“I would do anything to protect them, I would literally die for them without a moment’s thought,” Blake said about her daughters, James, 2, and Ines, 6 months. “For those of you who have children, I think you know what I’m talking about. I mean if you think of what you would do for you child, I don’t think there’s anything you wouldn’t ask yourself.”

“I didn’t really know what child pornography was, I was afraid to ask, as a mother, because it would be painful to hear,” she went on. “But I felt like I had to ask, and I feel like I have to share it with you guys now. It is disturbing, and I want to warn you, but I feel like it’s my responsibility to tell you guys because it is the truth, and I believe if we all knew this, we would dedicate much more of ourselves to stopping it.”

Blake has partnered with the Child Rescue Coalition to help achieve her goals. You can donate to the organization here.

    I really like her! Terrific actress but this was by far the most believable I’ve seen of her. Thank you to her for stepping out and being a voice, using her very public platform to devote it to the prevention of pedophilia. I believe i’ll check out this website. No child should ever be violated and their innocence taken from them. No child! Ever!! I’m proud of her and like her even more now.

  • Anna

    Thank you for writing this comment. It really pissess me off how hyprocritcal she is. She was praising Woody Allen, having no issues working with him, and even plugged her ears and went “lalalala” whenever someone mentioned Allen molesting his girlfriend’s daughters and even marrying one. It’s hard to take her seriously. She’s real dumb, shallow, and a horrible actress.

    She’s the worst. She’ll go into bat for nameless children but not for the children of famous Hollywood directors, oh no, that could upset her precious career…shes so gross.
