Meryl Streep Talks Smack About Baby Photo Sales

meryl streepWith 4 high profile celebs recently cashing in on their newborn photos it was just a matter of time before someone spoke publicly against it just for the attention.

Meryl Streep was the one to get some attention for speaking against it. In a recent interview Streep said that whether it is for personal gain or charity, nothing would compare to maintaining kid’s privacy and parents should never do so.

Streep told Contactmusic, “One thing I learned very early on is when you are famous, you lose your right to privacy. And, if you promote your children, if you have them photographed, then they lose their rights.”

On ‘living’ with the paparazzi, Streep said, “They can follow me, take a picture, whatever they want to do. But my kids, no.”

Jamie Lynn Spears along with Brangelina, Jessica Alba and Matthew McConaughey have recently sold the exclusivity to their newborn first photos for a total of over $17 million. Do you think this is a wrong thing to do?

    I don’t see any wrong or right about it. Once you’re a celebrity, you along with your kids pretty much has no privacy.

    “They can follow me, take a picture, whatever they want to do. But my kids, no.” Like that is going to work. Paparazzi’s are going to keep following them til they get something. And even when they do, they’ll still want more.
