Halle Berry & Nahla: Shopping Buddies

Halle Berry & Nahla: Shopping Buddies

Actress Halle Berry was spotted doing a little shopping at Pavillions with her 4-year-old daughter Nahla in West Hollywood, Calif. on Sunday (May 19).

It seems Halle is calling on President Obama to seek help passing laws to protect children from paparazzi after an incident last week in which she lost her cool when photographers came uncomfortably close to her daughter. The Oscar-winning actress was caught on camera as she lost her temper outside a Los Angeles school Thursday, yelling at photographers, “I’m doing something honorable. I’m not harassing people.”

Although she regrets losing her temper, Halle is motivated to make sure her daughter and other children are no longer “harassed” by the paparazzi.

“There are no laws here that protect our children and, as a mom coming to the school … not only my child, but all the children that are there. It’s just wrong, wrong, wrong,” she says.

    Pretty sure Obama has alot more important things to do than make sure there are laws protecting celebrity children from paparazzi. What does that effect less than 1/100th of a percent of people in USA? Sounds like a case of a celebrity inflating their importance AGAIN.

      Yeah because those kids don’t deserve any kinda protection. She has no right to want her daughter to be safe.

      Wow. Just wow.

      ALL citizens of this country deserve to live in peace. ALL of them. It doesn’t matter if it affects 5 people or 5 million. This is a REAL issue, no matter that it doesn’t affect that many people. No one should be harassed and accosted walking down a street, especially a small child.

      You do know that it is not Obama who makes or vote the law, do you?

        I do understand that but does Halle? My comments refers to it not being up to Obama to make sure there are laws not make or vote on laws… he can only veto.
        to LaKesha, I did not imply that her child has NO right to protection I advised that our PRESIDENT has a few more people to worry about than celeb and their kids. Fame does have a price you can’t call PAPS when you want publicity and yell when you are not in the mood for a photo.
        Maybe it is time for that move to France (Let their new president deal with her need for PAPARAZZI LAWS)

      Exactly. It’s a little presumptuous to think that she can just pick up the phone and call Obama. It would make more sense for her to contact her legal team and see what avenue(s) she can pursue under EXISTING laws.

    She does not look good at all with her naturally curly hair…like a totally different person.

    I think she’s on the right pathe, maybe she shouldn’t have gone straight to Obama though. I would FREAK if someone was taking pictures of my kids and if they were lurking around/hiding, or even if they were close. I would be so super stressed all the time! I mean, look at Britney Spears, how she literally can’t walk at a normal pace because she is SWARMED by the paparazzi? That’s no way to live, famous or not!

    I like the way Nahla is always dressed, cute and a little bit sophisticated but always age appropriate. Sweet little family!

    I think Halle needs to familiarize herself with existing laws before she takes it upon herself to bother the President. According to ABC News’ web site:

    Berry, however, appears to be unaware of the myriad of laws that have already been put in place to protect her and her child from such unwanted intrusions from paparazzi. California’s 10-year-old anti-paparazzi statute, for instance, was given added traction two years ago.

    The original statute, which came in the wake of Princess Diana’s death in Paris as she was being followed by paparazzi, expanded the reach of the California trespass law when it created a civil damages cause of action for three tactics commonly used by paparazzi to gain photos and footage of stars.

    The stature first made actionable the “physical invasion of privacy law,” which created damages when a person enters another’s property to record an image, video or sound. Secondly, it created a new statutory tort that functions as a “technological trespass” law, which makes photographers liable if they use an enhancing device to record from afar, such as a telephoto lens or parabolic microphones. Thirdly, the stature made actionable any assault “committed with the intent to capture” images, video or sound.

    The 2010 additions stipulated that media outlets using material proven to have been published using such invasive tactics would be subject to special damages, punitive damages and a civil fine ranging from $5,000 to $50,000.

    All this whining about the paps is just her setting up her petition to move to France and keep Nahla from her father. She wasn’t upset a few weeks ago when she was staging her happy family outing with the fiance on the beach. She needs to get over herself.

      If you’re trying to imply that she is less than honorable for acting in that movi3e, what does it make you for watching it?

        That makes me someone who wants two hours of her life back. At least I’m not one of likely countless men who have spanked it to her “honorable work”

        Someone who wants her eight dollars and two hours back after enduring her crap acting. Of course creating masturbation material for half the male population and calling it art is totally honorable. Sorry to have implied otherwise.

    I find it funny how she want’s laws to protect celebrity children, however she doesn’t follow the law herself. Like in 1997 when she caused a car accident and fled the scene. I believe the woman who was injured that Halle gave no assistance to is paralyzed. There should be consideration for her and her family; while she had none for that woman.

    maybe she should just retire from public life, move away somewhere remote and quiet and raise her daughter and whoever her man of the moment is.
    that would keep the paps out of her space and spare us from her arrogance.
