I'd still hit it..................but not that way...

Two Nicole Kidman links in one day! It's like 2002 all over again.

The cops only ticketing the guy is a little weird to me. If it's illegal to ride on the sidewalk and then you compound that by actually hitting someone, it should be more than a fine. It should be charged as some form of criminal negligence.

I say this as a cyclist. I consider my bike to be as a road vehicle, subject to the Highay Traffic Act. If I drive on the sidewalk I should be charged accordingly, just as if I drove my car up and hit a pedestrian. (Around here there are provisions for small tire diameters, so a little kid on a tricycle can be on the sidewalk, but not a courier on a full-sized bike).

Good thing she didn't have any of her children with her or that cyclist might have nicked the kid, man.
 
2013-09-13 04:21:21 PM
Don't ride a bike with your eyes wide shut.

Remember, actors can fake injuries almost as well as soccer players.

I've always wondered, is there an exception in stalking laws for photographers? Seems like the repeated following would qualify.
 
2013-09-13 04:27:48 PM
I noticed they got paparazzi on their paparazzi.  Someone must have heard they like paparazzi.
 
2013-09-13 04:36:43 PM
Is it white knighting if I don't give a crap about the celebrity but have a lifelong hatred for both paparazzi's and bicyclists who think laws don't apply to them?

...'cause if yes then I think we should be talking about death by lethal injection after we cram that entire bike up his ass through those stupid shorts.

Kidman, 46, was returning to the Carlyle Hotel after attending the Calvin Klein show at New York's Fashion Week when photographer Carl Wu slammed into the starlet.

"Starlet"? At 46?

I'm not saying, I'm just saying...

If you're going to go around invading their privacy and annoying them, don't actually touch them, or years of aggravation may come to a head and they might fake an injury and press charges or sue you for all your worth just to get back at you and your ilk.

♫ She got knocked down
But she got up again ♫
 
2013-09-13 04:55:39 PM
From the video it looks like he hit her arm as he went by and that knocked her down. It wasn't a direct hit - just enough to knock her over. Guy's still an idiot.
 
2013-09-13 04:58:13 PM
I'm ok with this.

I understand that you give up some privacy as a celebrity. This guy went full douchebag.

You never go full douchebag. Unless you're in Florida.

I missing the video of her writhing in pain for a minute two, carted off on a stretcher while attended to by multiple medics and then popping up once she gets to the sidelines.

Yeah, but that's less area to absorb the impact. If he hit her on her harm hard enough to knock her down, she very easily could have a broken bone from the impact, not even considering the fall (probably with high heels on). It sounds like she doesn't, but she was hit hard enough.

Closed doors event, PPV. The medics were on their way in at the end of the video.

So if he's a paparazzi and a cyclist, that must make him a double asshole.
 
2013-09-13 05:18:28 PM
I ride both a bicycle and a motorcycle and consider most who ride either to be COMPLETE douchebags- esPECially bicyclists. If I was her husband and was with her when that happened, Mr. Two Wheels would be on the receiving end of a severe beat-down. In fact, I would beat him with his own tire pump. Just for the lulz.

So much this.  Celebrities give up a lot of privacy; it's part of the job but this photographer came in pretty fast and on the freaking sidewalk.

Calling an actress who's won an Oscar and been in movies for more than 25 years a "starlet" is like calling Peyton Manning a "rookie".

Like someone in the other thread said, massive fail on the part of her bodyguard. And like I said in the other thread, good thing the guy on the bike was a papparrazzo and not a thrice-named assassin.

Still, regardless of your comment: tire pump beat-down.

Yuck! Mommy hold me, her red elbow is giving me the evil eye!

OK, seriously. Paparazzi suck total ass. I can't stand the rags infesting my checkout lines. What a waste of paper and ink. These rags have "editors?" People who are supposed to work with the English language and all they resort to are printing 2nd-grade sentences? Paparazzi and the magazines that employ them including the "celebs" who call them ahead of time for "pr" should be immediately sent to Syria for the next round of chemical attack.

My favorite Paparrazzi confrontation starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Asshole and A Jr.


Go to 1:30 in the video, where the paparrazi references La Dolce Vita, then doesn't know or recognize the director of the movie (Fellini).

In Pennsylvania, you can ride on the sidewalk if you're under 14 years old, which works for me.

I also don't complain about little old Asian women who ride on the sidewalk, as they're basically like small children when it comes to cycling.  I did recently get cursed out by an old white guy who rode up behind me and had the balls to ask me to move out his way.  I told him to get the hell of the sidewalk and he started swearing at me.

She might be a long way on the wrong side of 30, but she's looking good.  If I plowed into her, she'd need a crowbar to get me off if you know what I mean.

/ and I mean I like getting hit with a crowbar.
