Pregnant Evan Rachel Wood slams the Daily Mail for perving at her unborn baby
The Mail, of course, took the pledge never again to publish paparazzi photos. It did that to honour Princess Diana. On 8 September 1997, eight days after the death of Princess Diana, the Mail wrote:
Mail leads the way in banning paparazzi pictures.
The proprietor of the Daily Mail, Mail on Sunday and Evening Standard announced last night that his papers will not in future purchase pictures taken by paparazzi Viscount Rothermere, chairman of the Daily Mail and General Trust plc said: ‘I am, and always have been, an admirer of Diana, Princess of Wales, and nagged my editors to protect her so far as they could against her powerful enemies. In view of Earl Spencer’s strong words and my own sense of outrage, I have instructed my editors no ‘paparazzi’ pictures are to be purchased without my knowledge and consent.’
In other news, pregnant actress Evan Rachel Wood says she never spotted paparazzi taking photos of her as she left a hospital. She was holding her ultrasound scan. She went on Twitter:
Or as the Daily Mail put it: “The 25-year-old actress was clearly overjoyed as she emerged holding an ultrasound scan of her unborn child in Los Angeles”. The headline championed it as “Baby’s fist picture”. The actress “can’t stop smiling“.
How the Mail loves those little kids.
PS: The request: “I would like to ask @mailonline to please remove the photos because they are private medical records, and it’s an invasion.” It’s been granted. The Mail’s removed the picture.
