The paparazzi are a huge part of the Hollywood fame game, whether celebrities like it or not.
The photographers who spend endless hours waiting outside posh hotels, nightclubs and in front of celebrities' homes aren't the most-well liked people in the industry, and they have a tendency to get a little too close for comfort.
Having a camera stuck in your face as you're trying to go about your daily business isn't fun -- but it's a reality for Hollywood's biggest stars -- so it's no surprise when a celebrity fights back.
Earlier this month, actor Alec Baldwin became the latest celebrity to get in a fight with a photographer. Though the actor denies he ever punched the paparazzo, he turned to Twitter to voice his take on the incident, writing: "A 'photographer' almost hit me in the face with his camera this morning. #allpaparazzishouldbewaterboarded"
It's a harsh statement, but Baldwin isn't alone in his disdain for the paparazzi. In May, Justin Timberlake and his business partner, Trace Ayala, learned just how intrusive the paparazzi can be, when some overeager photographers unsuccessfully attempted to snap a photo of the actor and singer, taking out their frustration on Ayala's truck.
Timberlake justifiably lashed out at the photographers, tweeting about the incident:
"So... A paparazzi can't get a photo of me so he kicks my best friend's truck door in..? And they wonder why they can't get a 'fair' shake," and added, "I mean, seriously... Not ruining my day though. #getaREALjob."
Though Timberlake used his words to express his feelings on photographers, there are plenty of celebrities who got physical instead.
