Paps catch Halle Berry and daughter Nahla at a Malibu beach (April 7, 2012)

*Halle Berry is speaking out about the way paparazzi hounds her and her 4-year-old daughter Nahla.

The 45-year-old actress was recently denied permission to move to France, where privacy laws are stricter. She had planned to move there with fiance Oliver Martinez and her daughter, but a judge ruled against it, saying it would mean taking Nahla away from her father Gabriel Aubry.

In a new interview with “Extra,” Halle says paps here in the states are making her life a living hell.

”It’s not one photographer hiding in the bushes, it’s 20, 30 very close to us, causing commotion,” she said. ”I’m not complaining about me. I’m an adult; I can handle it. But children should not be subject to that. It’s just wrong.

”There are laws like [that] in France, which is the reason I want go there. Laws that protect children, protect right to privacy. All I want is for my family and myself to have a normal life. When I’m not at work, that’s very important to me.”
