1. I was like, "no big deal" while reading the first part of the article
I mean, it was okay with me if he wants to protect his family from the spying eyes and flash bulbs.

But at the end of the article as it notes that he and mom of two are negotiating to sell the images to the highest bidder, well piss on him unless of course he donates that money to help others like for his Katrina rebuilding in NOLA (he could send some this way, I want solar panels)

2. He has the right to not have paparazzi benefitting from photos of his children.
He has done a lot of charity for a lot of good causes. If he doesn't want stalkers to profit off photos of his twins, who could blame him? Maybe he would rather the money go to a children's charity or into a trust for the future of his newborns.

He still does good for the world and for the less fortunate. I've got no beef with him over this.

3. They've already stated that the money for the pics is going to charity
and, if I'm not mistaken, Jolie and Pitt are among the most generous people in Hollywood.

Posted on March 31, 2008

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have donated more than $8 millions to various charities through their Jolie Pitt foundation in 2006 and these figures does not include many other charitable effort that the couple are involved with in 2007.

According to the newly released federal tax fillings for 2006, Pitt donated a total of $4,402,317 and Jolie with a sum of $4,123,613 behind the scene.

The foundation handed out $2,367,935 of the funds, including $1 million to both Doctors Without Borders (International Division) and to the Global Action for Children.

In addition donating money, the pair have been actively helping out those in need. Brad has been helping to rebuild New Orleans with the Make It Right Foundation which he founded (raised $5 million in 2007) and Angelina travels the world with the UN to advocate for refugees.

While other celebrities are spending their cash on million dollar mansion and anything else self beneficial, Jolie-Pitt are setting the perfect example for Hollywood.
