The juice he found is RICH!! Especially for the committed Hollywood enthusiast!
Chris Chaney, the man behind Scarlett Johansson's nude photo scandal, reveals how he did it. Why he did it. And what else he found when he did it!!!
You ready to ride with us on this?? Cause you need to BUCKLE UP!!
In the latest issue of GQ, the 35-year-old says it all started when scandalous midriff baring photos of Miley Cyrus hit the internet.
He thought to himself, "How hard could this be?" So he started inputting celebrity names into Gmail (last name, first name) and kept going until he racked up a number of winning addresses.
Once he had those, he started on the passwords. With security questions asking for favorite colors and school names, all he had to do was some Google sleuthing and DING DING DING!!
Soon enough, he was reading over the personal emails from more than 50 people in the industry. He saw EVERYTHING! The hook-ups, the secrets, which films were gonna make it and which weren't, etc!! He was the kid in that candy shop everyone DREAMS OF!!
Recalling the early days, he explains he kept going because:
I don't want to compare it to throwing a touchdown pass, but it was a rush. It's the whole Star Trek thing. Going where no man has gone before. You feel like you've seen something that the rest of the world wanted to see. But you're the only one that's seen it.
The romances in Hollywood are WILDER than ever he says, with "everyone dating everyone eventually" and A-list actors keeping their relationships a secret by dating in places like Canter's Deli at 3am! He even got to see the depressing emails Ryan Reynolds and Scarlett sent each other throughout the divorce. Sadsies…
Speaking of ScarJo, she wasn't the first superstar he found nude pics of. Oooh NO. Remember those pics of Christina Aguilera trying on pasties?? He came across those in her stylist's email!!
There were even photos of A-list actresses in their 40s taking nude photos, though he won't identify those names.
And while everyone else would be most interested in the scandalous secrets and romances, it was the production dirt that most excited him. He LOVED reading location scouts' emails, saying:
I thought that was one of the awesomest [jobs]. They go around, find these places, take pictures of them, and send them to the directors. It was cool seeing a part of the process that nobody ever sees.
Then he got some GREAT deets on Justin Timberlake's In Time! According to him, there was A LOT of hassle just to find a stripper who could be one of the actress' body doubles.
Mila Kunis made him laugh a lot when he read the chains from the Friends With Benefits crew. She was all jokes. And despite rumors of her and JT exchanging naughty sexts and pics, he swears he never saw anything that even hinted at that.
Of course, we ALL remember when those saucy pics of Scarlett made their way into the public arena… and that's when it all crashed down on him. Wow O Wow… What a life!
So take this as a warning, everyone!! Make sure U use CLEVER passwords and even better security questions!!! FOR REALZIES!!
