Josh Duhamel on Paparazzi No Kids Policy: “We Knew What We Were Getting Into” (VIDEO)
Josh Duhamel discussed his position on the No Kids Policy concerning paparazzi pictures on HuffPost Live on Friday.
The actor revealed his nuanced take on the effort to stop outlets from using photos of celebrities’s children, admitting that he and wife Fergie are “not quite as aggressive about it, as long as they’re respectful and keep their distance.”
Duhamel isn’t without concerns about the paparazzi, however. He explains, “I don’t want them to terrify my kid by any means, and I don’t want it to affect the way he sees the world, [but] I don’t want to start any kind of beef with [paparazzi] either, because they could be pretty voracious when they need to be.”
The actor discussed his support for friends Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard, who introduced the movement, but he suggests that “they’ve had experiences that are different than what we’ve had.”
Ultimately, says Duhamel, “We knew what we were getting into when we had our little one and it was, ‘Yes, he didn’t ask for it,’ but it’s best that he sort of adapts to it and understands it. It’s up to us to make him understand what it is and try to make his upbringing as normal as possible, in spite of all of that.”
