Halle Berry Paparazzi Bill Passes California State Legislature

by at .  Updated at . Comments

It's not something you and I have to worry about, but for celebrities, the mundane tasks of going to the grocery store and pumping gas often turn into spectacles with swarming paparazzi.

Thankfully, that is soon to be somewhat quelled thanks in part to Halle Berry and Jennifer Garner's testimony in front of the California Legislature as to just how detrimental this is to their lives.

Check out the story below:

Their basic point? They chose a public life, but their children did not, and are often traumatized or endangered by the actions of reckless members of the paparazzi.

The bill, which redefines harassment laws in California so that photographers that harass children will be subject to fines and/or jail time, passed the Legislature.

It will now head to the Appropriations Committee.
