Winslet and RocknRoll on 'embarrassing' photos court win

Kate Winslet and Ned RocknRoll have explained why they sought legal action to prevent "embarrassing" photos of him at a fancy dress party from being published in the press.

The couple issued a statement after a High Court judge blocked The Sun from printing the images from 2010.

We have stopped The Sun from publishing semi-naked photos of Ned taken by a friend at a private 21st birthday party a few years ago. The photos are innocent but embarrassing and there is no reason to splash them across a newspaper.

We recognise that in the internet age privacy is harder and harder to maintain. But we will continue to do what we can, particularly to protect Kate's children from the results of media intrusion. We refuse to accept that her career means our family can't live a relatively normal life.

A High Court hearing will continue tomorrow on the bid by the new husband of Oscar-winning actress Kate Winslet to stop The Sun printing photographs taken at a private fancy dress party with an "outrageous" theme.

Lawyers for Ned RocknRoll said there is no public interest in publishing the images and that he had been a "relative nobody" prior to his marriage.

The paper argues he has "propelled" himself into the position of "public figure".

The judge was told that photographs had been posted on a Facebook page belonging to Mr RocknRoll's friend.

He heard that Mr RocknRoll had been wearing a costume and could be seen "partly naked".

Kate Winslet's new husband Ned RocknRoll has today asked a High Court judge to stop The Sun from publishing old photographs of him at an "outrageous"-themed fancy dress party.

Mr RocknRoll, who changed his birth name of Abel Smith in 2008, said there was no public interest in the tabloid printing the private pictures, which were taken more than two years ago, as he was not a role model and was a "relative nobody" at the time.

Lawyers for The Sun are expected to contest Mr RocknRoll's application later today.

The newspaper said Mr RocknRoll, a marketing consultant and nephew of tycoon Sir Richard Branson, obtained a temporary injunction last week.

Winslet said the Queen congratulated her and asked how much she enjoyed acting. "I said yes I liked it but not as much as being a mother. She said, 'it is the best job'."

Winslet has a daughter, Mia, 12, with first husband Jim Threapleton and had a son, Joe, with American Beauty and Skyfall director Sam Mendes in 2003.
