Halle Berry describes daughter's harassment terror

The Associated Press, Tuesday, June 25, 2013, 12:59pm (PDT)

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Actress Halle Berry has testified in favor of California legislation that would limit the ability of paparazzi to photograph the children of celebrities.

With dozens of journalists tailing her through the Capitol in Sacramento, Berry said Tuesday her daughter doesn't want to go to school because of the dozens of paparazzi that lie in wait and then jump out to take pictures of the 5-year-old with her Academy Award-winning mother.

The Assembly Committee on Public Safety later voted in favor of the bill, despite opposition from journalism advocates who warned it could thwart newsgathering operations.

The bill's author promised to tweak the anti-harassment bill to protect reporters and photographers.
