Paulina Rubio Pulls a Woody Harrelson

9/21/2006 6:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mexican pop star Paulina Rubio is used to being photographed for her hot body. But it was her hot temper that is the star of this video.


Paulina was at Miami International Airport last week when a paparazzo followed the hottie around the terminal.

Rubio was apparently not feeling the love because she unleashed her rage on the photog by hitting his camera and repeatedly saying "déjame," which translates to 'leave me alone' in English.

With the added security measures in place at most airports, it looks like Paulina is more dangerous than any carry-on liquid.

A rep for Paulina told TMZ, "Paulina understands and respects the roll of paparazzi in the media and in the entertainment business. And Paulina will always make an effort to give them the photo opportunity they seek. There are certain times when circumstances do not permit this. There are also times when the aggression of the paparazzi is intimidating and overwhelming. Unfortunately, there are no laws that protect the privacy of a celebrity in a public place.

The aggression at the Miami airport...was so intense that it became a terrifying situation where Paulina was actually overpowered and injured by a photographer in an effort to get the photo.

We would welcome a dialogue with the media and the paparazzi in an effort to try to define some clearer guidelines for acceptable tactics and behavior.

In the future, we will make extra effort to ensure the safety of our client."

Got that?

I blame that paparazzo for that wild incident with Paulina Rubio. Does the paparazzi feel that we have to see EVERYTHING these stars do? It seems like they like to film them when they need a little bit of privacy. They need to respect these celebrities' space and turn their cameras OFF!!!! I'm sure that there are six to seven tabloid magazines trying to one-up each other with their magazine covers and photos, but they've been going too far with following people like Paris Hilton, Britney Spears, Angelia Jolie, Nicole Richie, Jennifer Lopez and countless others. And Paulina could have been more heated--she would have snatched the camera, smashed it and we would have seen a black screen on TV afterwards if it aired on Entertainment Tonight. Sometimes, we the public, aren't THAT curious about stars, just their next movie, album or TV show, and that's it. Yes, they are famous, but we need to give them their space and private time, and in most cases, just back off! There needs to be a balance between both sides!

I have no clue who the hell this woman is, but she should be thankful anyone even cares enough to take her photograph. Maybe it was "that time of the month."

Instead of saying "dejame" say "gracias" - fame is fleeting, honey.

We should not be telling her to 'get used to it' and accept this disgusting behaviour from the 'chasing papparazzi'. This type of shit led to the death of Princess Diana yet we still just allow it?

At the end of this video they are saying 'we got a story!' but all they did was provoke her into madness. If you poke a pitbull, stuck in a cage, with a stick for 20 mins... then let it out... dont be surprised when it locks its jaw around your throat, f#%^ers

Paulina Rubio is not married to Tommy Motolla. She is super famous in Latin america and Europe!!
Stop making such a big deal she's always been that way even before she started singing... she comes from a really rich and famous family in Mexico.

While paparrazi become a part of a person's life when they are in the limelight, they push it too far sometimes...most times. Proof in point is that this idiot didn't shut off his mike. In case anyone missed it, once she got ticked off... they backed off and they can be heard saying "we've got our story". What a pathetic little life they lead.
