Jude Law: Hitting on a Female Pap?

Jude Law: Hitting on a Female Pap?-photo

Has Jude Law come out swinging as far as the paparazzi are concerned?

Female photographer Harsha Gopal tells British newspaper the Sun that the Alfie star lashed out at her after she tried to take his picture on Wednesday night as he exited London's Automat bar, where he had been partying with Leonardo DiCaprio.

"He hit me full on the face, it was a real stinger, it was very sore," the shutterbug tells the paper.

However, a spokesperson for the actor says the alleged blow was an "accident." "Jude was blinded by the camera flashes when he left the restaurant, raised his hand to shield himself and inadvertently struck somebody standing very close," says Law's rep. "He apologized and left."

This wouldn't be the first time that Law has been accused of mixing it up with the paps. In 2007, he was arrested for allegedly trying to grab a paparazzo's camera. (He was eventually cleared of charges.)

    A smart person is never been a paparazzi. And please stop saying she is a woman, because is the most sexist thing i never read. It was an accident, as you can notice if you see all the pictures about the incident not the only 2 or 3 that the sites are showing…..but, of course, if a paparazzo said it was on purpose it’s must be true! yeah, sure. I am outraged as a woman she is an upstart, an opportunist. Her attitude and the media attitude is disgusting. Ah! indeed, this woman does not have even a scratch! The next night She was waiting for him outside the theater with her gang, all smiles. Now She will become harassment? Well, she’s so fugly that the only way a man like him touch her it must have been by accident

    How are you going to complain about being hit after you blind someone with the flash of your camera? It's the risk of the job she chose. It does not say that it was HER camera flash. There is usually more than one pap taking photo's.

    It's clear she's a liar. She says he hit her in the face when it's clear he hit her in the back of the head. I think they should mow the paps down with uzzis, a little tap on the head isn't enough to discourage them. Jude says he was raising his hand to shield his face. I believe him. Dismissed. If he hit the back of her head then why is she holding her face? I am a photographer and these shots are clearly taken right after she was struck.Looks to me he slapped her face and the pics are the after shots. She would have turned her head away right after,that is why he is staring at the back of her head. Clearly he struck her, in the face. The question is was in an accident? The pics are no help,they will have to rely on eye witnesse's. His face is very angry though for someone who "accidently" hit someone. I dislike paps as much as anyone,but no one deserves to be struck. Law is a turd either way IMO.
