Timberlake and Dicaprio Rep Slams Fellow Publicists

Apr 22, 2005 | 12:39pm EDT

Justin Timberlake and Leonardo DiCaprio's publicist Ken Sunshine has blasted fellow celebrity representatives for falsely joining his war against "stalkerazzi" paparazzi.

New York-based Sunshine, who also represents Ben Affleck, is an avid campaigner for a clampdown on persistent photographers, who follow his famous clients every move and jeopardize their safety.

Sunshine emailed American newspaper New York Daily News after hearing Demi Moore's publicist Stephen Huvane criticize photographer Steve Sands for "threatening her and endangering her" at April 18th premiere of Moore's boyfriend Ashton Kutcher's latest movie A Lot Like Love.

At the New York city premiere, Moore and Kutcher refused to pose for Sands, who has since fumed at the actress, saying, "What is the point of going to a premiere and not posing for photographers?"

After reading about the photography battle, Sunshine fumes, "What a f**king joke these Hollywood flacks are, making believe they really want to do something to combat these insane 'stalkerazzis'.

"They play the game of mouthing disgust at the most extreme misbehaviour of these stalkers so that they look like they're doing something for their A-list clients. But they're really doing business with these creeps so that their B and C-level clients can get in the magazines that are the lifeblood of the stalkerazzis.

"The only way to stop this insanity is to stop doing business with the magazines and TV outlets that pay silly money for photos.

"I've been on this lonely crusade for a long time, and constantly being told by these big-shot publicists, magazine editors and TV producers that I take this all too seriously, that I would be more understanding if I spent more time in LA, that if I had more celebrity clients I would play the game like they do."
