Halle Berry has loaned her star power to getting laws changed to protect her child and the children of other Hollywood celebs. The actress has helped to push forth legislation that will limit the paparazzi’s ability to take pictures of the children of Hollywood stars.
The new law, called Bill 606, as pushed by Berry, who testified before the state assembly. She says that she wants to protect children with the initiative.
The law pushes out penalties against organizations that take pictures of a child without parental content or in a harassing manner.
Berry says that the law would be “the beginning of the end for aggressive paparazzi”.
The bill was signed into law this week.
“I started this fight with a great deal of hope and a bit of uncertainty so I cannot express my immense gratitude that Gov. (Jerry) Brown has recognized, and acted to remedy, the plight of children who are tormented because of the identity or prominence of their parents,” said Berry.
Those who violate the new law could receive 10 days to one year in jail and a $10,000 fine.
