Halle Berry has expressed her support for a new anti-harassment law which would restrict the activity of paparazzi in California.
The Monster Ball actress - who is expecting her second child - gave a testimony to the state's Assembly Committee on Public Safety yesterday (June 25), revealing that her daughter Nahla is 'terrified' of the snappers.
Berry told the hearing: "My daughter doesn't want to go to school because she knows 'the men' are watching for her.
"They jump out of the bushes and from behind cars and who knows where else, besieging these children just to get a photo."
The 46-year old went on to add that Nahla was left upset after the paps were involved in an altercation with herself and fiancé Olivier Martinez at LAX airport in April.
Halle stated: "They were trying to start a fight with my fiancé because if they get a photo of that, it's more money.
"[Nahla] asked, 'Mommy, are they going to kill us?' She didn't get to sleep until 3am, because she can't get this out of her mind and she doesn't understand what just happened to her."
After hearing Berry's statement, the committee ultimately voted in favour of the law, which has now been passed on to the Assembly Judiciary Committee for further assessment.
