“I chose a public life… [but] my three children are private citizens,” Jennifer stated in court. “I love my kids.

    I am so happy celebs are finally taking steps to do this! How paparazzi stalk these people is horrible and wrong. Adults and kids but especially kids. I hope she is successful in getting laws to stop these crazies from stalking and photographing her kids- that would be great. I always feel so bad for them!

    Jennifer wouldn’t have all those cosmetic endorsements, or magazine cover shots if she had kept herself and her family out of the limelight. People see her with her kids and they’ve become interested in her and her family life. Same thing goes for Haley Berry. Many celebrities have been clever enough to keep their families out of the spotlight by moving out of the HOLLYWOOD scene, if it was privacy they treasured.

    Do you realize how ridiculous it looks to publish this story alongside paparazzi pictures of her kids?

    Its too hard to feel sorry for these people when they choose to live in Los Angeles. Plenty of celebrities get by without having photographers stalk them by living somewhere else. It’s a big country. They chose to have children being famous people. Go see my movie and give me an Oscar, but please don’t be interested in my children?? Give me a break.

    Though I will say I wish the photographers wouldn’t speak to them or shout at the children.

    She has no problem parading them around when it’s Award season and her hubby needs the good ‘family’ press..or any other season, She has the money to move to a small town in Idaho but no she stays in LA and does a crap job of shielding her kids from the papz, other more high profile celebs do a Much better job at it than her.

    @DillPickle:

    What? So because as she stated “she chose a public life, BUT HER KIDS DID NOT”. How much more simple does it have to be. Paparazzi, to me, are nothing but celebrity wannabe’s or sychophants, preying on others for a freakin photograph and to make a living at this? LOL. She has every right to PROTECT HER CHILDREN, just as I have every right to protect mine; celebrity with endorsements or not.

    She chose the public life, as did Halle Berry and also chose to have children. They chose to bring them into this world knowing damn well what kind of environment they were getting them into. They’ve got no one to blame but themselves.

    Yes, the pap would get on my nerves as well if I was a celebrity, but that is a life you chose. Don’t want it? back out of it and get a regular job like regular folk where people don’t give a flying crap about who you are, what you do and how many kids you’ve got. But they will never do that, why? Because they want the money, sorry but it comes with the territory.

    children of celebs will always be of interest to the public.
    before the net they were in magazines and tv.
    if you don’t want anyone interested in your life and kids, don’t be famous, simple as that.

    SunnyAutumnn Says:

    All I can say is you can’t have it both ways. They love to show off the kids when they have a film coming up, Jennifer and Halle, cheesing it up so hard, grinning from ear to ear.

    Maddy Says:

    I do feel bad for the children because they didn’t get a choice between a public and private life. But it comes with the territory, sorry. The parents chose a public life and they chose to bring children into that public life. So that’s where they make it hard for people to really feel bad for them. There’s a million other jobs these people could have had, and they chose this one. Either roll with it or MOVE! USA has plenty of cities with a lot of activities to be had and great homes, that don’t have paparazzi. These people have great lives and get paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to just show up places, I don’t see a lot of room for complaint.

    Lilly Says:

    @SunnyAutumnn: I agree. You don’t get to be famous AND make tons of money AND work only when you want to AND complain AND expect to have children with no interest to anyone. There’s just too many people out there who have real world problems like paying the bills when its due, putting food on the table and keeping a roof over their heads for THEIR children and family, not some paparazzi.

    XxXxX Says:

    This is downright R-I-D-I-C-U-L-O-U-S ! She says it herself, she chose this life. I’m sorry but she knew what she was getting into when she did. I mean… POOR THING. Oh, poor famous little rich woman. How hard it must be to lead a luxury life with many people interested enough to want to have your pics. You know what? I’d be SO happy if the paparazzis granted them their wish and would completely stop following them to get pics. Then, there would be no pictures of them on tabloids and they’d (Her and Berry) realize how much they need the papparazzos to be there “all day everyday” (as she puts it). Without the papparazzis they are NOTHING. Let’s be honest here, Jennifer Garner?? She did what? Elektra? I don’t know any other movie she was in. Well, no other that was remarkable enough. Halle Berry? Maybe she’ll still be someone but UGH. How annoying they are to whine about the people who keep them in the spotlight. I bet you anything that if the paparazzi’s ever stop following them, THEY would be the ones BEGGING for attention and wanting them to be at their doors everytime they open them. But really, I hope the paparazzis stop so that some sense will come into those celebrities. Only thing they can do is complain –’

    THEN MOVE OUT OF LOS ANGELES YOU STUPID IDIOT.

    I do not feel one ounce of sorrow for that fool. WHY does she have to live there? She hardly works and Ben can commute in when he’s working. Demi raised her kids in Idaho for goodness sakes and her and Bruce were successful during that period.

    No laws should be changed. You want to stay there, you deal with it.

    You all are way to spiteful. Celebrities have also a right to get children, like every other human has. You dont need to talk so mean about them, just because they are rich and in the public.The Papz are since years wayyyyy out of her line. Calling Suri a ***** was just one of many times where they broke boundaries. This Papz are no professionals. And enough of them only move to LA to make a living by stalking celebs day and night and taking pics of them and their kids. No need to defend this rats and their behaviours just because for you all its somehow celebs fair share of hell.

    If it’s so dangerous for their kids, why don’t they move. If you’re so worried about your kids, you’d be a negligent parent not to put your kids’ safety first and get out of Dodge. They could live anywhere.

    Instead, they KEEP their kids in this purported traumatic environment.

    Both women had children after they were famous and after the internet exploded – they knew the life they were handing their kids yet didn’t do anything to protect them like move or be low profie. They expect the world to conform to their demands. Other celebs live in LA and are low key because they don’t trot their kids out for family pap shots when it serves them, and then whine about it when it doesn’t.

    They are probably just mad that the paps will know their secrets like if they have a fake marriage, etc. And that the paps will make money off the photos. Pretending you’re concerned about your kids is an easy way to get public sympathy.

    The pols who wasted taxpayer time on this should be RECALLED. There are a lot of urgent serious issues taking down California and this is completely frivolous.

    Why can’t they move to Ben’s hometown – Boston? Or even move down to San Diego or something. I highly doubt paparazzi will stalk them in those locales. I do not support this new bill and hope it gets shot down. It’s a slippery slope when you start messing with our privacy laws. ANYONE in public can be photographed and it should remain that way. These celebs are quite annoying.

    Like who? And don’t say Angie and Brad because they’re constantly out of the country and many nannies or Matt because his wife isn’t as famous.
    They have lived the same way since they have gotten married .It’s just now more people are paying attention to everything they do.

    @sarah:
    Jolie and Pitt are a good example. They live in LA most of the year. The difference is that Jolie an Pitt avoid places where the paparazzi are and do everything to not be photographed. The paparazzi have said it’s hard to catch Jolie and Pitt even when they wait for them outside their house because Jolie and Pitt use decoy cars and other diversions to fool them.
    Jolie and Pitt have 4 nannies. Garner has 2.
    It would be easy for Garner not to be photographed or not let the kids be photographed. All she had to do is not take them to the same places every single day. They are photographed because they want. She can let the kids at home when she goes to starbucks get her coffee. Maybe she could get a good coffee machine?

    Yeah great examples!But where are they now. They ‘re divorced .Demi is a has-been actress,and mostly known for being a cougar and Bruce is still trying live his glory days as action star married to a model 24 yrs younger than him .And their children are a complete mess.
