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.

Please stop. You are terrifying these children. STOP! Nobody is ASKING to see Mary Louise Parker's child, and even if they were, it's immoral to stalk her with her children. Leave them alone!

She was going to rely on a COP = nice, since she has the liberal-screw any authority attitude. Why should a cop help her when you just KNOW she's the type to spit on them.

Izzy - you've got the right idea. LOL And a little pepper spray should help as well. Give the paps one warning, then burn their lovely, little eyes.

Doesn't seem like she was attentioned starved to me...Seems like a mom getting off an airplane and protecting her young child from a bunch of overzealous photogs who don't know BOUNDARIES...This kind of stuff is SCARY to children...Anyone with a small child that they'd like to subject them to this kind of terrifying situation? Any time some stranger in the grocery store even comes within 5 feet of my son, he starts to freak out...Then add flashing bulbs and aggressive strange people---yeah, really considerate, respectful and professional...I think the paparazzi need to really reevaluate the way they conduct business, especially with young children involved....I also think they need to apologize for their behavior more often...Also, if you're getting your foot run over by these people's cars---your standing too close!!!

It's time the Paps get regulated. If you're going to assault people like this, and not get arrested, you need to have a LICENSE. Like press credentials. Get with the program NY and Cali! Make it mandatory for paps to have a license, or they get arrested for assault. Enough is enough.

Holy cow!

You paps (including TMZ) have crossed all boundaries of decency!

I hope one (or all of them) sue your collective asses.

That was absolutely uncalled for and disgusting.

"Snapper" for dinner!

I want to know why you "journalists"(i use the term loosely) feel the need to photograph actors in private moments with their children??! As much as I love Mary-
louise Parker (she's a wonderful person) I don't want to see her coming and going from an airport (something we all do) being harrassed like this with her children exposed to not only their mothers' fear and panic but also the rudeness and aggressiveness of the photographers. The kids don't comprehend this behavior yet and it's a shame that mom & dad have to explain this to them at such an early stage in their lives. MLP should not have had to cover her childrens' faces like that, it's just so wrong guys, please give respect to at least the kids, is that too much to ask?!
