It was so worth it, right Christopher Chaney?

The 35-year-old Florida man, who admitted to hacking email accounts belonging to Scarlett Johansson, Mila Kunis and Christina Aguilera (among others), is due to enter a guilty plea in federal court Monday to nine felony offenses.

He'll receive a lighter sentence in exchange.

  • Scarlett Johansson, Hairstyle
  • Mila Pic

Christopher Chaney was looking at more than 100 years in prison for identity theft, unauthorized computer access and wiretapping that affected roughly 50 victims.

He is said to have hacked into the accounts and attached a bug that allowed him to receive a copy of every email sent by the unaware user. Not shady at all.

He would then shop some the goods, such as the Scarlett Johansson nude photos, to celebrity websites. Fortunately, the FBI eventually tracked him down.

Johansson, for her part, kept a sense of humor about the whole thing, telling Vanity Fair, "I know my best angles." Does she have any not-best angles?

Chaney, who is free on bail, albeit wearing an ankle monitor and prohibited from using computers, still will likely face prison time despite the plea deal.

Tom Hanks is speaking out after The Daily Caller, a conservative-leaning news site, posted a video featuring the actor and the Eagles' Glenn Frey emceeing an event at the private St. Matthew's Parish School in Pacific Palisades in 2004.

Why did this come up? A guy wearing blackface in the video.

The ostensibly shocking footage shows a fellow parent at the school dressed in what apparently was his interpretation of an African tribal costume:

Hanks responded to the blackface video in a statement today:

"For years I emceed the annual fundraising auction for my kids' school. Back in '04, I was blindsided when one of the parents got up on the stage in a costume that was hideously offensive then and is hideously offensive now."

"What is usually a night of food and drink for a good cause was, regrettably, marred by an appalling few moments."

Hanks and Rita Wilson's youngest son, Truman, is 16, and has since left St. Matthew's, which only runs until eighth grade. The school had no comment.

"It is St. Matthew's Parish School's policy not to comment on any press inquiries regarding fundraisers or other school events," a rep for the school said.

The NFL has suspended New Orleans Saints Head Coach Sean Payton for one year without pay.

The harsh penalty comes down a few weeks after it was revealed that Payton's team conducted its own "bounty" program on defense in 2009, as players pooled their own money and awarded one another for leveling such fierce, often illegal hits that opponents would be carted off the field.

The Saints also lost two second round draft picks and Gregg Williams, the defensive coordinator at the time, has been suspended indefinitely from his new job with the Rams.

Sean Payton

Said NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell in a statement:

"We are all accountable and responsible for player health and safety and the integrity of the game. We will not tolerate conduct or a culture that undermines those priorities. No one is above the game or the rules that govern it. Respect for the game and the people who participate in it will not be compromised."

What do you think of Payton's punishment?

The Bachelor’s Courtney Robertson isn't exactly a woman with a pristine reputation to start with, but there are even more skeletons in her closet, a tabloid claims.

Considering what we saw throughout the entire season of the show she - to the dismay of millions - won, the claims made by In Touch Weekly aren't shocking.

Whether they're true or not is a different story.

Courtney Robertson SECRETS!

With Ben Flajnik still trying to run damage control over his obvious ass grabbing pics, Courtney has been hiding some pretty racy stuff from her fiance, as well.

Chief among that stuff? Courtney Robertson nude photos.

The model did a full-on naked Playboy shoot, In Touch reports, plastering a little tease of one photo on the cover, which also claims she had a boob job.

The Playboy pics we can see ... the boob job not so much. There's plenty about Court that appears fake, sure, but her chest is not included on that list.

In Touch, which also hints at some (less-scandalous) Emily Maynard secrets, is clearly jumping on the Bash Courtney Bandwagon, but to what end?

Jamie Waylett of Harry Potter franchise fame has been sentenced to two years in prison for participating in the infamous London riots last year.

Authorities in Britain say Waylett was packing a Molotov cocktail while looting champagne from a drug store during the London riots August 8.

The actor was eventually identified in video footage taken during the incident, leading police officials to arrested Jamie Waylett on September 20.

Waylett, who has a previous conviction on record stemming from a drug-related incident, was found guilty of violent disorder and sentenced to two years.

He was acquitted on the charge of intending to destroy property with a fire bomb, so that's something. That two year term could have easily been 5-10.

No word on when Waylett is expected to begin his sentence.

Simone Farrow, an international swimsuit model accused of being the mastermind of a worldwide drug ring run out of a Hollywood apartment, has been arrested.

Farrow got popped in her native Australia after skipping bail last month.

Once the face of the Ed Hardy bikinis, Simone used up to 19 different aliases to ship methamphetamine around the world by FedEx and even the U.S. postal service.

According to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency and Australian police, the 37-year-old denied the charges and claims that she was in hiding after running for her life.

"The only reason I've done this is because someone was trying to murder me," she told Australia's Sunday Telegraph in response to the drug ring allegations.

"I've been in relationships with numerous underworld figures or whatever you want to call them and I feel that maybe they feel threatened by my situation."

Simone Farrow was first arrested in 2009 after flying to Australia as the DEA was raiding her Sunset Blvd. apartment, allegedly seizing drugs and documents.

After having a friend post her $150,000 bond in February, Farrow skipped bail. Police in Australia finally caught up with her last week at a Queensland hotel.

Kony 2012 filmmaker Jason Russell’s wife Danica is blaming her husband’s “irrational” naked public meltdown on “extreme exhaustion and dehydration.”

NOT alcohol, stunningly.

Danica Russell issued a statement addressing Jason Russell's naked freak-out, which allegedly included vandalizing cars and masturbating in public:

“Let us say up front that Jason has never had a substance abuse or drinking problem, and this episode wasn’t caused by either of those things."

NOTE: Wouldn't you want to blame it on one or the other? Just to explain it away as a one-time thing, however embarrassing, and move on?

"But yes, he did irrational things brought on by exhaustion and dehydration.”

The filmmaker’s wife said the scrutiny Jason Russell received after his now-infamous film about alleged warlord Joseph Kony went viral took a toll on him.

“While the attention raised awareness about Joseph Kony, it also brought much attention to Jason - and, because of how personal the [Kony 2012] film is, many attacks against it were also very personal, and Jason took them very hard.”

Russell allegedly was walking around an intersection wearing “speedo-like underwear.” He then removed the underwear and made "sexual gestures."

George Clooney was arrested this morning outside the Sudanese Embassy in Washington, D.C.

Clooney, George

The actor was taking part in an organized demonstration to draw attention to that country's president, Omar al-Bashir, who is responsible for countless deaths in the region due to his blockade of humanitarian aide.

Clooney - who has traveled to the country and said in the past we're going to face a genocide if action isn't taken - testified before Congress on Wednesday regarding the "campaign of murder" in that nation.

"This is for the government in Khartoum to stop randomly killing its own innocent men, women and children. Stop raping them and stop starving them. That's all we ask," USA Today quotes Clooney as saying after he was handcuffed and taken away today, following repeated warnings to leave the area.

Along with his father; U.S. Rep. Jim Moran (Dem.) of Virginia; NAACP President Ben Jealous and others, Clooney was placed in a Secret Service and has been charged with the misdemeanor of disorderly crossing a police line. Said the star's rep:

"They were protesting the violence committed by the government of Sudan on its own innocent men, women and children. They were demanding they allow humanitarian aid into the country before it becomes the largest humanitarian crisis in the world."
