Johansson slams paparazzi stalkers


Johansson slams paparazzi stalkers

Hollywood actress Scarlett Johansson is amazed the paparazzi are allowed to get away with stalking celebrities, and believes their unchecked behaviour is endangering lives.

The Lost In Translation star regularly finds herself under surveillance and has felt so threatened she's telephoned police a few times.

She says, "It's become insane. I went to LA a couple of months ago, and there were four SUVs parked outside my house every day.

"They would just follow me everywhere I went - if I went to buy paper towels, or I went to a meeting, or anything.

"I've called the police several times and said, 'Listen, there are people following me in very big cars. They're surrounding me in these huge vehicles - vehicles nobody should be driving - and I fell unsafe.'

"But the police can do nothing. It's not even the fact of being photographed - that's just an annoyance. It's actually scary. They're endangering people. Not just me, but everybody around me. It's horrible."
