Michelle Williams Is Just a Mother Raising Her Child

Celebmama Michelle Williams is just another woman raising a child. But in addition to all the worries that most parents have, the actress is stalked by the paparazzi. In a recent and raw Newsweek interview, the 28-year-old actress expressed her feelings about those behind the lens. She said:

"It burns a fire inside of me, the s––– that I've seen people do to get at me or my daughter," she says. "I won't forget it, and I won't support it. I don't want my daughter growing up feeling spied on or threatened."

After the death of Michelle's former fiancé, actor Heath Ledger, it seems the interest in their now three-year-old has only increased. The article continued:

She can't understand how many more pictures people need of her holding a coffee cup in one hand and Matilda in the other. Williams is especially enraged at female photographers, because she thinks women should be protective of mothers. She tried to give a particularly aggressive paparazzo career advice recently. "I said, 'You're better than this. Look at you! You're young, you're able-bodied, you have a brightness in your eyes. You're above this.' But you know what? She didn't go away."

Williams continued to say that she might quit acting to get her privacy back.

I click on Michelle news because I like to see what she wears, but I get why she would feel this way, especially with a daughter. I don't think photographers should be able to hound children the way they do, trying to goad reactions.

I think she's one that couldn't stop the attention by retiring, too. It's unfortunate, but the whole situation created a huge interest in her daughter, and even if Michelle retired I think she'd still be hounded for years to come. In fact, I think retiring might only increase interest.I also agree that both by posting the paparazzi picture and us looking at them, we are a part of the problem.

The article with the papparazzi picture next to it says it all! We agree with her but at the same time we look at the photos and by doing so are payins the paparazzi.
