VIDEO: Julia Roberts: Protecting My Children from Paparazzi Is Their "Human Right"

The Mirror Mirror star talks to iVillage about keeping her kids safe and costar Lily Collins dishes about dating in the spotlight


Unlike some celebrity parents, Julia Roberts doesn't tweet about her children or post pictures of them to Facebook -- and she's mindful about keeping them away from the incessant flashbulbs of the paparazzi.

"I don't think it's different from any mom," the Mirror Mirror star (who has 7-year-old twins Hazel and Phinnaeus and 4-year-old son Henry with husband Danny Moder) tells iVillage exclusively. "You're just protective of your children. I'm not protecting them from anything that isn't their human right -- to be safe and private and not pursued in an aggressive way."

And while the Hollywood veteran, 44, is shielding her kids from the spotlight, her younger costar Lily Collins (who plays Snow White in their adaptation of the fairy tale, in theaters March 30) is trying to protect her love life.

"It's been interesting. I just still find it fascinating that people really care," says the 23-year-old actress, who famously dated Taylor Lautner. "It's bizarre that your private life is all of a sudden made public, but I refuse to not have a private life."
