If you're a famous celebrity, it probably isn't going to take long before you start getting fed up with the paparazzi. There have been countless incidents over the years of the paparazzi seeing the line that they shouldn't cross and then jump 15 yards over it. As you'll see from this list, in the case of Alec Baldwin, the cost of doing that was getting pinned up against a car.
Sure, you might love some of the steamy photos that the paparazzi get, but it'll be hard not to sympathize with the celebrities on this list. Especially when some such as Ariel Winter have been incredibly outspoken about how furious she is with being followed everywhere. For Cara Delevingne even trying to escape the paparazzi by entering a church wasn't enough.
Many of these celebrities also had no intentions of showing you their birthday suit, but as you'll see, being famous takes away that luxury of any sense of privacy. Speaking of birthdays, you better believe that if you're going to decide to not know your limit as a celebrity that those photos are also going to be etched online forever.
These are the 15 photos that explain why celebrities hate the paparazzi.
15 When Kutcher Was Accused Of Cheating (With His Cousin!)
Ashton Kutcher has every right to be a bit cautious with the paparazzi. It was due in part to their photographs of him cheating on Demi Moore with Sara Leal that led to their divorce. Though he's now with Mila Kunis so things definitely didn't end too poorly for him!
Though the people at Star magazine may have thought they had another scoop on their hand when they photographed Kutcher hanging out with an unnamed female.
Kutcher was quick to throw shade at the magazine however, taking to Twitter to say "You should have heard how upset Mila was that I spent the day with our cousin. Sorry aunt Jodie these magazines lack integrity."
14 When They Capture You In An Altered State
You wouldn't be alone if there are some photos of yourself that you would probably rather get deleted. Many of those photos may be of you in a state of mind that might not exactly be sober. But while you can keep those photos to yourself, you better believe celebrities have to know that when they get drunk that the cameras are going to be out.
Call us crazy, but knowing that you're going to get hounded the second you leave the club is probably a pretty good way to ruin at least part of your night. Or at least make the hangover the next morning when you see the photos all the worse.
With Halloween around the corner, we're sure plenty of celebrities are going to be hoping their partying ways doesn't get captured.
13 When They Purposely Went Upskirt On Natalie Morales
Part of being a movie star means knowing that you're going to be attending plenty of red carpet events. For Natalie Morales, her most recent film Battle of the Sexes also meant getting to hit up the carpet wearing the stunning dress that you're staring at.
But Morales had some serious beef with the paparazzi that were at the event and got seriously creepy with their photo angles. Taking to Twitter, Morales stated
"So someone sent me photos of me having what they called a 'wardrobe malfunction' at last weekend's premiere of Battle of the Sexes which was one of the happiest moments of my life thus far. These are pictures they PURPOSELY took up my skirt TO GET A SHOT of my vag"
12 When They Photographed Kate Middleton In A Vulnerable State
Kate Middleton was relaxing at the Chateau D'Autet when she elected to do some sunbathing without her top on. And while she may have thought she was alone, it became apparent that she was not after a French paparazzi member took photos of her. The incident led to Middleton going after the publication and getting the photos banned.
It was a horrible invasion of her privacy, something we're sure you agree with. Though you may be interested that Donald Trump thought it was her fault,
"Kate Middleton is great - but she shouldn't be sunbathing in the nude - only herself to blame. Who wouldn't take Kate's picture and make lots of money if she does the nude sunbathing thing. Come on Kate!"
11 When Watson's 18th Birthday Wardrobe Malfunction Went Viral
Emma Watson has spent her entire life in the public spotlight. So naturally, when she was heading out to celebrate her 18th birthday, the world was going to take notice. But what makes this situation go over the top, was the fact that Watson suffered a wardrobe malfunction during the night - a photo which the paparazzi then ran with.
The fact that she had literally just turned of legal age and the over-sexualization was already being ramped up was something that many people felt very uncomfortable with.
Watson probably also wasn't a fan when leaked photos of her started emerging online, a trend you may be able to blame on our celebrity-obsessed culture.
10 When They Obsess Over Ariel Winter's Wardrobe
Ariel Winter is one of the most talked about celebrities in 2017. It definitely doesn't hurt her case that she often takes to Instagram to post photos of her wearing outfits that highlight her body.
But Winter also has no shortage of haters, not to mention beef with the paparazzi. Earlier this year she came under fire after her shorts "ate her as*" and was captured by the paparazzi. They were also on hand when she attended her first day of class, where she also wore jean shorts.
Winter ranted about paparazzi on September 18th saying,
"I am not trying to be pap'd everywhere I go, I am literally just LIVING and unfortunately, I can't do that without paparazzi following me around every day. I'm not trying to show you my ass in shorts when I go to the grocery store."
9 When Bloom And Perry Were Photo'd Enjoying Some Clothes Optional Paddleboarding
One of the most annoying parts of the paparazzi may be the fact that they are constantly impeding on your personal relationships. Such was the case for the former lovers Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry who elected to go for some paddleboarding wearing little to no clothing.
