Of course if you are Uma and you have most of the ones who follow you on speed dial it makes things much better. The paps know they can be at home, hanging out and that she will give them a call before she goes out. She will tell them what time to be there, what she will be wearing, and where to meet.
It, is why for the most part you never see Uma looking the worse for wear when you see her photo taken in public. Hair generally looks perfect, makeup done.
You think someone with that close of a relationship with the tabs and the paps might leak a few things that maybe would put her in the best light. Uma really came out ahead in the whole Ethan Hawke thing. Yes, he was boffing the sitter, but you think Uma was just sitting at home knitting? Didn't hear about that part did you?
