Olivia Wilde has issued a statement about harassment after being stalked by paparazzi while sitting in the park. The pregnant actress was presumably trying to relax and just be a, ya know, normal human, when she caught a photographer scaling a tree to take her picture. The phrase "can she live?" has never been more appropriate.

"When you see pics of people looking angry it's because they're reacting normally to an extremely abnormal situation," Wilde writes in the above Instagram post. "I'm posting this so people understand that this 😡 face is how it feels to be followed by strange men (sorry but it's almost never a woman) who climb trees to snap pics of pregnant ladies."

Boundaries are always important when it comes to the spotlight, but considering Gigi Hadid was just assaulted (opens in new tab), and Kim Kardashian was just held up at gunpoint (opens in new tab), now is more than ever a time to remember that celebrities are real people who deserve privacy.
