Sam Worthington Arrest

Dodged Bouncer Beatdown

11/5/2012 11:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
TMZ Live


"Avatar" star Sam Worthington went toe-to-toe with a massive bouncer just before getting arrested outside an Atlanta bar, at least according to the bouncer ... who called in to talk about Sam's strange behavior.

Plus, Richie Sambora dropped in to talk Hurricane Sandy relief, his new album, his daughter (with Heather Locklear) breaking into acting, and ... guitar lessons for Harvey???

Also, if Gov. Chris Christie's thinking about a presidential run in 2016 ... we've got bad news: America doesn't elect fat candidates! We tried to find one in the last century, but no dice. Not-so-deep down ... are we all fattists?

(0:00) We talk to the bouncer whom Sam Worthington allegedly assaulted in Atlanta last night -- and the guy smells something fishy about how the case was already tossed out.
(5:30) Jessica Simpson's dad Joe is NOT gay -- he swears.
(8:40) R. Kelly is still selling-out concerts -- Harvey can't believe people overlook that whole (alleged) peeing on an underage girl incident.
(14:00) Paulina Rubio has a lot of compliments about her ex-husband -- because she's trying to convince a judge that he capable enough not to rely on her for money.
(18:10) Legendary guitarist Richie Sambora is in the office! He stops by to talk about his hurricane relief efforts, the pros and cons about how "American Idol" makes nobodies into immediate stars, and what it's like to write a song that is loved all over the world.
(25:10) Terry Bradshaw says Reggie Bush's touchdown run looked like he was chasing a bucket of chicken ... which sounds super racist ... until Terry explains.
(29:10) The big argument of the day -- could an obese person win the presidency?
(34:00) Why isn't "American Idol" winner Phillip Phillips helping his family save their pawn shop?
(37:30) The Backstreet Boys shoot a video for their new Christmas song this weekend in Ananheim (Two things: It's November ... and 94 degrees there).
(39:00) The floor is yours!

I am losing my hearing and have enjoyed watching and listening to TMZ live. Have you ever thought of captioning it so people with hearing disabilities can enjoy it?

Celebrity women who hit/abuse their husbands don't get judged hardly at all, the mainstream media does not spend weeks/months/years attacking the woman, nobody boycotts her.
Mary J Blige bloodies her husband's nose, she's allowed to stay at the club, husband gets kicked out for yelling.
Nobody in the mainstream cared, public didn't care, no outcry.
Lane Garrison from Prison Break swings and **doesn't even make contact** at his girlfriend.
It's all over the media, with women making comments that he should go to prison and be beaten and raped.
For *almost* slapping a woman.
On the sex with minors...almost 90% of the teachers caught having sex with minor students are *women*.
Very rare with male teachers.
Is society mad? Does the media attack?
Nope, mainstream media literally ignores the dozens of cases per year. So does the public.
A visit to websites like..."The Weekly Vice"...and we see lots and lots of adult women getting caught having sex with minor students....ages 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15.
What does society say about it, including some media sources? They say: "The boys scoring with teachers are LUCKY!"
When it's a man they say he's a loser and the young women are victims.
Regarding Chris Brown and R Kelly, I think society should be asking themselves why they get so mad when men do certain things...but don't care when women don't do the same things.

Ya, let's bring up the weight issue when your TMZ room is filled with overweight issues. If you are basing your vote on a man's looks and weight, America is doomed.
