Halle Berry on Paparazzi Blowup: 'When It Comes to My Daughter, I'm Ferocious!'
“Extra's” Mario Lopez caught up with Halle Berry at the 2012 Entertainment Industry Foundation Revlon Run/Walk for Women, which Halle co-hosted, and where the Oscar winner talked for the first time about her recent confrontation with paparazzi.
Last week, Berry lost control with photographers camped out in front of daughter Nahla’s pre-school, screaming, “I’m doing something honorable -- I’m not harassing people!” and calling him expletives.
Berry told Mario, “I hate that I lost my cool, but you know, I'm human. That happens and when it comes to my daughter, I'm ferocious!”
The Oscar-winning actress lamented there isn’t much that can be done about this invasion of privacy. “You know, I don't know… I've been struggling for years. There are no laws here that protect our children and as a mom, coming to the school… not only my child, but all the children that are there. It's just wrong, wrong, wrong.”
Halle added, “You know, I think I'm going call Obama and say look, can you help us? I know this seems like a little issue right now. But it’s a big issue in our lives and our lives at the school and our children being protected. I think it’s really, really important.”
Berry was also pleased to be a part of the EIF/Revlon Run/Walk for Women, which raises money for cancer research. “I've lost so many people. I know people struggling right now with cancer.”
