Two big actresses are asking California lawmakers to support tougher penalties on paparazzi who harass celebrities' children.

Halle Berry and Jennifer Garner spoke about how mobs of paparazzi posed a danger to their families.

"Like the very man who threatened to cut the babies out of my belly, who was arrested waiting behind our daughter's preschool standing among the throng of paparazzi," Garner said.

The actresses support a bill that changes the definition of harassment to include photographing children without a legal guardian's permission.
