Meryl Streep is sounding off on stars who sell the rights to their baby’s photos. She says she’s “appalled whenever she hears about a star bargaining for media cash over baby photos – even if the cash is for charity.”
She believes that when you’re a star you “lose your right to privacy” and “if you promote your children, then they lose their rights.”
Uh… Meryl? Here’s the thing: Many of these stars AREN’T promoting their children. They’re just trying to live. But whenever they walk out of their house their kid gets a price on its head by paparazzi that try and snap a shot of it. So their trying to avoid this by just selling the rights. Having a photog come to their house, snap some shots, and take the paparazzi out of the game.
I have a lot of respect for Meryl’s acting, but I’m not so sure she truly understands how Hollywood has changed since she had her own kids.
