Drew Barrymore - Drew Barrymore Turns To Steven Spielberg For Paparazzi Advice

Actress Drew Barrymore turned to her godfather Steven Spielberg for advice on how to protect her baby daughter from the paparazzi after crying over the invasion of privacy for two months.

The Charlie's Angels star grew up in the spotlight after making her movie debut in Spielberg's E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial when she was only seven.

Since then, her every moment has played out in the tabloids thanks to relentless photographers, but after becoming a mum to little Olive in September (12), Barrymore has grown more determined to shield her tot from the intense spotlight she endured as a kid.

During an appearance on U.S. chat show The View, she says, "(I've been) crying for two months about having to take my daughter outside into this very tumultuous world that has no protection for people. I agree with other countries when they won't allow the kids to be photographed. I think there has to be a limit and we teach our children boundaries, and yet the world doesn't have any boundaries to our children and that is an anomaly that I do not support."

And Barrymore reveals she turned to the legendary filmmaker for guidance on how to handle the shutterbugs, who have no qualms about snapping pictures of her child.

She continues, "They make so much money, it's crazy, it's like going against the most evil force that you'll never win against. But maybe there's something we can do. I need to look deeper into it... Unless I was to move underground with no windows, there's no way to avoid this, so I thought about the people that I look up to... People who have grace and they seem happy and they give us an example of how to behave. I talked to my husband (art consultant Will Kopelman)... He's someone I think about when I think about that kind of person; I talk to his family, who I love. I talk to my godfather Steven Spielberg; I seek advice from him."
