Paparazzi Eavesdrop on Douglases with Baby Monitors
LOS ANGELES ( - Oscar winner Michael Douglas says that the paparazzi have gone too far, exploiting equipment meant for his children to eavesdrop on him and his wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones.

"They could turn to the frequency and listen to conversations in the house with baby monitors," Douglas reveals in a Thursday, June 23 interview with "Access Hollywood." "There is such a selfish bounty hunter quality about it."

The Hollywood couple has two children together: Dylan, 4, and Carys, 2.

"Desperate Housewives" star Eva Longoria -- who is co-starring with Douglas in the upcoming White House thriller "The Sentinel" -- also has had frightening moments with unscrupulous paparazzi.

"I'm a single woman who lives alone," she says. "So when I come home & there's people hiding in my bushes, I don't know if it's a rapist, I don't know if it's murderer, and then it's a paparazzi [sic]."

The paparazzi have been criticized for going to extreme lengths to dig up dirt or snap photos of celebrities. Recently, "Herbie: Fully Loaded" star Lindsay Lohan had her car rammed by photographer Galo Ramirez's minivan, some say deliberately. The young starlet has hired attorneys to investigate the crash and is considering taking legal action against Ramirez.

Perhaps the most tragic incident occurred in 1997 when Britain's Lady Diana and her lover Dodi al-Fayed died in a car crash fleeing from aggressive paparazzi.
