John Travolta On Kate Middleton: 'There Is A Right To Privacy Whether You're Famous Or Not'

| Filed under: Royals RoyceJohn TravoltaKate Middleton

John Travolta hasn't had any naked pics published around the world, but he has received his fair share of tabloid attention, so he can totally sympathize with Kate Middleton.

Although foreign magazines that have been showing off photographs of the Duchess of Cambridge sunbathing topless have been paying a hefty price for their actions, the blatant disregard for her privacy is pretty shocking.

During a recent BBC interview to promote the UK release of Savages, Travolta stated that EVERYONE has a right to privacy — famous or not — and explained:

"There is a right to privacy whether you're famous or not famous, and I feel that anyone being invaded at that level is unfortunate and there should be a law, no one would like that."

As we all know, he's gotten VERY used to everybody gettin' all up in his biz since those allegations of sexual misconduct surfaced. Thanks to the internet and technology, he's willing to argue that it is the WORST time to be a celebrity and explained:

"It's probably the worst time to be famous in the history of fame because of the internet and the level of invasion."

He's got a good point.

While celebrities used to see clunky cameras coming from a mile away, anybody and their grandmother can record them on their cell phone and upload the video to the internet.

As Mitt Romney has recently proven, no place is safe to hide from the public eye! However, just like government policy should keep up with the times, celebs should too and ALWAYS be on their best behavior when out in public.

    I'm sorry but if a person takes pictures of you naked and published them you would have them arrested right? And in a court of law that person would be considered a peeping tom. I have no clue how people do the very same thing to famous people and no one cares. That
    is insanity. If a dude is outside my window and takes pictures of my breasts while I am undressing , never mind put them on a website I would and everyone around me would be in an uproar. Do people think famous people aren't real people or something? it's crazy.

    I thought you actually were going to be nice this time perez, but then you added that very last comment about you should alsways be on their best behavior when out in public just to make your point again about Kate going topless. You will never change.

    But the thing is, Kate wasn't out in public. She was in private property where the nearest public road is almost a mile away. She has every right to expect privacy in that kind of seclusion, just as anybody is expected some privacy when using a public restroom without fear of camera installation hidden anywhere else. It's just all wrong that paps can blatantly broke French privacy law, profit from his vulgar invasion of privacy, get away with it, and no one seem to give a damn about that.

    Agreed! I mean the rest of us do get down time. The famous should have down time and private time as well. I'm pretty sure in the by -aws of the SAG card it doesn't say you give up your right to privacy and having your picture taken 24/7 and posted in mags with lies as captions.

    The thing is though if anyone goes tanning naked/topless OUTSIDE, private property or not there is a chance that someone is gonna get a picture and post it somewhere… for a normal person you'll be creeped out, humiliated, maybe loose your job. And there really isn't much you can do about it. But for a celebrity the media can make big money over it and all celebrities know this so their shock over it is ridiculous. this day and age cameras have incredible telescopic range. If ANYONE wants to sunbathe in the nude that's the risk you take. I have to think about it and I live out in the woods, can I deal with these tan lines or should I tan naked and risk somebody seeing or worse taking a picture…
    but what can I do if they are not on my property?
    My question is were the paps trespassing? Because I would be pissed about that.

    I agree with John that now is probably the hardest time to be a celebrity thanks to the internet. People are all over celebs anymore. I hate celebrities who complain about their pictures being taken while in public, or those ridiculous ones that block their faces because as much as that must be annoying, it is something they signed up for…however, when it comes to private time at home, or even in a vacation home, they deserve to be left alone as much as anyone else.

    This is slightly humorous though, being posted on a celebrity gossip website. If they left the stars alone, there wouldn't be sites like this…

    The obsession with posting intimate photos of individuals (famous or not) on the internet/in the media without their authorization has gotten completely out of control. Please visit our webpage and sign the petition to make this sort of thing (revenge porn) ILLEGAL. Believe it or not, there are NOT yet laws against this sort of thing and victims are suffering in complete silence out of being utterly terrified and ashamed:

    This has gone TOO far, and it's time we take matters into our own hands and put a stop to it.
