Kristen Bell is convinced her campaign to boycott tabloids which publish photos of celebrity children is working, because she is no longer having to hide from the paparazzi while she’s out and about.
The star teamed up with her husband Dax Shepard for the No Kids Policy earlier this year and vowed to shun publications which buy and print snaps of celebrity families without parental permission.
Bell, who gave birth to her first child, daughter Lincoln, last year managed to convince editors at a slew of top magazines to curb their use of such pictures and she admits her efforts – and those of fellow famous moms Halle Berry and Jennifer Garner – have really had a great impact on her life.
She tells the Associated Press, “I feel a lot safer because I’m not followed at all now. It makes me feel like we all rallied and did something – the good people that were on the side of responsible parenting and passionate about child welfare spoke up and made a difference, and that is a really invigorating feeling.”
And Bell insists the public support for the campaign proves that everyone understands where the celebrity parents’ plight.
She adds, “The response has been so overwhelming that it’s really almost a moral stance that the consumer demanded their publications take. We’re all consuming healthier media now.”
Hollywood moms Berry and Garner joined forces to fight for new legislation to protect the kids of stars. Their successful campaign led to new California laws that restrict what photographers can do around children and how close they can get.
