LONDON: John Travolta says privacy laws should shield celebrities from the kind of exposure suffered by Kate Middleton.

Gossip magazines have published topless pictures of Prince William's wife taken during a private holiday.

Travolta, who has faced unwelcome scrutiny of his own private life, told the BBC that it is the "worst time to be famous."

He said "there is a right to privacy whether you're famous or not famous, and I feel that anyone being invaded at that level is unfortunate and there should be a law, no one would like that."

Travolta appears in Oliver Stone's "Savages," which opens in Britain on Friday.

It's his first film since 2010. Recently he has been in the headlines for his private life, including a discredited lawsuit claiming he groped two masseurs.
