John Travolta: Celebs have privacy rights
LONDON -- John Tra volta says privacy laws should shield ce l ebrities from the kind of exposure suffered by Kate Middle ton.
Gossip magazines have published topless pictures of Prince Wil liam’s wife taken during a private holiday.
Travolta, who has faced un welcome scrutiny of his own private life, told the BBC that it is the "worst time to be famous."
"There is a right to pri vacy whether you’re famous or not fam ous, and I feel that anyone being invaded at that level is unfortu nate and there should be a law, no one would like that," he said in an in terview broadcast Friday.
Travolta said he almost retired from acting after the death of his 16-year-old son Jett in 2009.
But he told the BBC that "after three years Š of support from my church Š from people, fans, family I decided that it was OK to go back to work."
