Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have been named among the high-profile victims of Britain's News of the World phone hacking scandal.
A slew of U.K. celebrities, including actors Hugh Grant, Jude Law, Sienna Miller and Steve Coogan, previously learned their privacy had been compromised after a private detective working for the now-defunct tabloid intercepted voicemail messages from their cell phones, and on Tuesday (24Jul12), it was revealed that Pitt and Jolie had also been caught up in the controversy.
It is not known to what extent the Hollywood supercouple had been targeted.
The news emerged as prosecutors in London announced that eight people, including former News of the World editor Rebekah Brooks, will face criminal charges relating to the scandal, which took place between 2000 and 2006.
The suspects are due to appear at Westminster Magistrates' Court on 16 August (12) to answer the charges.
The collapse of the News of the World prompted the launch of The Leveson Inquiry, a wide-ranging investigation into press ethics in Britain, last year (11).
