Christina Applegate has gone “super mama bear” and slammed the paparazzi’s treatment of her daughter.
The 41-year-old actress and her husband Martyn LeNoble have two-year-old Sadie Grace together. Christina and the tot were swarmed by photographers after a long-haul flight this week and she has lashed out about the experience on Twitter.
“My child is mine. She is not yours. If she decided to become yours that’s her deal. For now she is mine. Leave her alone,” she wrote.
“As a mom. Imagine getting off a 6 hour flight at 11pm and your child is exhausted. Only to be met by flashing bulbs of cameras. It’s awful I will say again as I have before. When I started there weren’t paps. So I’m just not used to this. Especially when it comes to my kid…
Ok I’m done. Sorry. I got super mama bear tonight. It happens. It’s biological (sic).”
Christina bemoaned the public’s desire to know everything about stars’ lives and insisted her career shouldn’t make her public property.
She believes actors and actresses should be able to go to work without being followed, adding there is a vast difference between her job and being “a celebrity”.
“There was a time when actors just acted. They didn’t have to worry about what dress they wore. They just did their job,” she wrote. “That’s the land I wanna live in (sic).”
Christina’s comments were written late on Monday night American time and hit a nerve with singer Pink. The musician and her husband Carey Hart have two-year-old daughter Willow together and she was quick to retweet Christina’s message.
