Hollywood actress Charlize Theron has a high opinion of paparazzi photographers - insisting she prefers their candid snaps to glossy magazine photoshoots. The South African star refuses to condone the "tactics" used by many snappers who go to extreme lengths to get pictures of celebrities - insisting she would much rather see images of celebrities looking bad in the media than perfect because it sets unattainable standards for youngsters. She tells U.S. newspaper the New York Times, "I don't like the tactics of the paparazzi, but in some ways, I almost prefer their unflattering shots to the glossy images in magazines. I like to see the human underneath."
