Sam Worthington has been slapped with a restraining order by the paparazzo he attacked. We told you about an incident in which Sam went all Clash of the Titans on a celebrity photographer named Sheng Li. The dude apparently kicked Sam’s girlfriend Lara Bingle in the shins and then Sam popped him in the maw. Worthington and Li were arrested. Sam faces several charges of third degree assault and could go to jail for up to a year…which he actually won’t because he’s a celebrity, but let’s still pretend for the time being. Li put a restraining order on Worthington because he thinks Sam’s going to come and exact his vengeance like he did in that one movie where the blue hippie naked cat people had their tree destroyed or whatever. It’s all a bit surprising for me as I was convinced that Sam Worthington wasn’t a real person. I have always thought that maybe he’s a CGI character like Jar Jar Binks and he lives on James Cameron’s keychain flash drive. I guess he’s real or else how could he have fought Li…unless he’s a new kind of hologram…
According to reports, actor Sam Worthington was enjoying a drink with his girlfriend at a bar in Greenwich Village yesterday evening, when a photographer named Sheng Li suddenly kicked her in the shin. While Sam already doesn’t look like the kind of guy who ever enjoys being where he is at any given time, he really didn’t appreciate someone kicking his girlfriend, so he punched the photographer in the face and gave him a nice cut above his nose. For his valiant efforts, Sam was arrested and charged with assault, but judging by the bruise on his girlfriend’s leg, he doesn’t have to worry too much about his public image or criminal record. Meanwhile, the photographer is being charged with assault, reckless endangerment and harassment, according to the Hollywood Reporter, but regardless of what happens to him, he’s always going to be the asshole that got punched in the face for kicking the guy from Avatar’s girlfriend.

It would have been cooler if “mace” referred to one of those spiked balls at the end of a club, but a doorman at a bar in Atlanta sprayed Sam Worthington with pepper spray and handcuffed him until police arrived because Worthington was drunk and abusive, and that was all before he even made it inside the door. Celebuzz says…
The victim told cops he refused Worthington entry to the venue “due to the fact that he was highly intoxicated.”
“(The Doorman) stated that (Worthington) was being disorderly verbally by using profane language. He also stated that (Worthington) pushed him twice with his hands. At that time he pepper-sprayed (Worthington) and handcuffed him until the police arrived.”
I’ve always assumed Australians could fight and hold their liquor, but this guy can’t do either. What an embarrassment. He should have gone straight home and his ex-girlfriends facebook page too, to complete his trilogy of effeminate sadness.
