Nov 06,2021 Monitoring Desk
Oscar-winning actor George Clooney has appealed to the media not to publish photos of his children to protect them from danger.
The “Oceans 11” star explained that his wife, Amal Clooney, as a human rights lawyer, fights the evil doers, making the couple’s children a potential target for revenge.
Clooney’s open letter, published in Variety, states, “The nature of my wife’s job is to fight and try terrorist groups, and we take every precaution to keep our family safe.”
“We can’t protect our children if a publication puts their faces on its cover,” he added.
“Batman and Robin” star wrote a letter to the Daily Mail and other publications, saying he was instructed to write after seeing online photos of actress Billie Lourd’s one-year-old child, news agency AFP reported.
“I am a public figure,” the letter said. “We have never sold pictures of our children, we are not on social media and we never post pictures because doing so would endanger their lives.” Not a foolish threat but real-world problems, with real-world consequences, ” wrote the actor.
The couple has twins, born in 2017.
