Jennifer Aniston: Paps are like jailers

Jennifer Aniston

Jennifer Aniston says being hounded by paparazzi feels like "false imprisonment".

The actress has taken part in the documentary $ellebrity which examines celebrity culture and photographers who make a living out of snapping stars. Jennifer finds it distressing to be followed by paparazzi whenever she steps out in public.

"You're disoriented. You can't see in front of you," Jennifer explained. "It's false imprisonment… When I'm in my car, they're surrounding my car. I can't see. They flash light bulbs; it's night-time, and my vision is impaired."

Other famous faces to give their views in the film directed by celebrity photographer Kevin Mazur, include Salma Hayek, Sheryl Crow, Marc Anthony and Sarah Jessica Parker.

Jennifer Lopez is no stranger to being in the public spotlight, with her romantic life constantly hitting the headlines.

The star attracted a great deal of attention when she dated Ben Affleck and found the constant speculation about their relationship hard to handle.

"When you're… in the tabloids all the time, you're, like, 'Well, maybe that part is true; maybe it wasn't,'" she explained. "Then, all of a sudden, you're a victim to what they're saying and what they're writing."

$ellebrity also tackles the emergence of reality television.

While many stars allow cameras to follow their every move for TV shows, Sir Elton John would never consider such a concept.

"It numbs my brain - and the people being called celebrities who have their own reality shows, I wanna kill them," he admitted.
