Bryan Singer -- Worst Strategy Ever


After ripping the man who accused him of sexual abuse, "X-Men" director Bryan Singer misstepped in a big way this weekend by literally sprinting out of a coffee shop to avoid our camera.

After spotting our photog, Singer hid out inside Coffee Bean in West Hollywood for roughly 30 minutes waiting for a car to arrive ... and when it did, he made a bee line for the door, swung himself into the passenger seat and peeled out into traffic.

It's a pretty basic concept ... a normal walk telegraphs the message a lot better than a dead sprint.

Just sayin' ...
