It’s a dangerous world out there for a TMZ photographer, and even more dangerous when you come face to face with Woody Harrelson, who is known for losing his temper and who is apparently still recovering from the intensity of his most recent role in front of a camera. Harrelson reportedly pushed a photographer and damaged his camera last Wednesday after being approached outside of La Guardia airport in New York. His excuse? He thought the man was a zombie.
A publicist recently released the following statement from Woody, which is surely one of the most ingenious arguments ever made:
“I wrapped a movie called Zombieland, in which I was constantly under assault by zombies, then flew to New York, still very much in character. With my daughter at the airport I was startled by a paparazzo, who I quite understandably mistook for a zombie.”
Awesome. According to CNN, charges are still up in the air, but if you ask me TMZ should be thanking him for giving them such good material.
