Brad Pitt is just fine after paparazzi crush



Tbdbradpitt111208 Don't worry, breathe easy, tell yourself it's only reality and Brad Pitt is okay after being roughed up by his own security detail. The actor was "grabbed, pushed and spun around" by a plainclothes guard who had been hired to protect him from photogs at the premiere of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Ho noes!!1!

"Though they were exceptionally more aggressive than usual, breaking through a security barrier and into a private holding area, ultimately (it was) just another day in the life," Pitt told Peopleof the paparazzi. But the scene at the L.A. theater got worse when the paps got a little too close for security's comfort.

"Brad didn't seem to mind having his picture taken and he instead seemed excited for the preview and was smiling," a shooter tells the mag. "While the theater security tried to push all the photographers out of the theater, one of the security guards accidentally grabbed Brad by the arm really hard."

It's good to know the guy who played Tyler Durden in Fight Club and the pikey bareknuckler from Snatch can handle a little tug on the arm. next thing you know, People will be writing stories labeled "exclusive" because he gets a little sunburned or catches a hangnail in his coat zipper.
