Jake Gyllenhaal Kicks The Shin Out of Paparazzi

Jake Gyllenhaal Kicks The Shin Out of Paparazzi

A videographer followed actor Jake Gyllenhaal as he was returning from a scheduled lunch break during jury duty on Wednesday (January 28) in Los Angeles.

The 28-year-old frustrated actor was seen walking into a door after pushing instead of pulling and then kicking the videographer’s shin.

FYI: Jake was excused from jury service in the battery case.

DO YOU THINK Jake had the right to kick the videographer?

Aw poor Jake, everyone has bad days

# 2

umm ya its called some space everyone deserves it and if you get in the way then its your fault dude

# 3

I can imagine the Paps can get old…him and Reese hate them, that’s for sure.

# 4

i hate those littel f*ckers…that should be considered stalking or something. Not Jake G.’s fault.

# 5

This guy definitely deserved…. Go Jake.

# 6

I’ve seen this video. Aside from the stalkerazzi’s whingeing, where is there real proof that he got kicked?

# 7

haha! I have to say that I love the paps – they’re so freakin’ funny and just doing their jobs. I love Jake too though – cutie!

# 8

He literally push camera into Jake face…. and his voice OMG like a girl :)))

I’m totally against violence.
I wonder why, if the paparazzi bother him so much, he is with Reese Witherspoon, who is known to arrange photo ops every now and then for promotional reasons.

I saw the video, too. Jake just kicked out backward, if the dope was too close, then he might of gotten the soft end of a tennis shoe. Big deal. It wasn’t really a kick. Jake wasn’t aiming, next time he should! Those pap who get right up on someone and then try to ‘engage’ the victim with their insipid banter, like aren’t we buds kind of thing, need to back off. The stars should just try their best to ignore them as the paps want an overreaction, it makes their pocketbooks. I can’t help but think what Brad Pitt said, about those paps calling his children by name to try to get the kids to look at the paps, that is awful.

I think every celebrity should have the right to hit a papparazzi when they’re intruding their private lives. It’s absurd what they do to actors who are normal people. There should be a law against photographing and filming people without their permissions.


Although I’m sure Jakey-poo isn’t proud that he lost his temper. Some of these paps need to learn some manners!

Taking pictures or filming is one thing, but pushing, shoving, touching people, tearing at their clothes to get a better shot is overdoing it and shows no respect at all.

I wonder how those paps would feel if someone invaded their personal space everywhere they went, bothering them, shouting profanities.

If they get within arm’s reach, they’re too close and only get what they deserve.

whatever, its not like he purposely gave him a good kicking, the guy was antagonizing him shouting ” you just assaulted me” one touch and its bloody assault.

This reminds me of a video a while back of Orlando “hitting” a pap. The guy was trying to follow Orlando in his car, and Orlando stopped in teh middle of the road, and got out to confront the pap. You could almost hear the pap wet his pants. Orlando, through the open window, politely asked the pap not to follow him, and then patted the guy on the arm. As Orlando was walking away, the pap yelled “thanks for hitting me man”. Of course the headline on the pap site was something like “Orlando lashes out at photographer”. Either the paps are looking for an excuse to sue, or they are the biggest pu**ies on the planet…..maybe both.

I would have done the exact same thing. These paps get to close for comfort.

The day before Jake spit at a pap. Both days there was 1 pap, not a mob, no yelling at him with rude questions, no pushing, no touching but Jake flew off the handle. The pap was NOT out of line and Jake did NOT have the right to kick him or to spit at the other one. Somethings terribly wrong with Jake.

Why did he even go into show business, if he don’t want publicity in photos. He should have been a doctor, or lawyer, or brick layer.`

Trust me, one day he and Reese will be begging for someone to pay attention to them, and take pics of them.

all you who say “the paps deserve it” – guess you’re not going to visit gossip sites anymore, right? Uh huh.

Well YAH, the paps was violating his 3 feet of space, everyone needs space and the paps deserve what they get.

Those stupid photogs throw the word assault around WAY too often, The Idiot was on Jake’s a$$ and got hit with the door!
Maybe next time the photog should watch where he is going insted of having the camera in the celeb’s face.

he deserves an award for doing this. good for him!!!!!

hypocrites @ 01/29/2009 at 4:22 pm

Hey gossip whores, don’t bite the hand that feeds you. Paps are the ones who put the food on your table and you eat it up. If there weren’t pics for you to look at you’d all be complaining. So STFU.

The pap obviously came running right up in Jake’s face,
and deserved even worse than what he got,
which I believe was accidental in the first place.
Back off!!!
