Jude Law has lashed out at the paparazzi, insisting they are nothing more than stalkers who carry cameras.
The Cold Mountain heart-throb is disgusted by the media's obsession with celebrity and photographers who dream of catching a big star suffering a serious accident on film.
The 33-year-old says, "The invasion of photographers in a lot of people's lives is too much.
"If you took away their cameras they would be stalkers and freaks. Most of them are, anyway, or at least they look like it.
"The follow me to the set every day, hoping I'll fall, hoping I'll get hit by a car, hoping a bird will s**t on my head.
"And then there's a story. People either know that or they don't."
