Ashton Kutcher is not happy about photos taken of himself, wife Mila Kunis and their two children, which wound up being published by various online media outlets on Monday (full disclosure: ET Canada had the opportunity to publish the photos online, but declined to do so).
To make his displeasure know, the former “Two and a Half Men” star took to Twitter to call out the paparazzo who took the photos and the outlets that ran them.
“I continue to kindly ask, please don’t post/publish photos of our kids,” he tweeted on Monday. “They haven’t chosen life in the public eye.”
He continued in a followup tweet: “Yes we took them to a public place (we like sharing life with our kids) no that doesn’t mean we are ok with their photos being published.”
Kutcher and Kunis are among the growing number of celebrities who are taking a stand when it comes to paparazzi photos of their children, joining the ranks of such stars as Anna Paquin and Kristen Bell in slamming entertainment news outlets that publish photos of their children.
Bell, in fact, decided to take things even further by refusing to speak with any media outlet that publishes unauthorized photos of celebrities’ children. Back in 2014, Bell tweeted that she “won’t do interviews 4 entities that pay photogs to take pics of my baby anymore. I care more about my integrity & my values than my career.”
However, the star of “The Good Place” offered kudos to ET Canada, tweeting: “U guys @ETCanada already has a #nokidspolicy in place!! I’m so impressed.”
