Fishburne Chases, Catches, Lectures a Paparazzo

11/6/2006 2:01 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Laurence Fishburne showed off his true dislike for the paparazzi after chasing one down and dishing out a ten-minute lecture on manners.

Fishburne spotted the photographer snapping pictures of the him outside his Los Angeles home over the weekend. Seconds later, the "Mission Impossible 3" star took off after the lingering photog. Once Larry caught up to the fleeing man, he sat him down on a neighbor's lawn and told him exactly what he thought about the man's job. Nice catch!

Kicking the photog in the eyes would also have been appropriate.

Unfortunately "talking" to these bozos is like trying to teach a pig to sign: its a waste of your time, and it annoys the pig.

.................And yet, TMZ, you use a PHOTO to tell story. When will these celebrity gossip websites realize that the people they beat up, are the ones they need to survive!

again, why do celebs act surprised here????? "omigaaa their taking my picture again!!!! im a famous celebrity, why would they ever do that????!!!" the thing is they take the pictures for the fans and celebrities need to face it, that's just something that comes with the job. DUH!!!! celebrities just need to shut up and smile, seriously!!!!!!

Strange how you don't see DeNiro, Pacino, Newman having these probs. Could it be that they don't try to balance on the edge with the Paparazzi? Shamuelessly manipulating them whenecver THEY need publicity and calling FOUL when its not convenient. The real good actors keep their private lives private and take their chances with the boxoffice. The middle players like Fishburne don't....

Get over it    

Sorry smash, but you spread falacies. Paparazzi don't take pictures for fans, they take pictures for the haters. I personally don't want to see my favorite celebs picking their noses or walking drunk out of a club. I want to see my favorite celebs either singing, or acting in a television show or movie.

Paparazzi sell the photos to the haters, so that those people can continue to spread hate on this website and any other avenue that may arise.

He should be happy someone wants to take his picture. His movies have sucked lately, he's really not a nice person and not a big celeb like he things he is..

Good for him. I totally agree that seeing these celebrity in compromising position is not what the true fans want. Paying $9.50 to see one of their movies does mean you own some part of them.

I'll say it again, get some pepper spray Laurence is does a photog's body good.

THE CELEBRITIES ARE ONLY HUMAN AND THEY REALIZE THAT THE PAPARAZZI TAKING THEIR PICTURES GOES ALONG WITH THE STATUS QUO, BUT SOMETIMES THEY JUST GET TIRED OF THEIR PICTURES BEING TAKEN AT INAPPROPIATE TIMES AND SOMETIMES THEY REACT. LAURENCE FISHBURNE HANDLED THAT IN A VERY DECENT WAY, BUT SITTING THE GUY DOWN AND TALKING TO HIM, UNLIKE MOST CELEBRITIES THAT RESORT TO VIOLENCE AND TRY TO KNOCK THE PHOTOGRAPHER OUT. I LOVE ME SOME LAURENCE FISHBURNE, ALWAYS HAVE AND ALWAYS WILL.
