George Clooney has urged news outlets to keep his children’s photos out of the press, saying he fears that public photos would put their lives in jeopardy.

Clooney has four-year-old twins with his human rights lawyer wife Amal. He released an open letter to the media addressed as “the Daily Mail and other publications.”, this Thursday. 

The actor said he has “accepted intrusion” as part of the price he has to pay for being a public figure. However, his children never chose to be celebrities.
Our children have made no such commitment,” the Oscar-winning star noted.

Clooney also mentioned that his wife’s job, which involves working against extremist groups, meant the couple have to take extra precautions to keep their family safe.

George Clooney rightly pointed out:
“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 reiterated.

Amal Clooney specializes in human rights and international law. She has been representing victims of atrocities in Iraq, people fighting for freedom of speech in Egypt, and working with the United Nations on inquiries into the civil war in Syria.
