Pregnant Evan Rachel Wood's Fury At Publication Of Stolen Scan Photos

Mum-to-be Evan Rachel Wood's outrage at publication of pregnancy scans

Mum-to-be Evan Rachel Wood has taken to Twitter to have a rant about the paparazzi photographer who sold pictures of her pregnancy scan.

She wrote that she had been in the car park of the hospital holding on to the ultrasound photos when the snap was taken without her knowledge. The pictures then appeared on a newspaper's website.

The actress tweeted her disgust at the measures taken to get the pic asking 'which sick f**k paparazzi hid in the parking lot of my hospital after my ultrasound?'.

'You took a picture of my ultrasound photo? I couldn't be more furious right now. I want to cry. My child isn't even born yet.'

She tweeted on Wednesday that she felt 'violated' by the pictures, and requested they were removed from the website which published them.

'I have never been more violated by a photographer,' she wrote. 'That's the inside of my body and my child. Would u like my soul too? Nothing is sacred.'

Directing her rage at the news site who used the pics, she wrote: 'FYI, I was not walking down the street parading my ultrasound photo. That was the roof of a hospital parking garage where you should be safe.'

She then requested the website take the images down, saying they were 'private medical records', and that it was 'an invasion'.

The site in question did eventually remove the photographs.

Evan, 25, confirmed early in January that she was expecting a baby with her actor husband Jamie Bell, 26, who played Billy Elliot as a youngster. Her publicist Amanda Silverman said at the time that the couple were 'thrilled' at the news.
