The FBI has made an arrest in connection with the hacking of nude photos from Scarlett Johannson's cell phone. 

At least one person was arrested Wednesday on federal charges that he hacked into emails of Johannson and other celebrities.

Nude photos of the The Avengers star were distributed on various celebrity websites last month after they were allegedly taken from her mobile phone by hackers. Johansson -- who has never appeared fully nude in any of her films -- reportedly called in the FBI to help get to the bottom of the intrusion.
