Woody Harrelson flew into New York La Guardia airport, and was “greeted” by a photographer from AOL sister site TMZ.com.
Now, normally when celebs meet face to face with the paparazzi, they put on a smile, let them take a couple of photos, and get into their car.
There are of course celebrities that don’t like being photographed, so they take it out on the poor cameraman. In Woody Harrelson’s case, he didn’t see a cameraman, he saw a Zombie.
And apparently, the normal thing to do when you see a zombie is punch it in the face and smash its camera.
Of course, at that point the photographer/zombie didn’t give up like most people would, so he chased Harrelson outside the terminal building, to the parking lot.
You can’t make this stuff up – Harrelson really claimed he mistook the guy for a frikkin zombie.
According to Woody Harrelson, he is currently shooting a movie called Zombieland, and he was “still very much in character”.
I swear, if that excuse gets him out of trouble, I’m going to start using next time I get harassed by airport security.
A video of the “kerfuffle” can be found on TMZ.com, to make matters worse for Harrelson, this is not the first time the actor has been involved in an assault of a photographer, another TMZ.com photographer has a $2.5 Million lawsuit pending for an alleged attack in 2006.
