When paparazzi tried to bother Moneyball actor Jonah Hill in Los Angeles, he got annoyed and used a homophobic slur to tell a photog off.

Now Hill says of the incident, "I'm upset because from the day I was born, and publicly, I've been a gay-rights activist... This person had been following me around – just to give it some context, not excusing what I said in any way – this person had been following me around all day, had been saying hurtful things about my family, really hurtful things about me personally, and I played into exactly what he wanted and lost my cool."
