A man accused of accessing saucy photos of stars including Scarlett Johansson and Mila Kunis by hacking into their email accounts has apologised to victims of the scandal.
Christopher Chaney, 35, was arrested at his home in Jacksonville, Florida on Wednesday (12Oct11) and charged with 25 counts of identity theft before being released on $10,000 (£6,250) bail.
Now he has spoken out to apologise to celebrities who fell victim to the hacking - and he admits he was relieved when cops first busted him earlier this year (11) because he had become "addicted" to spying on the rich and famous.
Chaney tells Action News Jacksonville, "It started as curiosity and it turned into just being addicted to seeing behind the scenes of what was going on with these people you see on the big screen every day, and I was almost relieved months ago when they (the police) came in, took my computer, and told me what was going on, that they knew - because I didn't know how to stop doing it myself.
"I don't know. I wasn't attempting to break into emails and get stuff to sell or purposefully put on the internet. I just - I don't know... I mean, I've always used computers - you know, gaming, Facebook, the things everybody uses computers for. Honestly, I don't remember how or when it started, or with who it started. It just happened and snowballed...
"I deeply apologise (to the victims). I know what I did was probably one of the worst invasions of privacy someone could experience, and these people don't have privacy to begin with. I was in that slither of privacy that they do have. And I have had six months to think about it and it eats at me.
"When you are doing it you're not thinking about what's going on with who you are doing it to. Pure curiosity is how it started, and I wish it hadn't."
