Alba to Pap: Don't Be an A-Hole!

12/20/2007 8:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The always paparazzi-friendly (ha!) Jessica Alba got royally pissed when one photog got a bit too close on Rodeo Drive yesterday.


TMZ caught the pregnant-yet-dour starlet getting her shop on, ignoring paps as they tried to snap pics of her growing belly. One photog got real close though and attempted to get an unflattering shot from below -- prompting Jessica to cuss him out!

Sorry, but stars do almost anything to become famous, and then when they achieve do, they act like they are made of gold. She asked for this, and she and others like her only make the situation worse by acting completely ridiculous and childish. WHY can't she just stand there, be gracious, and give them a few photos?! What IS the big deal!? She made her bed and now she doesn't want to lay in it. I have no sympathy at all for temper-tantrum throwing stars.

There are common citizens who suddenly get media attention for something as simple as helping another person in distress. That is (hopefully) an action most of us would take in a dire situation. The media starts hounding these people 'looking for a story to print' and Joe Nobody soon feels overwhelmed because he can no longer walk out his front door to go to the grocery store, doctors office, etc. If Joe Nobody has kids, they become targets also. How fair is it really to have your privacy TOTALLY invaded by photographers willing to camp out on your doorstep for days on end, hoping to get the 'scoop' on the 'real' Joe Nobody. All of this hype just because Joe Nobody did something noteworthy. 'Celebrities' are mostly people who chose acting as a career. That's really no different than choosing to be a teacher, or a doctor. It's a career choice. Should you lose your right to privacy (and dignity) just because you chose the profession you work in. That is ridiculous. Very few of the actors in Hollywood call up the papz every time they walk out the door. They are sought out and harrassed - constantly. You people who lump all actors together and think they 'get what they deserve' just because they chose to be actors - are obviously quite ignorant. How would you like to be followed around every day, telephoned at ungodly hours, prevented from living a fairly ordinary life, every single day - just because you are a secretary, brick layer, sales person, homemaker, etc. This paparazzi crap is CRAP! The papz idiots need to be limited in their ability to interfere with other individuals regardless of who they are, or how much money they make. They do not have the right to tresspass on private property, block traffic, interfere with the safety of other persons, etc. just because they are trying to make a living. That is ridiculous thinking if you believe it's their right under the US constitution. Every one of us is given the right to our personal liberty (freedom), and the right to protect our person (self) and our property under the US Constitution. Why should the papz have more rights than the individual citizens that make up the US. Rethink your tolerance of these privacy and space, and property violators. You could be their target on any given day also. Do you really think you would enjoy all the attention and the hype, non-stop. And, have no recourse to put a stop to it.

Really, it is disgusting the way you, TMZ and other paparazzi hound these celebs. Her cursing was mild compared to what I'd be doing. How do you look at yourselves in the mirror or sleep at night? And, what the hell do you tell your children you do for a living? Just awful. This will be the LAST time I'm clicking on any TMZ links when I'm surfing the web. I wish everyone would boycott this type of voyerism.

I agree these celebs should be left alone...BUT when you are a celeb and YOU GO to those famous restaurants where all the paps hang out and you take a stroll down Rodao drive OBVIOUSLY they are going to be there along with people on vacation wanting your picture. I personally dont care about celebs, the few times i have seen 1 I smile and say hi and am on my way. Basically if you want to be left alone and dont want all the aggrivation......Live in Valentine Nebraska NOT LA or Bev Hills.

Some of you complained about the fame and fortune that comes with being a celebrity and that if they don't like it, they should get out. If it weren't for celebrities, there would be no movies, TV, music, or anything else we spend hundreds of dollars on to entertain ourselves. Then you would bitch because you were bored. Either shut up and let them entertain us or go live in a convent. As for the paparazzi, they do go too far and there should be laws passed that says they can come no closer than 200 feet of any persons they plan to photograph without written permission.

She's probably just pissed off that she's not allowed to smoke anymore because she's pregnant.

What was she thinking? Going on Rodeo Drive the Saturday before Christmas and not expecting to get attention? That must be exactly what she wanted. Or she is stupid. I am so disappointed in her - I thought she might be one of the different ones.

Those photographers are WAY out of line as we all know...there needs to be a law passed to keep them several feet away...say 100 feet would be good I guess for a start...other wise they'll end up jailed or heavly fined...or giving the victom the right to sue!!!

my two cents    

She's pregnant and doesn't need to be stressed out by these jerks.

Well, what do the paparazzi freakin' expect?! The woman is in her first, possibly into her second, trimester; it's a VERY hormonal time for any woman, especially a star who gets stalked just taking her trash out, or food shopping! The photogs deserve whatever expletives she can throw at them and THEN SOME! Now she is expecting, they'll hound her relentlessly. These stars know what they "signed up for" but COME ON! Everyone deserves basic human respect and dignity, especially when pregnant.

I just find it absolutly RUDE of a lot of people thinking that JUST BECAUSE A PERSON IS FAMOUS it gives people the RIGHT to know every thing about their life. How would they like to be hounded like that?? This must stop people, you all (and you know who you are) need to get a life and leave the celeb's. alone, then the pap's. will find some other way to be RUDE and OBNOXIOUS and totaly uncarring of peoples feelings....AND then they have the NERVE to be upset if they are yelled at or hit...me I'd run them over and back up to make sure I did the job right in the first place.
