London: Actress Halle Berry is planning to reach out to US President Barack Obama to appeal for special child protection laws regarding the paparazzi presence outside kids’ schools after clashing with snappers last week.
The 45-year-old was picking her daughter Nahla up from a Los Angeles school when she lost her temper with photographers who got a little too close for comfort while taking photos of the pair, reported Contactmusic. Berry was caught on camera lashing out at the paparazzi as she tried to use her hand to shield her face, shouting obscenities at the snappers and yelling, “I’m doing something honourable. I’m not harassing people!”
The video of her rant was posted online and Berry has now opened up about the incident, saying she regrets the way she handled the situation. “I hate that I lost my cool, but you know, I’m human. That happens and when it comes to my daughter, I’m ferocious,” Berry said.
However, the actress insists something needs to be done to prevent photographers from harassing celebrity parents.
“There are no laws here that protect our children and, as a mum coming to the school… not only my child, but all the children that are there. It’s just wrong, wrong, wrong. You know, I think I’m going call Obama and say, ‘Look, can you help us? I know this seems like a little issue right now, but it’s a big issue in our lives and our lives at the school and our children being protected.'” Berry is currently fighting her ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry for custody of Nahla.
