Celebrities Privacy

From Jennifer Love Hewitt on the beach, to Julia Roberts at a school.

I was once at a movie screening, for the first film Mel Gibson directed (I'm glad he didn't know my moms side of the family is Jewish). And, someone was bugging him with questions about Lethal Weapon II as he was buttoning his pants coming out of the upstairs bathroom.

I've heard he's signed autographs while he's actually at the urinal, too.

Recently, Jennifer Love Hewitt, had photos taken of her at the beach. And some website, I believe TMZ, commented on her weight.

A day before that, Julia Roberts pulled some paparazzi over, and yelled at them, for following her to a kids school. She basically told them it's fine to take photos of her at events, restaurants, or premieres. But she felt a childs school should be off limits. And I agree.

George Clooney recently witnessed someone following him on their motorcycle. They ran red lights to stay with him, and broke a number of laws. There was film clip of him scolding the guy, and writing his license plate number down.

What will it take for laws to be put on the books giving these celebrities some privacy?

I'm not talking about Pam Anderson, going out clubbing until 2:00 a.m.

I think the celebrities should take a stand. Start macing any photograph that is in their path. Drive over their feet.

I guarantee, the law will be on their side. If your path is impeeded, I don't see how it can't be.

Alec Baldwin once punched a photographer, and broke his nose. The guy was outside his home when he arrived with a newborn baby.

He won that lawsuit.

Other stars should follow that lead.

Break a few noses. And a few camera lenses. Until they get the message.

Of course, the other cameramen that get that on film, will have a goldmine.

Hahahaha, good for Baldwin. I agree there is a limit but invasion of privacy is one of the pitfalls of fame. Also how many people really want to see the celebrity 24/? Publicity shots will do for me.

There are laws against what the paparazzi are doing already. Stalking, invasion of privacy, wreckless endangerment, libel, slander, and assault. The laws just don't get enforced. It's just part of the lifestyle they have to accept, like a cost of doing business.

Plus, like drugs, there is a demand that fuels this rabid photo market with all the magzines like Us, People, and the tabloids. So it's a matter of enforcing the laws. Just like the booze ban.
