I've seen just how close paps get, I mean in your face close….not surprised when something like this happens.

Good for him. What kind of man would just sit there if another man kicked his wife/GF?

C list actor kicks pap while defending his no name girlfriend. Definitely gossip blog worthy.

The pap must have seen Lara bingle's reality show. I'd like to kick her in the shins too!!

The weird thing is that the bar where it happened, the Cubby Hole, is (or was) a lesbian bar. I know straights sometimes hang out in gay clubs - I've done it myself, with gay friends - but a straight couple hanging out in a lesbian bar is unusual.

BTW, someone was mentioning the other day an article about actors Hollywood tried to make A-list, without success. Worthington was one of them, as was Taylor Kitsch, Taylor Lautner, Clive Owen and (gulp) Paul Walker. The article, which was first published in July 2013, can be accessed here.

Kanye loves this guy!

If you don't want Paps in your face, do NOT become a Public Person!

For some reason, I don't buy this.

When do we ever see pap pics of Sam anywhere? Everyone has forgotten about him and he needed to jump back into the spotlight with a bang.

Sam starred in the highest grossing movie of all time.

Nutty_Flavor said...

Yeah, he starred in it in 2009. Doesn't mean much in 2014. Just ask Billy Zane.

Don't know who Miss Bingle is but she has a lovely smile.

Usually you don't see that many paps around NYC. Usually you just see them hanging around the Rose Bar or at a couple of places in the Village (where LILO might be hanging ). I blame Alec Baldwin!

I don't know what to say...except Sam Worthington was in NYC and didn't call? So upset.

Jason Blue Eyes said...

Was the pap an employee of TMZ? Usually they're quick to distance themselves of unruly pap behavior by stating the pap isn't our. They didn't do that today.

Hey, don't knock Billy Zane. I just saw him star in a movie with our beloved AnnyLynne McCord.

why the fuck is a pap touching a woman??!!! thats violation
kudos to sam for sticking up for his woman

This could easily be a mutually beneficial set up. Both men agree not to press charges, photos worth money and Worthington is in the news again after failing to make a blip with the whole are they engaged photos on Instagram last week. Everyone wins.

Sam just signed on for 3 more Avatar movies, he is financially set for life. He was a flash in the pan and didn't parlay it into permanent A list status but he will do nicely with riding the Avatar franchise.

He seems like a regular aussie he likes to drink, have pretty blonde girlfriends and just do his thing whatever it is at the moment.
