In an interview with Larry King for the promotion of her latest movie “The Tourist”, Angelina Jolie said she believed a law should be passed that protects celeb children from aggressive paparazzi.
“I do hope 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 gonna be clearer that it’s emotionally not healthy,” Angelina Jolie told Larry King.
When King asked if she believed there will ever be a “cure … for the paparazzi and the invasion of privacy,” Jolie responded, “I don’t think the hunger for it will ever go away, and so I think it will always be fed.”
As for how she and Brad Pitt are handling the current situation where no such rules exist, the actress said: “Well, we try not to get them into the middle of it… but when they do, we just have to kind of smile and say, ‘Don’t worry, it’s not scary.
They just like to take pictures. “As a parent, the only thing you can do is try to make sure that they don’t feel it’s a threat, you don’t act like it’s a threat, and you just keep smiling so they don’t feel anything negative.”
Larry King also questioned the actress on how she manages to keep a blance in her life with all the responsibilities she is known to have taken. Jolie, 35, told King she’s lucky to have Brad in her life and that the two enjoy raising their six kids together.
“I’m very, very lucky that I have a career where it seems like I’m very busy but I work for a few months and then I have months off. So my schedule is not as demanding as many, many mothers across the world who have two, three jobs and no help,” Jolie said. “When I was shooting “The Tourist,” for example, [Brad] was home with the kids, helping them with school, bringing them to set. We never work at the same time, we never separate the family, and that’s the best thing we can do to try to keep it all balanced.”
When asked about the possibility of enlarging their family, Angelina revealed: “[We have] no plans at the moment, but we’re always open.”
