Jude Law Gets $200,000 in Hacking Settlement! See Other Celebs Who've Been Hacked (PHOTOS)
Jude Law is getting a little payback for his phone being hacked, along with 37 other victims, The Associated Press reported on Thursday.
Rupert Murdoch's British newspaper company has obliged to pay Jude $200,00 for his phone being hacked between 2003 and 2006 where 16 articles were published about the Sherlock Holmes actor in the News of the World tabloid. Law said in a statement regarding his violation of privacy (via AP):

Jude added about the hacking, "For me, this case was never about money. It was about standing up for myself and finding out what had happened. I owed it to my friends and family as well as myself to do this."
Other celebs who have been victims of phone hacking (though not necessarily connected to News of the World) have been Scarlett Johansson, Blake Lively and Mila Kunis. Scarlett and Blake have both spoken out after alleged nude pics were posted of them.
ScarJo opened up about her hacked nude pics to Vanity Fair, saying, “I know my best angles. They were sent to my [then] husband [Ryan Reynolds] … There’s nothing wrong with that. It’s not like I was shooting a porno … Although there’s nothing wrong with that either.”
