Halle Berry Talks Paparazzi: 'Our Children Should Be Off Limits'

Halle Berry has been very vocal about the growing problem of the persistent paparazzi, who often try their hardest to snap pictures of the star with her 4-year-old daughter, Nahla. Now the actress is looking to change the laws when it comes to photographing children.

"We are going to figure out what we can do on our local level in Los Angeles to sort of change some laws because it is becoming child exploitation," the 45-year-old actress told Access Hollywood correspondent Jill Martin at the Revlon ColorStay Whipped Creme Makeup launch in New York on Tuesday.

The actress has become frustrated with seeing her daughter and the kids of other stars in the pages of magazines and tabloids.

"When I open up all these magazines and I see all these children in them. Nahla was just in a magazine and they said, what does she - and I think Gwen Stefani's kid - have in common? They were both nose pickers and I thought, 'You know we are stooping to a new low when we prop up our children and exploit them like this.' And people can't wait to open up a magazine and see what 4-year-olds are wearing. There is something wrong, fundamentally wrong, with that," she continued.

Halle acknowledges that photographers should be allowed to take her picture, but not her daughter's.

"Our children should be off limits. They are innocent little babies that should not be exploited all over these magazine. I'm fair game, I get that, but my kids [and] kids at my children's school should not be harassed like that," Halle stressed. "It's just wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong and wrong."

Adding, "When you have these creepy guys with cameras lurking around it's really hard for parents, myself and other parents, teachers, principals, to discern who's supposed to be there... it's just a chaos and a confusion that doesn't need to surround where little kids play and where they live and what their world is. It's just not right."

    Beyonce’s #Flawless image is embroiled in controversy once again. On Wednesday, a web site called The Beyonce World leaked 224 allegedly raw photos of the musician. The images showed Bey in full makeup for the 2013 L’Oreal ad campaign — but with the kinds of “imperfections” we all have — beauty marks, bumps, creases. In the wake of Cindy Crawford’s unretouched photos, the images have been praised by critics of a beauty industry that sets impossibly high standards, standards that Queen Bey …
