ESPN reporter Erin Andrews is dealing with the fallout involving a video that was secretly filmed and posted online showing her walking around her hotel room nude. But she isn't the only celebrity who's had to deal with invasions of privacy.

Andrews is now working with attorneys to track down the person who "surreptitiously videotaped" her while "in the privacy of her hotel room."

"Although the perpetrators of this criminal act have not yet been identified, when they are identified, she intends to bring both civil and criminal charges against them and against anyone who has published the material," attorney Marshall B. Grossman said .

Celebrities over the years have had to deal with the prying lenses of photographers who want to capture them in their most intimate moments. In 1997 photos surfaced in Playgirl magazine that showed Brad Pitt nude on a Caribbean beach . Pitt sued the magazine for invasion of privacy and a judge ordered that the magazines be removed from shelves.

In 2000 Jennifer Aniston sued Man's World Publications and Crescent Publishing Group for releasing photos of her sunbathing topless in her backyard. Hollywood.com reports that the photo was allegedly taken by a paparazzo who climbed a neighbor's walls to snap the shots of her. Aniston settled the suit for an undisclosed amount of money.

Last year actress Sienna Miller won a privacy case against a photographer who shot unauthorized photos of her on the set of the movie "Hippie Hippie Shake" in which she removed her clothes and entered a lake. Miller was paid about $60,000 in damages.
