Celeb Moms Push for Tougher Anti-Paparazzi Laws
Celebrity moms Jennifer Garner and Halle Berry spoke to the California State Legislature in support of an anti-paparazzi bill that would make it a crime for anyone to photograph or record a child without the permission of a legal guardian.
“My three children are private citizens, and more than that at one, four, and seven years old, they’re just little kids. The price paid for pictures of celebrity children is now absurdly high. There’s now a bounty on their heads every day. Literally every day, there are as many as 15 cars of photographers waiting outside our home,” Garner testified.
In Touch Weekly’s Jo Piazza reacted to the push on this morning’s America’s Newsroom. While Piazza sympathizes with these mothers trying to protect their children, she stressed that they are “celebrities who are paid so much more than the average American citizen, and what comes with that […] is giving up their privacy.”
Piazza also said that a number of celebrities, not necessarily Garner or Berry, do capitalize on their pregnancies and the fact that they are mothers. “The majority of celebrities are profiting off the fact that they’re mothers. They’re profiting off these paparazzi photos.”
