Celebs Throw Their Support Behind Kristen Bell's #Pedorazzi Campaign

Celebs have had enough of the paparazzi, but that's nothing new.

What is becoming increasingly troubling is the lengths they will go to in order to get photos of celeb kids.

They show up at their schools, they yell things at them to try to get a reaction--it's pretty shocking to see what really goes on in order to get some of those shots.

"I chose a public life," Jennifer Garner testified when she was trying to get Senate Bill 606 passed back in August. "My three children are private citizens...I love my kids. They're beautiful and sweet and innocent, and I don't want a gang of shouting, arguing, lawbreaking photographers who camp out everywhere we are all day, every day, to continue traumatizing my kids."

Fortunately, the bill DID pass, but while it did help to redefine "harassment" of children, it did not make publishing images of the children against the law, so some celebs feel it's not enough.

New parents Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard have now spearheaded a brand new anti-paparazzi movement to help keep celeb kids safe from overzealous photogs.

They are encouraging fellow celebrities to boycott media outlets that publish pictures paps take of kids and have even created a hashtag (#pedorazzi) to help the whole thing gain traction on Twitter.

Celeb parents such as Katie Holmes, Malin Akerman and Ben Affleck have already shown support for their efforts, but even some celebs who don't have kids of their own still support their cause. Jennifer Aniston and Bradley Cooper are just a few of the childless celebs who Kristen and Dax say have also shown support.

Also, news outlets such as JustJared now enforces a #nokidspolicy and says that they will not be publishing pics of kids who are not celebs themselves. People magazine also published a letter from their editor explaining that they do not support paparazzi who target celebs' kids.

Do you think celeb kids should be off-limits for photogs?
