James Cameron in Major A-Hole Dispute

12/24/2009 9:55 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

James Cameron -- the guy who directed "Avatar" -- directed a few choice words at an autograph seeking fan last night -- calling the guy a "f**king a**hole" during an argument over a signature.


It all went down at LAX -- when James walked past a man holding an "Avatar" poster, and refused to sign. The man went back to Cameron and asked again to which James replied, "I don't owe you a f**king signature ... just get out of my f**king personal space."

That's when the fan lost it and replied, "I'm an asshole because I ask someone I admire for their autograph that makes me an a**hole? I make $15-an-hour at work to go see your film and I'm an a**hole?"

Ultimately, James calmly walked away from the situation while the fan continued to yell at him.

But the real question...

Well to put it plain and simple: buying a movie ticket buys you a movie ticket, nothing less, nothing more.

Surely it would of been nice if James would have sign off, but movie fans cannot expect that directors or actors has to have always free time just to spend time with them and with their requests, cmon.

Of course James could of handle the situation more politely, there's no question about it. Still, "the fan" also showed his true colors at the end of the video clip. So maybe James was bit harsh at him, but I think that street went both ways on that video.
