Sean Penn

FLIPS OUT on Fan

'I'll Make You Eat Your Cell Phone!'

Sean Penn went nuclear on a fan in a fancy San Francisco hotel last night -- threatening to jack the guy up after Sean caught him trying to sneak a cell phone pic ... and TMZ has the explosive footage.

Penn was at the Lobby Bar at the St. Regis Hotel in the Financial District ... when he saw a flash go off from another patron's cell phone and realized the guy was trying to take a photo.

A witness at the bar tells TMZ ... Penn bolted after the guy (who wasn't a paparazzo) ... and screamed at him, "Do we look like f**king zoo animals?"

Penn -- who was in town to speak at a sales conference -- also grabbed the man's phone and slammed it to the ground.

That's when our video begins ... and you can hear Penn yelling, "I'll make you eat the phone ... get the f**k out of here!!"

Moments later, a clearly irritated Penn complained to hotel management -- and can be heard saying, "You should do something about that."

We're told hotel management approached the fan and asked him if he wanted to call the police -- but the man declined and then left the bar. 

FYI -- we're also told the man had attended the sales conference where Sean was speaking and was wearing his name tag at the time of the bar confrontation.

We reached out to the St. Regis -- but they have no comment.

These so called "film stars" should be happy to have their picture taken. Isn't that they wanted before they became famous. If you don't want to be in the limelight, then get out of the business.

Pen is such an effing brat! Born to privilege in Hollywood, graced with talent, and ruined by arrogance and a superiority complex that makes Caligula look self-effacing. Is life all that tough, Boobi? See how your less economically blessed brothers and sisters handle stress, and take a few notes. What a GD loser you are.

He should be happy someone likes him enough to want to take his photo. Don't have a cow Spicoli.

Sean Penn is a great actor, but if he grabbed my cellphone and threw it to the ground, I would punch him in the face and worry about TMZ later. Seriously.

This guy is a class A a-hole. I wonder how Robin Wright put up with him all those years.. She must have lived a miserable existence.

What an ungrateful jackass. People really need to stop consuming anything with his name related to it so he doesnt get a cent more. Lets see if he can keep up his luxurious life without the fans.

If I was Penn, I'd be thrilled anyone even recognized me anymore. What an overrated pompous ass. Personally, I think he peaked in Fast Times at Ridgemont High. I think I read somewhere that if you don't like your picture taken in public it has something to do with being insecure about having a tiny penis.
