Ben Affleck just told the paparazzi to Argo f*ck themselves!
The new Batman made it clear in a recent interview with Playboy magazine that he's got one thing on his mind: the safety of
Gotham City his kids. And for him, that means putting the paparazzi in their place.
"You can yell at me with a video camera and be TMZ. You can follow me around and take pictures all you want. I don’t care. There are a couple of guys outside right now. Terrific. That’s part of the deal. But it’s wrong and disgusting to follow children around and take their picture and sell it for money. It makes the kids less safe. They used to take pictures of our children coming out of preschool, and so this stalker who had threatened to kill me, my wife and our kids showed up at the school and got arrested. I mean, there are real practical dangers to this.”
Whoa, that is super scary! We're glad that everyone in Ben's family was okay after that terrifying incident!
Likewise, we're so stoked that his wifey Jennifer Garner was part of the successful effort to pass California's Senate Bill 606 into a law!
Starting January 1st, photographers who are found to be harassing minors who are singled out due to their parent's profession, could spend up to a year behind bars and could pay fines upwards of $30K under the new law!
We hope this keeps the shutterbugs away in the new year!
