Angelina Jolie wants law for paparazzi

London: Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie wants a law to protect celebrities and their families from unscrupulous photographers.

The 35-year-old star has six children with her partner Brad Pitt and the famous family is a regular target for the paparazzi, reports a website.

Jolie admits some snappers scare the youngsters by getting too close, and although she doesn`t want to stop the photographers doing their job, she wishes a law was in place to force them to keep their distance and use long lenses to avoid unnerving the children.

"I do think and I do hope that there will at some point be laws about how close they can get to children with cameras. Because I think at some point it`s going to be clearer that it`s emotionally not healthy. And with long lenses, there`s no need," she said.

"You know I`m somebody that I would like there to be a law about the distance they have to children. So I think we work for things like that. Something simple and practical," she added.
