George Clooney asks tabloids to stop posting photos of twins

George Clooney doesn’t believe in “sharing” pictures of his twins. Not because he is not a proud father, but because he really cares about the physical safety of his family.

On Thursday, the internationally acclaimed star made a strong appeal to protect four-year-old Ella and Alexandra, whom he shares with international law and human rights lawyer Amal Clooney. In an open letter received by The Times, the Midnight Sky star and director asked the Daily Mail and others to “refrain from using our children’s faces” in their publications.

He wrote that his order was taken after the Daily Mail published photographs of actress Billy Lourd Kingston’s one-year-old son, great-grandson of late Hollywood legend Debbie Reynolds and grandson of late Star Wars veteran Carrie Fisher. Since then, the publication has blurred the child’s face in several images.

“I am a public figure and I take often annoying photographs as part of my pay for my work,” Clooney, 60, wrote in a letter. “Our children did not undertake such obligations.”

The two-time Oscar winner, whose children have appeared in paparazzi photos in the Daily Mail, also explained how advertising for children can be dangerous to them and their families due to Amal’s occupation.

“The nature of my wife’s job is to confront and prosecute terrorist groups, and we are taking all possible precautions to keep our family safe. We will not be able to protect our children if some publication puts their faces on the cover, ”he wrote. “We have never sold pictures of our children, we are not on social networks and we never post pictures because it would put their lives at risk. Not paranoid danger, but real-world problems with real-world consequences. “

Clooney said he hoped they would agree that “the need to sell advertising is no more than the need to keep innocent children from harassment.”

The movie star isn’t the only celebrity making this request. The late Michael Jackson made his young children wear elaborate face masks when they were in public. Celebrity couple Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard called for boycotting photos of celebrity children back in 2014 and regularly covered up the faces of their children and other children in social media posts.

More recently, Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively have also taken this action: a Gossip Girl alum last month approached a paparazzi Instagram account for posting, without her consent, images of them walking with their three daughters.

“This is so disturbing,” Lively wrote in the comments to the deleted post, according to USA Today. “I personally shared with you that these people are persecuting and persecuting my children – and you are still writing. You said you’d stop; you promised me personally.

“This is not an accidental assessment: you are also exploiting very young children. Please delete, please. “

Open letter to the Daily Mail from George Clooney.

Open letter to the Daily Mail and other publications.

After you have just seen the photographs of one year old Billy Lourdes in your post, and the fact that you subsequently took those photographs, we ask that you refrain from posting the faces of our children in your post. I am a public figure and I take often annoying photographs as part of my pay for my work. Our children did not undertake such obligations.

The nature of my wife’s job is to confront and prosecute terrorist groups, and we take every precaution to keep our family safe. We cannot protect our children if some publication puts their faces on the cover. We have never sold pictures of our children, we are not on social media, and we never post pictures because it would put their lives at risk. Not paranoid danger, but real-world problems with real-world consequences.

We hope you will agree that the need to sell advertising is no more than the need to keep innocent children from harassment.

thanks
George Clooney
