George Clooney and other Bollywood celebrities have requested the media to respect the privacy of celebrities when it comes to publishing their children’s pictures. In a letter to The Daily Mail, she has asked for a curb in publishing photos and intruding into their lives.
George Clooney has stood up for Bille Lourd, the 29-year-old daughter of Carrie Fisher. The pictures of her one-year-old daughter were circulated without her consent. The paper removed them, but only after the actor objected.
George Clooney wrote that he expected the paper to refrain from publishing pictures of celebrity children. He said that as a public figure he was willing to accept a level of intrusion as a part of his profession. But children should be spared this level of interference in their lives.
George Clooney Has Said That Media Intrusion Endangers Lives
The Syriana actor also said that his wife, Amal, an international barrister, had to deal with dangerous terrorists as part of her profession. So it becomes necessary in such a situation that the media play its part in protecting such families.
George Clooney said that publishing pictures of such children would put them at grave risk. He said that he wasn’t being paranoid and these are grave issues with potential consequences. He said that the safety of such children was greater than advertisement revenues.
The consensus is that children should be out of the media focus on celebrities. Other well-known parents, including Ashton Kutcher, Katy Perry, Mindy Kaling, Orlando Bloom have all felt that children deserved their privacy.
Mindy Kaling, actress and comedian, has shared that while she loved to be on the social platform, she preferred keeping her daughter out of the glare.
Blake Lively had attacked The Daily Mail after they published photographs of her children despite a repeated request from her and Ryan Reynolds, her husband. The tabloid had shared a picture collage of their children. Sophie Turner objected to the paparazzi that took pictures of Willa Jonas, her daughter, without her consent. Gigi Hadid had also penned an open letter regarding her daughter’s privacy. She hoped that was a conversation to protect minors from the intense media glare.