The two were probably just hoping to have a great time, but instead, the internet exploded when pictures of the two emerged. When discussing the matter, Bloom admitted that he would never have exposed himself if he had thought that there wasn't paparazzi around. As well as that he learned the lesson that he's never truly alone.
That's a heck of an expensive lesson to pay for being famous.
8 When They Celebrate Leaked Photos
One of the most horrifying things that a celebrity can suffer is having leaked photos of their private life emerging online. While many publications will shy away from publishing the photos, that's definitely not the case for all of them.
Among the prominent names that have had photos revealed of them in their birthday suit are: Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton, Kaley Cuoco, Scarlett Johansson and Mila Kunis. Some, such as Rihanna and Vanessa Hudgens have also had photos leaked on several different occasions.
Many of these celebrities listed are happy showing off their body in revealing clothing, they just want to do it by their own choosing.
7 When Alec Baldwin Pinned One To A Car
There are a few moments in Alec Baldwin's life where he has given off the impression that he has a bit of a temper. One of the most extreme examples came in 2013 when he got into a serious scuffle with an invasive member of the paparazzi.
The photos and video that include Baldwin pinning him to a car are definitely not the best look. The incident escalated in part because it was one of Baldwin's first public outings with wife Hilaria after she gave birth to their daughter.
Baldwin has also gotten into a scuffle with a Daily News reporter.
6 When They Hid In The Bushes To Photo Margot Robbie
Margot Robbie definitely made waves back in 2016 when photos emerged of her taking a wipeout while on a surfboard. She was just trying to enjoy time on the beach with her partner Tom Ackerley and definitely had no intentions of having her photo be taken.
Robbie shared one of the photos to Instagram along with the caption
"Photo cred to the creepy pap hiding in the bushes. Thanks for always catching me at my best angles."
The fact that Robbie didn't know the paparazzi was there must make her question if she is ever able to feel completely safe when in public.
5 When They Hounded Britney And Her Baby
It's one thing for celebrities to get hounded by the paparazzi. But it becomes even worse when the celebrity's child is involved in the hysteria. Such was the case back in 2006 when Britney was one of the most popular stars in the world.
The above photo of her speeding away from angry paparazzi quickly went viral as people questioned her parenting skills. When talking about the photo, Spears said
"I was terrified that this time the physically aggressive paparazzi would put both me and my baby in danger. I instinctively took measures to get my baby and me out of harm’s way, but the paparazzi continued to stalk us."
While Spears definitely shouldn't have taken off with the baby in an unsafe position, they definitely went too far here.
4 When They Caused The Death Of Princess Diana
There are plenty of moments on this list where the paparazzi went too far and violated the privacy of the celebrities involved. But for Princess Diana, it was the aggressive paparazzi that unfortunately led to her early demise.
Diana was in the car that crashed after it attempted to escape the paparazzi that were hounding her. 9 different members of the paparazzi were charged with manslaughter for their role in the cause, but the charges were eventually dropped in 2002.
It would have been great if this incident had decreased the obsession with celebrity culture, but it is perhaps never more rampant in society than in 2017.
3 When Paparazzi Climbed A Tree To Photograph Clooney's Twins
George Clooney and his wife Amal were thrilled to let the world know that they were parents to twins, Ella and Alexander. What they were not thrilled with, was when paparazzi absolutely crossed the line in their attempts to get photos of the babies.
"Over the last week photographers from Voici magazine scaled our fence, climbed our tree and illegally took pictures of our infants inside our home. Make no mistake the photographers, the agency and the magazine will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. The safety of our children demands it.”
Let's hope this starts a precedent of paparazzi settling down in regards to how extreme they go for photos like this.
2 When They Forced Miley Cyrus To Consider Moving
There are many advantages that come with living in Los Angeles. Especially if you're a celebrity and have the bankroll to support some of the most high-end luxuries the city has to offer.
But that also means you need to deal with the paparazzi. Cyrus was infuriated with some members of the press back in 2012, taking to Twitter to say
"Highly considering moving back to Nashville. I can't stand these D Bag paparazzi anymore. Couldn't even take my dog on a walk today."
The fact that there are countless photos of Cyrus doing just that thing since is definitely proof that they haven't even kind of slowed down.
1 When They Followed Cara Delevingne Into A Church
With her background as a professional model, Cara Delevingne is definitely familiar with getting her photo taken. And now as she moves into the world of movies, she is definitely starting to get more familiar (albeit infuriated) with the pesky paparazzi. Such was the case when she was visiting a church while filming a movie in Italy
Delevingne sounded off on Instagram back in 2013 saying
"Paparazzi in church...A whole new level of low."
We're sure you would agree with her. Let's hope that the people who were involved with the church were able to swoop in and make sure the paparazzi left. Especially because we're sure the other people at the church were probably none too thrilled with having their worship interrupted.
