“A self respecting press will respect [celebrities]. There is a diseased culture –especially in the celebrity culture. But the only way to protect the press is if the press has absolute freedom. And if they abuse that shame on them. We have to boycott stupid magazines. Just don’t buy it. You want privacy, don’t buy the magazines that talk about my life. The press needs to have absolute freedom. And the whole culture including the press has to learn to respect each other more”
