High School Musical star Ashley Tisdale has blasted the lengths the paparazzi go to get a lucrative snap - accusing one photographer of breaking into her house.
The actress was forced to call police to her Los Angeles home after a snapper forced his way into her house in a bid to get exclusive video footage.
And the star has called for all paparazzi to be assigned identity badges, because she fears it's too easy for stalkers to become part of the media scrum.
She tells Access Hollywood, "They broke in, they came into my home before. They don't want middle America to know this is what they do to try and get pictures. The police were there and they (told me), you could say it's a robbery. I've never seen the guy again, but they go to an extreme for pictures."
She adds, "I wish they had badges. It could be a random stalker. They're like 40-year-old men following us girls around."
