Josslyn says she doesn’t know why he cares what strangers think and reminds him that more people are talking about her, not him. Cameron says that he didn’t really want to do the Invader article, and Josslyn says it was pertinent that they do the article so that they could state unequivocally that the two of them did not record their intimate moments for public viewing and that what was done to them is illegal in the state of New York.
