(CBS) Scarlett Johansson says she felt wronged by the alleged phone hacking that led to nude photos of her surfacing online earlier this month.

The 26-year-old told CNN's David McKenzie that being an actress doesn't give people the right to invade her privacy.

When asked why it was important for her to protect her privacy, she responded: "Just because you're in the spotlight, or just because you're an actor or make films or whatever doesn't mean you're not entitled to your own personal privacy. If that is sieged in some way, it feels unjust. It feels wrong."

She added that the unwanted attention that comes along with being a celebrity is "an adjustment."

"It's an adjustment, but there are certain instances where you give a lot of yourself and then finally you just have to kind of put your foot down and say, 'No, wait, I'm taking it back,'" she said.

The photos of Johansson appeared online on Sept. 14. The FBI is reportedly investigating the incident, along with the hacking of private photos from other celebrities' cell phones and email accounts.
