In an interview with Dr. Oz on Wednesday, Jennifer Garner didn't hold back when discussing the harmful effect the constant presence of the paparazzi has had on her children, especially 4-year-old Samuel. "Of all my kids, he hates them the most," she said. "He hates them." This isn't the first time the Miracles From Heaven actress has spoken out about how invasive photographers can be when it comes to her children, either. Along with fellow famous mom Halle Berry, Jennifer testified at a hearing before the California State Assembly Committee on Public Safety in 2013 to lobby for stricter rules to protect her kids from photographers.
Although the legislation hasn't completely eliminated them from the lives of her children, Violet, 10, Seraphina, 7, and Samuel, she noted that it's certainly helped and revealed the way she tries to comfort her son about it. "We just have to live our lives, son, and do the best we can," she said. "And you know what? That is just something he's gonna have to grow up with, because if we move to Timbuktu, some fool in Timbuktu's gonna buy a camera and follow us around, if they can make a living off of it."
