Anna Paquin is furious with a British news outlet for publishing photos of her children, taking the Daily Mail to task for a recent story that featured photos of herself, husband Steven Moyer and their young twins.
While the story seemed innocent enough, the children’s faces weren’t blurred out; many photo agencies and celebrity-focused publications have agreed not to use pics of stars’ children.
And while the Daily Mail has blurred out the faces of celebrity offspring in the past, this was not the case this time — which the former “True Blood” star pointed out in a pair of terse tweets.
It wasn’t just the Mail that raised her ire, but also some of the mean-spirited comments that readers made about the story, some criticizing her appearance, and she called out the “#bodyshamers.”
This isn’t the first time that Paquin has become upset over paparazzi photos of her kids. Last year, she slammed photographers for taking photos of a 4th of July family outing.
“My dear and loyal twitter followers,” she wrote in a tweet, “if you see pics [of] my kids please don’t post/tweet/give any oxygen to the creeps that take them #mamabear.”
Many entertainment news outlets have embraced the Kristen Bell-led “No Kids” policy by refusing to publish photos of celebrities’ children — including ET Canada, which holds a special place in her heart.
“So I hope your fans know that ET Canada actually already had it in place and was actually the very first outlet I heard from,” said Bell in a 2014 interview with ET Canada’s Erin Cebula.
