Right/Wrong Way To Deal With Paparazzi

6/15/2006 2:38 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sarah Jessica Parker has become the latest celebrity to exchange words with the hounding paparazzi -- but this time, the pleas of a celebrity actually worked.

While walking with her son, James Wilkie, in New York on Tuesday, Parker, frankly yet politely, asked the surrounding photogs, "Could you please not take pictures of me and my child?" Remarkably, Parker's request was granted and the paparazzi, heads down, quietly walked away.

While SJP demonstrated a reserved way of getting the paparazzi to leave her alone, other celebs have chosen to use the more volatile Sean Penn method.

Wednesday photographer Anthony Goodrich filed a police report alleging that Bruce Willis assaulted him by smashing his camera into his face while the star entered West Hollywood restaurant Koi. A spokesman for Willis denied the allegations, saying that at no time did Willis "hit, push or hurt" a photographer.

In April, Jude Law chose to flex his Hollywood muscle on an intrusive photographer, when he caught the cameraman filming him, his ex-wife Sadie Frost and their three kids in LA. Law bitch-slapped the photographer's camera before lashing out: "You don't film my f***ing children!"

Even shutterbug queen Lindsay Lohan has a breaking point. Earlier this week, the teen sensation screamed at photogs when they wouldn't stop snapping pics of her and her friends through the glass window of a NY restaurant.

With paparazzi being part of the Hollywood game, other publicity-prone celebs - knowing which side their bread is buttered - have actually chosen to embrace the photographers.

In May, everyone's favorite "Ghost Whisperer" Jennifer Love Hewitt came to the aid of a fallen photographer by asking for a hug before remarking "You have to be careful."

Tuesday night, Girls Gone Wild creator Joe Francis showed up to Hollywood hotspot Hyde bearing hats for all the waiting paparazzi. Probably not the worst way to get on their good side.

Even Paris Hilton - who could single-handedly employ a nation of paparazzi - kept a calm and cool composure signing autographs as fans (young and old alike) and photographers swarned her SUV in New York on Tuesday.

While it's clear that handling the paparazzi can be a stressful situation, it doesn't take a brainiac - or even a Hilton - to know violence is never the answer.

You've gotta be kidding. Who gives these people the right to stalk them with cameras during their private moments with their families and post online??? You think it's right that Brad and Angelina should have to drape their home in fabric to give them privacy from prying and snoopy photographers?? That a celebrity can't enjoy a latte with a girlfriend or shop in peace ... that the contents of their shopping bags are listed and posted online ?? It's nutz. Our obsession with celebrity is SICK. Anyone who finds that kind of stuff interesting needs to get a life instead of watching someone else live theirs!!! GET YOUR OWN LIFE!!!!

At least Ms. Parker has reserve. Others that run up on phtographers and act like they can push, spit, scream, slap, etc., these photogs that are doing their job is just ridiculous. You asked for this busihess and you have to take the good, the bad, the bitter, and the sweet. BUT, I do agree that when it comes to taking pics of a celebrity's child, that is definitely crossing the line. The child didn't ask for this life, the parent did, and photogs should remember and respect that.

Note to La Lohan....... You get more flies with sugar than you do with vinager. SJP knows her way around the "photogo beast" and that is why she is respected like she is. She's more willing to give someone a photo op if they ask her first.... SJP is someone that little girls can look up too (unlike Lindsay, Britney, and even Jessica)......Sorry.. the truth does hurt

Yep,# 4 said it all.If you don't like what is being said here then go away. yeah,I think the paparazzi can take things a little too far sometimes but we would'nt be on this web site if they did'nt do their job now would we.Maybe there should be a law that they can only come within so many feet of them.Celebs should'nt have to trip over them getting into their car or something but when your out in public then your just fair game to have your picture taken.

I am not even a fan of Britany's, but for Godsake leave her alone. If all the scum bag ppl would stop buying paprazzi trash, then the stars can live a private life. Even tho they chose to achieve stardom doesn't negate them from having a private life. When will it stop? Another Princess Diana? I believe thats what it will take, a life, to make the photogs stop. Yes it is a free country and they are doing their jobs. But where has The Golden Rule gone? Lets put ourselves in a stars place, and see if we like being stalked all day and night. That what it is STALKING! We are all human beings, please paparzzi remember next time you stalk someone.

If they didn't want to be followed by the paparazzi in the first place, they should have never gotten their stupid faces on the t.v. Am I right?
