Police were called to a Los Angeles supermarket after paparazzi swarmed new mum, Naomi Watts, as she shopped for groceries.
Fearing for Watts’ and other shoppers’ safety about 30 paparazzi were ordered to leave the Whole Foods organic supermarket and its car park in the upscale LA suburb of Brentwood.
The Australian actress was forced to hide in the supermarket’s outdoor garden section while a female friend drove a silver Audi station wagon close to an exit door.
Watts, 38, is hot property with the paparazzi since giving birth to son, Alexander Pete Schreiber, in Los Angeles on July 25.
Initially, Watts, wearing black shorts, a loose-fitting white top and no make-up, did not seem bothered by the paparazz as she shopped inside with her friend. Photographers with small digital cameras followed her through the store while others with long lenses and video cameras shot her from windows and doorways at the front of the supermarket. But later the police had to be called to clear the area.
Well, celebrity comes with a cost, everyone know that.
