George Clooney Slams French Magazine For Publishing Photos of Twins, Plans to Prosecute 'To Full Extent'
George Clooney is firing back at Voici magazine.
The 56-year-old actor revealed on Friday that he has plans to prosecute the French outlet for secretly taking and publishing paparazzi pics of his newborn twins, whom he shares with wife Amal.
"Over the last week photographers from Voici magazine scaled our fence, climbed our tree and illegally took pictures of our infants inside our home," Clooney said in a statement given to ET. "Make no mistake the photographers, the agency and the magazine will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. The safety of our children demands it."
On the cover of their latest issue, Voici printed photos of the new parents with one-and-a-half month old twins Ella and Alexander at the actor's Lake Como estate in Italy without the parents' consent.
An official photo of Ella and Alexander has yet to be released.
Upon hearing the news, Voici released the following statement to ET:
"George and Amal Clooney have been very public personalities for the last few years. Their wedding in Venice, in September 2014, was a very mediatic event, the pictures of them smiling to the public were seen all around the world. The birth of their twins, Ella and Alexander, had also been commented a lot, by themselves and their families. The images published in Voici this Friday are a response to a public demand. People love George Clooney and have been following his life story for years now. Those pictures do not put in danger Mr Clooney, his wife or their kids."
