Spidey Sensitive? Tobey Slaps Photog

4/27/2007 3:57 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

He may be "Spider-Man," but Tobey Maguire did his best impression of the Hulk when he smacked a camera out of the hand of a fan who got too close. Tobey smash!

Maguire was headed back to his hotel in Paris when the fan, who was walking right alongside him, held the camera in front of Tobey's face to snap a pic. Tobey's spidey sense immediately kicked in -- and he swatted the camera to the ground -- you can clearly hear it bounce on the sidewalk.

Chill, Spidey.

back in the day    

Spiderman, Spiderman,
Does whatever a spider can
Spins a web, any size,
Catches thieves just like flies
Look Out!
Here comes the Spiderman.

Is he strong?
Listen bud,
He's got radioactive blood.
Can he swing from a thread
Take a look overhead
Hey, there
There goes the Spiderman.

In the chill of night
At the scene of a crime
Like a streak of light
He arrives just in time.

Spiderman, Spiderman
Friendly neighborhood Spiderman
Wealth and fame
He's ignored
Action is his reward.

To him, life is a great big bang up
Whenever there's a hang up
You'll find the Spider man.

"Don't touch me dude!" Slap

So Macho, huh?

The guy is Gay, Gay, Gay!

That "fan" who was probably just a wannabe papparazi, had a hold of Tobey's shirt with one hand and he was holding the camera in Tobey's face with the other, Did you hear Tobey saying "Don't touch me dude!" before he smacked the camera out of his face? The guy was holding on to him! Tobey's mistake - he should have punched the guy, not the camera.

While I agree that the guy invaded his personal space, I think that Tobey could have handled it much better. Saying "Don't touch me dude" was enough - he didn't have to knock the camera out of the guy's hand. He was acting like a whiney little baby. What a brat. He's in France promoting his film so he should expect that there's going to be a bit more attention from fans etc. than if he's just going to the grocery story at home or something. I've always thought that Tobey Maguire as an action superhero was dumb anyway - he's like an ugly little girl. I enjoy the movies for the special effects and all, but think Spidey should be called Suckey.

So over the Hogans...and TMZ    

While the photographer might have been out of line with his actions, let me just say that Tobey M is NOT NOW nor has he EVER been a NICE person.
As a person who works in a Vegas casino frequented by Tobey, in all the dozens of times I have seen him, I've yet to see him treat any of the dealers, cocktail waitresses, or any of the other personnel there with an ounce of decency or respect.
He acts like everyone there should be grateful they're waiting on him and that we are all indebted to him for the honor of his presence.
He never tips, just treats people like crap.
I can only hope that someday he finally gets bitch-slapped and gets treated the way he treats every other person he comes across.

The fan shouldnt have taken a photo in Tobeys face but slapping the camera out of the fans hand proves Mcguire is a rude ass.

These "stars" are such a joke! If there weren't any cameras taking pics, the "stars" soon begin to do irrational and shocking stuff to gain media attention! Wahhh! Tobey is a wimp who was chosen for the spiderman role. I can think of many other actors who would have been better. What a dork.

That fan got even something better than a picture - he's now all over the 'net as the guy whose camera Tobey Maguire smacked to the ground. How sweet is that?

You might call this guy a "fan", but anyone who shoves a camera at you like a proctologist is a paparazzi, no matter what they call themselves.

It's blatantly obvious to me that Maguire didn't mean to knock the camera out of the paparazzi's hand - he wanted to get it away from his face. This guy is a real weirdo, totally in his personal space. You can here Maguire expressing his apprehension - "Don't touch me, dude..." - and then bam! The 'razzi-freak shoves a camera right up his face! Maguire instinctively slaps it out of the way, but because the 'razzi didn't have a firm hold of it, it fell to the ground. Maguire keeps walking, cause he wants to get away from the freak before he causes an even worse altercation.

And you say "poor razzi'? An 'act of violence'? What a joke. Ugh. The 'razzi oughta be given a proctological exam with his own camera - so as to have a taste of his own medicine. That'd teach 'em.

I read all the comments and I think #50 is great. Now, movie stars make millions of dollars
and it is the fans that pay their salaries. And our salaries are very low compared to them. Even if the fan overstepped his boundaries, Toby did not handle it well . Didn't he learn to never cut off the hand that feeds him?

the little dork should be thankful he has fans. some of these celebrities need to wake up and realize how truly bleesed and lucky they are to make millions playing a make believe cartoon character!

Right on, Tobey! That was the coolest thing I've ever seen him do in or out of his costume.

What a douche that guy was. Can you imagine doing that to someone.

I'm glad Tobey bitch slapped his hand. As they say in France "hahahahaha"!!!
