London, Dec 9 (IANS) Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie wants a law to protect celebrities and their families from unscrupulous photographers.
The 35-year-old star has six children with her partner Brad Pitt and the famous family is a regular target for the paparazzi, reports contactmusic.com.
Jolie admits some snappers scare the youngsters by getting too close, and although she doesn't want to stop the photographers doing their job, she wishes a law was in place to force them to keep their distance and use long lenses to avoid unnerving the children.
"I do think and I do hope that there will at some point be laws about how close they can get to children with cameras. Because I think at some point it's going to be clearer that it's emotionally not healthy. And with long lenses, there's no need," she said.
"You know I'm somebody that I would like there to be a law about the distance they have to children. So I think we work for things like that. Something simple and practical," she added.
