If you are someone as famous as George Clooney, it is no surprise that the paparazzi will go ballistic to take your pictures. However, taking pictures of celebrities’ kids has always been an issue. Recently, Clooney wrote an open letter to media outlets to stop sharing pictures of his twins. According to him, he is worried about their privacy and their lives. This is not the first time that he has issued such a request. Previously, he slammed a French magazine for publishing pictures of his twins without their consent.

When George Clooney met Amal Alamuddin, he did not waste any time and proposed her

In 2013, they met in Lake Como and went on their first date in London. According to George Clooney, they talked to each other constantly while they were away for work. Shortly after they met, Clooney had decided that he will marry the human rights lawyer. Therefore, he proposed the question in 2014. While talking about the proposal, George Clooney said:

“We never talked about marriage when we were dating, and I asked her out of the blue. It took her a long time to say yes. I was on my knee for, like, 20 minutes. I finally said, ‘Look, I’m gonna throw my hip out.’ We told that story to her parents, and they’re like, ‘There’s something wrong with his hip?’”

The couple got married in Venice in September 2014. Initially, Amal and George Clooney had no plans on starting a family. However, they surprised everyone when they welcomed their twins, Alexander and Ella, in 2017.

From the beginning, the actor has been notorious about his children’s privacy

After the birth of his twins, George Clooney wanted to take serious measures for their privacy. However, a French magazine, Voici, managed to take pictures of the newborns and published them. In response to this, Clooney issued a statement and said:

“Over the last week photographers from Voici magazine scaled our fence, climbed our tree and illegally took pictures of our infants inside our home. Make no mistake—the photographers, the agency and the magazine will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. The safety of our children demands it.”

However, Voici claimed that they took the pictures because of public demand.

This year, Amal and George Clooney’s twins turned 4. However, the parents are still adamant to keep their identities private. Therefore, George Clooney addressed the media outlets like Daily Mail in an open letter. He said:

“I am a public figure and accept the oftentimes intrusive photos as part of the price to pay for doing my job. Our children have made no such commitment. The nature of Amal’s work as a human rights lawyer has her confronting and putting on trial terrorist groups and we take as much precaution as we can to keep our family safe. But we cannot protect our children if any publication puts their faces on their cover.”

According to him, seeing Billie Lourd’s 1 year old’s picture in Daily Mail prompted him to write the letter. Furthermore, George Clooney said:

“We have never sold a picture of our kids, we are not on social media and never post pictures because to do so would put their lives in jeopardy. Not paranoid jeopardy but real-world issues, with real-world consequences. We hope that you would agree that the need to sell advertisement isn’t greater than the need to keep innocent children from being targeted.”

While the media outlets might not stop from publishing pictures of celebrity kids, George Clooney has made a valid point. He is not the only one advocating for this. Recently, Blake Lively and Gigi Hadid came forward with a similar request.
