Halle Berry, Jennifer Garner Support Paparazzi Bill

Expecting mommy Halle Berry was back in Sacramento on Tuesday to support proposed legislations that would restrict the paparazzi’s ability to photograph the children of celebrities. But she didn’t go at it alone.


The bill, Senate Bill 606 by Sen. Ken DeLeon (D-Los Angeles), would amend the definition of harassment to include taking pictures of children without the permission of a legal guardian.


Fellow actress and mother of three Jennifer Garner was also on hand to speak about the issue in front of a legislative committee.


This is Berry’s second time addressing the matter; the Academy Award winner has had trouble in the past with prying paps snapping photos of her five-year-old daughter Nahla.


On the other side, media organizations argue that the bill will interfere with journalists’ news gathering tasks.


The bill was passed and will head to the Appropriations Committee.
