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.
