Jennifer Garner in "When Paparazzi Collide"

A stoic and purposeful Jennifer Garner was nearly swallowed whole by a group of photogs yesterday.

The former "Alias" star got herself into a nasty crush when paparazzi swarmed her outside John Frieda salon on Melrose. As she weaved through the flashing mass, shutterbugs began pushing each other into cars, leaving Garner visibly annoyed. Still, as she neared her SUV, she managed a terse "Get off my car please," as paps parted like the Red Sea to let her pass.

Where's Sydney Bristow when you need her?
