`HACKERS' STARS DISCOVER REAL LIFE IMITATES THEIR ART

"Hackers" co-stars Jonny Lee Miller and Angelina Jolie have become victims of their own movie plot.

A group of real-life computer hackers found their way onto the Internet World Wide Web page for the new MGM/United Artists movie and left their own rather abrasive version in its place.The original Web site featured a big picture of Miller and Jolie. The hackers scribbled mustaches on them and gave them wild neon hair. Then they replaced mug shots of the other actors with a snapshot of their friends drinking beer.

The hack went down Aug. 12. The old site was back up a few days later.

"Although we don't condone them trashing our site," said MGM/UA spokesman Frank Lomento, "we certainly admire their creativity and ingenuity."
