Has everyone seen this? If not, it's Tobey Maguire being a total fucking asshole and smashing some dumb schmuck's camera. No doubt there's better ways to obtain a photograph than running up and sticking your digicam in some celebrity's eyes, but shouldn't Spider-Man be so used to people snapping pics that he doesn't flinch like a newbie before striking aggressively?

Take it easy, Tobe. With great fame comes great numbers of annoying fans.

as perfect and unflinching as you seem to think you are cord, i'm sure that having someone invade your space to that degree would annoy you as well.

your standards are so very high. do you live up to them?

I've never liked him and I don't understand why he's as successful as he is. He doesn't seem like an especially good actor. He's fine. I guess he's good at being Peter Parker, but so many people could've been good at that. I mean, I could've done it.

Hey! I SHOULD have done it. I should be an actor. No, wait. I like my cubicle too much... :(

I don't like him at all. However, I don't think this even remotely registers on a dick radar. Being used to it or not, it has to get old.

While it would suck to have cameras up in your business 24/7 (price of fame), it's also not very nice to slam expensive cameras on the ground...a nasty word or two would suffice I think.
Then again working with Snaggletooth would piss me off too.

While I've not been in this particular situation, I'd like to think that I wouldn't smack someone who was eager to take a picture with me because they appreciated my work.

Paparazzi don't always "appreciate the work" of the celebrities they're invading.

Hes got a new baby. No sleep, all that work, never resting becuase you are on an ENDLESS trip across Europe with an exceedingly annoying coworker.... Had it been me, his camera would have sustaned more damage when it landed across the street.

I have an anger management problem tho.

This kinda makes me want to see Spider-man. Tobey has an actual personality and actual emotions after all? I'm pleasantly surprised.

B.Yaya, it was a photograph to be - but another way to spell Tobey is Tobe? Maybe? Dunno.

What I do know is that before hitting the dude he said, "don't touch me, dude." The Pap was totally trying to get a reaction to sell a "TM is a dick" story. Looks like the video pap beat him to it!

Photophobe. Afraid of photos. But it's Tobe. So he's a photo-Tobe.

Score one for Kitchy! That makes much more sense that what I thought it was. I totally read Tobe as still sounding like Tobey, then tortured the hell out of it. I feel like a complete idiot. Gold stars for you!

cord -
do you actually know if the photo seeker was just a fan? i would assume that if one really wanted a photo with or of their favorite celebrity they would just ask. also, if i'm not mistaken tobey said "don't touch me", so it would seem that something went on before the cameras started rolling. mostly, i can't believe/am disappointed that you are taking tmz video at face value.

I don't blame Tobey for doing that. It kind of looked like the guy ran into him or jammed his camera into Tobey's shoulder. I would've knocked that shit out of his hand to.

Let's just say, Toby has job security for life now...He is set to marry a studio "big-wig's daughter--Jennifer Meyers. They had the baby first...and he has been SUPER busy--filming Spiderman 3 etc. I personally LOVE Topher Grace--who showed up unexpectedly on THE LETTERMAN show last night :D He is such a HOTTIE!

The guy came up behind him, put his arm around him, and shoved a camera in his face. I have no sympathy for that overzealous fan. He got what he deserved.

Tobey McGuire is the Steely Dan of Hollywood. Dorky, you're pretty sure you don't like him, and then the next time you see Wonder Boys you can't get it out of your head. Give him another chance.

I'd like to see more of this. Either I'd like to see him do it again, or I'd like to see Conan or somebody make fun of it, with an actor playing Tobey knocking a bunch of crap over, like the Eiffel Tower and stuff. Or he keeps running in at random points in the show and knocking the mug out of Conan's hand.

Hopefully, this could lead to actual Tobey showing up unexpectedly to do it. That's the goal.

The only "asshole" is that fuckstick with the camera and the blogist who thinks that pushing a total stranger away when they invade your personal space by touching you and taking a bullshit "I'm with Tobey" photograph is somehow wrong. There's no reason for Maguire to assume that the prick was a "fan", nor do we know that either. And irrelevant barbs about Maguire's talent are just sour grapes from tabloid-guzzling retard sheep.

I have heard many stories about the dirty looks that Maguire shoots his fans -- finally I get to see the dirtiest of dirty looks! He's a real little creep. Something about him is just weird -- Peter Lorre weird.

Half the time I post that I don't get something, then I forget to look back and see if someone has clarified for me. Kind of ruins the joke when someone has to explain it, huh?

Well what to say. If the dude with the camera was someone I knew I would say to them press charges for Assault. What a nasty thing to do. Another spin is that his handlers were not doing there job. They guy with the camera should not have been allowed to do what he was doing. People in the public eye will be treated poorly if they continue to hold themselves at a higher station than the common citizen. My view point is, I meet Steven Baldwin at my church in Sackville, Nova Scotia. Love his work in past films but at the end of the day he is just another Christian. No handlers, no I am better than any of you attitude. He was just like me, and a lot of you. We are just people regardless of our wealth, job or heritage. Can't we just all get along! This Canadian wishes you all a good summer. To the Celebrities out there, ya we love you and your work in television and films but we don???t think you should be mauled because of it. Hope you enjoy Halifax during your next visit. Oh and Steven if you hear about this we are praying for your family and your brother becoming a follower of Christ. If you want someone to pray for, pray for B Spears. I think she is lost and finding her way back to the path will help her.
