LOS ANGELES: George Clooney has appealed to news outlets to keep his children's faces out of the press, saying he fears that public photos would put their lives in jeopardy.
Clooney, who has four-year-old twins with his human rights lawyer wife Amal Clooney, said in an open letter to the media he accepted that “oftentimes intrusive photos” were part of the price he had to pay for being a celebrity.
“Our children have made no such commitment,” the Oscar-winning star wrote in the letter released late Thursday.
Clooney, 60, said his wife’s job, which involves working against extremist groups, meant the couple had to take precautions to keep the family safe.
“We cannot protect our children if any publication puts their faces on their cover. We have never sold a picture of our kids, we are not on social media and never post pictures because to do so would put their lives in jeopardy.
“Not paranoid jeopardy but real world issues, with real world consequences,” the “Ocean’s Eleven” actor said.
Amal Clooney specializes in human rights and international law. Her work has included representing victims of atrocities in Iraq and working with the United Nations on inquiries into the war in Syria. - Reuters
