Eiza Gonzalez from Baby Driver and Fast & Furious has hit out at claims she calls the paparazzi on herself, slamming a fan on Instagram.
The 31-year-old actress is not here for rumours that she sets up photography opportunities while she's out and about, insisting "I like to live my life [as] private as possible."
The interaction came after JustJared shared a photo of Eiza on her way to a TV interview with Jimmy Kimmel to promote her new Netflix show, I Care A Lot. The caption read, "Eiza González stuns in an apple green outfit from Burberry while arriving for her socially distant appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live in LA."
While many of the comments were supportive of Eiza, one in particular questioned the authenticity of the picture. "Guess who called the paparazzi? 🙊😜," it read.
But the actress wasn't here for the suggestion that the photograph was a staged opportunity. She hit back:
"Hi Hinda. Reading the sarcasm of your message I felt the need to answer your question. I’ve never in my ENTIRE career called or “tipped off” a paparazzi. To the point that I would encourage any paparazzi to come forward and prove that I have if such thing has been done. I’ve nothing to worry about. I’d encourage you not to believe everything you reading in gossip sites. What they’re intention is, is to sell. At all costs. I like to live my life private as possible. For the rest of my life. I’m unsure you know this, but paparazzi make a living out of pictures. Hence why they park outside our homes and follow us until they get a shot. Again. Got nothing to hide.
"But I won’t let you or anyone slander me by something that was made up by a gossip site to victimise their favourite male and villainise a woman who has been working non-stop since I was a child for a juicier narrative. I don’t need no man or photos to give me a career. I’ve worked pretty hard to be where I am. Wishing you the best this Thursday!"
Well, that's them told.
