Liev Schreiber Breaks Up Fight Between Photog and Waiter Threatening to Eat Her Alive
Things got a little more than heated this weekend at Santa Monica's Giorgio Baldi restaurant between a paparazzi photographer and an angry waiter, and actor Liev Schreiber stepped in to break up the fight.
Schreiber was dining at the Italian eatery that evening, and upon making his exit, was of course bombarded by the flashbulbs and shouts of a gaggle of paparazzi photogs, including one woman who ruffled the feathers of the staff and refused to back off, taking a swing at the server with her camera.
One waiter confronted the woman, opting to give her a taste of what was to come if she didn't leave, according to TMZ. "You touch me with that and I will EAT YOU ALIVE! You understand? I will eat you! EAT YOU!" he shouts at her, as was captured on video.
Who should swoop in to urge the lady to back off, telling her "It's not worth it," but Schreiber himself. Of course the other photographers kept snapping away as the mess unfolded.
The (hungry?) waiter does manage to get the last word in, as the woman is shooed off the property: "Ciao," he says, waving.
Or did he mean "chow"? Hmmm.
