Mary-Louise Parker

Trapped by Snappers

11/5/2007 3:42 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Mary-Louise Parker and her two children arrived at JFK over the weekend and were greeted by an out-of-control snapstorm that frightened the bejesus out of her, and the kids.

The "Weeds" star was with son Will and daughter Ash when they got into an elevator, while hyper-aggressive paps went over the line, holding the door open to try to get their shot and frightening the boy -- drawing what sounded like a sharp rebuke from him.

It's the latest instance of photogs getting uncomfortably close to stars' kids; just last week, Jennifer Garner and Liv Tyler had to fend off paps who couldn't keep a reasonable distance.

Sick. TMZ don't act like you aren't a part of it because you are. No wonder paps are being slapped down like the blood sucking bugs they are.

If that's not the pot calling the kettle black I don't know what is. You guys are a bunch of losers.

It should be illegal to take photos of minors for sale to tabloids. I can understand wanting to snap the celebs, but for christs sake leave them alone when they have their kids with them.

I hope this starts a rash of pap-bashing in hollywood. I'd love to hear more celebs going all "brad garrett" on them.

Get-a-clue!!    

I just wonder what kind of damage these flashes are doing to these kid young eyes. It's bad enough when the flash someone in the daylight, it's got to be worse at night.

With all the accidents that have been taking place when the papps are stalking the celebs, I'm waiting to some celeb with a really good lawer start nailing the papps with lawsuits, you know assult, reckless indangerment, etc...

TMZ YOU ARE IDIOTS    

Leave the kids alone! I enjoy a story about someone, but these kids should be left alone period. How would you paps like it if it was your child scared to death.

We don't need the gossip so badly that you have to scare children. Just stop it. It's wrong.

Anybody    

Britney is a pap whore who doesn't want to left alone. So many stars want to live their life without being hounded. I'm pretty they'd be gracious to pose for a fan or sign autographs, but the papparazzi are going out of their way to get the photos, even if there are innocent kids involved. That's crossing the line.

The red carpet is one thing, this is something else entirely. My hope is that more of you paps 'forget' to get out of the way of moving vehicles. This is harassment, and I, for one, would back any legislation severly limiting your exposure to celebs and their families. This has got to stop, before an innocent child is harmed.

Do you see now that something needs to be done about these paps? Scaring people and kids is going way too far...........

If people think it's cool for paps to hound celebs like this, 'cause they're famous and "it's part of the job," do they feel the same way when cops get shot, mined die in a cave in and troops die in the middle east?
Hey, it's all apart of their jobs!

Some people need to get a life and thing about other people...

What bothers me the most about this is Mary Louise covering her child eyes! As if that isnt what is scaring the crap out of the kid! EVERY airport has private area of entry and exit for celebs where paps would never see them. SO every time you see celeb at airport know they chose to go out in front of paps =(
