They are waiting — cameras and camcorders in their hands — every morning in front of the kindergarten gates. Some days, there are enough of them to block easy access to the school. They can be aggressive and frightening to a young child. And in the evening, when parents return to pick the youngsters up, they are back in full force again.Little wonder that Jennifer Garner finds herself tensing up whenever she takes her three-year-old daughter to preschool. Little wonder that she experiences mounting frustration and rage over the failure of the system to protect the children of celebrities from the harassment of the paparazzi.“Now, it’s worse because of the entire world of tabloid journalism,” she says bluntly. “Now, there are almost as many video cameras as there are film cameras and the situation has shifted so that a huge amount of their focus is put on the children of celebrities.” Which is why getting daughter Violet Anne to school each morning has turned into a nightmare for Garner and husband Ben Affleck.“To call it a ‘problem’ is the hugest understatement in the world,” she says passionately. “There are no laws protecting children. They have no right to privacy. Because my husband and I are public figures, it is assumed that our daughters are public figures, and there’s nothing to protect them.”… It’s that fierce love for her children that has sparked her outburst against the paparazzi this morning. “There are cars chasing us outside our home day and night — through red lights. There is absolutely nothing — nothing, nothing — on the side of care.” But preschool is the biggest ordeal. “When we go to preschool, there are so many paparazzi there that they are knocking kids on the heads with cameras and knocking them down.”She recalls one day when an elderly woman was knocked to the ground. “They’re there every single day, when I drop Violet Anne off and pick her up outside the gates. There are huge numbers of them — and they’re aggressive. They talk to her. They yell at her. They try to get her attention. They try to get her to react. It is a shame, shame, shame.”Garner admits there are some protective laws on the books in California, but they are difficult to enforce “unless there’s a police officer with you at all times.” She believes some kind of tough licensing legislation is needed to prevent the paparazzi from “making money off people who don’t want their picture to be taken.” She also suggests that celebrities, simply by reason of being celebrities, often don’t get a sympathetic hearing. http://www.celebitchy.com/50774/jennifer_garner_describes_how_the_paparazzi_taunt_her_3_year-old_daughter/I don't understand this desire to show Jennifer in a bad light, and make her seem like a famewhore. Does a more harmless celebrity exist?
