Hugh Takes Kids to the Nintendo Store

December 27, 2012 || Written by Kristina in Gallery, Site News || 4 Comments

This post has actually made me reconsider posting candids. In many of the pictures from this set (which I did not upload), even Ava – previously said to love the paprazzi – seems annoyed by their presence. I’m considering blurring Oscar’s and Ava’s faces in future candid posts, whether or not they’re aware of the camera(s). It may take longer for me to update the site; however, I feel it would respect their privacy more while still allowing candids of Hugh (which I know fans enjoy and the reason why I continue posting them). What do fans think? Does anyone have an opinion either way?

  1. I live in Italy and here kids’ pictures are usually blurred. I remember Hugh himself once said that the posting of kids’ pictures is only allowed in the US. I think it would respect them more.

    This policy is definitely what’s served as inspiration for me (and this decision). I’m going to adopt it for the site as well, as it was never a choice for his kids to get photographed and I feel it would just be the right thing to do from now on.

  2. I agree, it’s not fair that they have to grow up with people following them around on the streets and taking pictures etc. I think it would be okay to take down the entire album of candids, all they usually are are a bunch of (basically the same) pictures of Hugh walking down the streets, unless it’s a press event (like Hollywood Walk of Fame) or a premier, I don’t see the need to have these candid photos of his children who deserve privacy.

    Although I realize candids are at times controversial (to post or not to post?), I’m not sure I’m keen on removing all of them. The images always get tons of hits/reposts, so I know a large amount of Hugh’s fans do want to see them — and, for those who don’t, they don’t have to look. That said, I am feeling terrible about subjecting both Oscar ad Ava to the kind of unwanted attention paparazzi gives them. By blurring their faces, I at least feel I can keep them out of the spotlight while still giving fans what they seek — that is, more pictures of Hugh. It’s the best compromise I can think of!
