The alleged “hackerazzi” who barely three weeks ago told a Florida TV station ago “I know what I did was probably the worst invasion of privacy someone could experience” pleaded not guilty Tuesday to 26 counts of cyber-crimes in federal court in Los Angeles. Christopher Chaney is accused of hacking into the email accounts of Scarlett Johansson, Mila Kunis, Christina Aguilera and others. His plea seems a far cry from “I’m not trying to escape what I did. It was wrong. And I have to just face that and go forward.” Chaney, 35, was arrested October 12 at his home in Jacksonville, Florida, after an 11-month investigation by the FBI. After Chaney was arrested, he told the TV station “It started as curiosity and it turned to just being addictive” and apologized. Johansson revealed to Vanity Fair in an interview that she sent the photos of herself — “I know my best angles” — to her husband at the time, Ryan Reynolds, and “there’s nothing wrong with that.”
