What a great belated Christmas present for you, Jen! You’re finally getting the personal space you’ve always wanted come 2010.
Jennifer Aniston, 40, is one of the most famous women in the world, so it’s no wonder that she’s constantly courted by the paparazzi. But Jen, sick and tired of having cameras in her face, decided to take action and brought her case to Assembly Speaker Karen Bass.
Under the new law, if Jen finds out that a photo agency is trying to sell (or a media outlet is trying to buy) pictures or video that violated privacy laws, she’ll be able to file a civil lawsuit.
“It’s become a public safety issue,” Jen told the L.A. Times via WonderWall Dec. 30. “Somebody’s going to die if we don’t do something. There have to be some boundaries,” she added. “When you have children in the car and the photographers are rushing you, it’s just absolutely out of control.”
Her terrifying accounts of snappers running red lights and blocking her car so they could get their money shots helped secure Assembly Bill 524, that will crack down on Peeping Toms and prying lenses starting Jan. 1, 2010.
Way to get your Christmas wish, Jen!
