Halle Berry has revealed that she wants to change the laws surrounding the paparazzi's treatment of children.

The actress, who has a 4-year-old daughter called Nahla, suggested that the photographers' pursuit of young people is "becoming child exploitation".

"Nahla was just in a magazine and they said, what does she - and I think Gwen Stefani's kid - have in common?" she told Access Hollywood. "They were both nose pickers, and I thought, 'You know, we are stooping to a new low when we prop up our children and exploit them like this'.

"And people can't wait to open up a magazine and see what 4-year-olds are wearing. There is something wrong, fundamentally wrong, with that."

Berry described herself as "fair game" for the paparazzi but argued that children should be "off limits", adding that photographers can cause "chaos and a confusion" for parents and teachers when they loiter around schools.

"[Children] are innocent little babies that should not be exploited all over these magazines," she said. "I'm fair game, I get that, but my kids [and] kids at my children's school should not be harassed like that. It's just wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong and wrong."
