Actor 'hates' snappers who invade his family

BRAD PITT has urged the US government to pass a law protecting celebrities and their families against the paparazzi because he's tired of photographers sneaking around to photograph his six kids.

The actor and partner ANGELINA JOLIE are tailed by celebrity photographers at home and on the red carpet - but Pitt insists their antics have gone too far.

In an interview on US chat show Today, he says, "Let me be very blunt: I hate them. I hate these people. I don't understand why they do that for a living.

"We've got to make a distinction between these people who photograph celebrities at events and people who climb over your walls or wear camouflage and call out your kids names as you're trying to take them to school to see if they'll look that way.

"I have no respect for these people. I do not like them. I don't understand how they can live their lives that way. There should be laws against it. They should not be able to follow kids like this, but there's not right now so that's the way it is."

Brad and Ange share three adopted children - MADDOX, seven, PAX, four, and ZAHARA, three. They're also parents to two-year-old biological daughter SHILOH, and twins KNOX and VIVIENNE.
