've looked or anything, but it seems as though most sites have complied.
