Video: Don't Ask James Cameron for an Autograph

Posted: December 25th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Video: DonSubmit Comment
While walking out of the LAX airport, James Cameron was approached by a man asking him to sign an "Avatar" poster. Cameron refused, and when the man asked again, the director replied: "I don't owe you a f*cking signature. Just get out of my f*cking personal space."

Cameron later stopped walking to wait for his ride, but was visibly still furious over the altercation. And instead of just signing the poster, he decided to call the fan an "*sshole."

This prompted the man to clear things up for Cameron. "I'm an *sshole because I ask someone I admire for their autograph. That makes me an *sshole? I make $15-an-hour at work to go see your film and I'm an *sshole?"

Watch the video below to see the whole thing play out and let us know whether this changes your opinion of Cameron.

I be pissed off too if i was on flight at night, got off and got heckled by some dude wanting an autograph and was persistant.

Just get autographs from people at signings and sh*t, don't stalk them at airports and when they are out!

I think it's definitely possible that the guy asking for an autograph was with TMZ, trying to instigate a quarrel, but this is a pretty good display of how douche Cameron is. He's probably just pissed that his film wasn't what he hyped it to be.

I do believe this guy was trying to start something with Cameron why would he be just hanging out at the airport with a Avatar Poster just on hand? But still Cameron should have just took a few seconds of his time and signed the poster. It just proves even more that he is the '' Real '' *sshole here even if provoked.
Bob82 writes:

Maybe this guy really was with TMZ trying to piss Cameron off, and the first time he asks for the autograph isn't the first time, it's just edited that way. He could be bothering Cameron some moments ago and he was already annoyed. You see how first he wants an autograph and the he begins to insult the movie?

The guy should learn not to pester people. The *sshole is heckling him and you know if he got an autograph, the poster'd be on ebay before the night was up.
Who asks for autographs anyway after the age of ten?

kinda reminds me of that tarentino video where he threatened to punch a guy in the face if he didnt leave them alone. they are people too and arent always in the mood to be polite. they sign up for times to be like that at events because thats the right thing to do and the right time to get an autograph if you want one. but eh.

It's a two-way street. You don't want people bugging you after you've got off a plane at the airport, but isn't making small films for his friends and family to enjoy. He makes blockbusters. He didn't have to sign the autograph, but he can't be acting like a bitch. He is still making money because of people like that guy, and it's not like the guy climbed over his f*cking fence in the middle of the night.

rich/famous people sure have it tough......

@ Projekt....I think what you are seeing is alot of us who are skeptical about the editing and validity of the video. TMZ is well known for staging their bullsh*t to make a celeb look bad.

That being said, james cameron needs to get off his high horse as well.
TheGrittyNitty writes:

I'm sorry but I feel Cameron on this one (not like that). The "fan" bugs the sh*t out of me. He paid money to see the movie because he effing wanted to, it's not like he did Cameron a favor or anything. Besides that, the dude is just ingratiating. Period. Cameron hit the nail on the head when he said, "every time you open your mouth you absolutely justify my decision." Annoying POS.

I'm gonna hope that this is just because people are saying the film was not as good as he hyped it up to be (which it isnt). Its worth it for the 3D effects and that is it, once its on DVD and you can only watch it in 2D and bluray, the fad will be over. Also, Id be a little on edge if the film Id been working on for 12 years was dethroned at the box office by a "squeakuel." He's made some great films and he was fun to watch on Entourage a couple years back, but this Avatar ordeal has really got him on edge and its showing the true *sshole that lives in Cameron.

I find it very fishy that someone filmed the incident. To me it seems like the "fan" wanted to aggravate James Cameron and intended to get a bad response from him, you could easily make money off this video. Mr. Cameron is a free man and does not owe anyone a autograph, this could have been just a snippet of what really happened. He could have been following him around for a longer time. That being said, using profanity made the situation look a lot worse than it could have been and who knows what kind of other things were happening before that. The fan didn't deserve that response from Cameron but he did say no and the fan kept on bugging him.

We cannot judge Cameron based on a 2 minute you tube video.

Wouldn't you too be pissed off? I totally understand the reaction. Cameron has his private life, and this is every humans right. So people should leave him alone and stop bothering just because he did some nice movies.
darkraven28 writes:
on December 26th, 2009 at 11:43:51 AM

Weird. But maybe Cameron's had a long flight and didn't want to be bothered. He likely knew the guy was going to sell the autograph to make a lot of money and didn't want to humor him. But at least Cameron didn't go so far as to punch the guy out, which I think would have been justified though. There are times and places for autographs, like maybe the PREMIERE or one of the Q&As, and Cameron is simply expected to sign things there and play the game. He's not expected to humor a guy who hounds him at the airport. I support Cameron's position here but maybe he should have watched out for cameras in the area.

I don't think that anyone should feel like the have to give an autograph. But you should be nice if you don't want to. I think that people should respect their lives enough to not bother the hell out of them, but if you are famous then you have to know people will ask. And you should be nice about it.

it was not a "fan" this was a set up for TMZ to make people look like "*ssholes" or "dumb".... This is no different from what they always do.. Since this is Avatar/James Cameron bashing site they post stupid stuff like this on here so all the other bashers can talk about it.

Ah, the fan and Cameron are both wrong. A signature would have been easy enough, can calling the guy an A-hole is way out of line. At the same time, the guy was clearly stalking Cameron carrying the poster.

Both are to be stoned at 11am tomorrow, Along with Chris Hemsworth.

Man, douche celebrity day...

Are you kidding me Spooky? He has the "right" to call him whatever he wants. We all exercise that right on this website at least a few times a day, why can't Cameron? This guy was obviously a TMZ plant who deserved what he got. He's lucky he didn't pull this sh*t with Russel Crowe, they'd still be surgically removing a Gladiator poster from his ass right now. The guy was right about the plot though :)

Why does it bother celebrities to be kind to fans? Why does fame and money then transforms them into douchebags? Thereīs Christian Bale, Megan Fox... and now James Cameron... Donīt they know that one by one, all of their fans are the ones that keep them there... where they are? Earning million dollar paychecks and staying on the place theyīve achieved? Really... maybe one fan isnīt at all important... multiply it by millions and millions around the world and then youīll get a result. The billion dollar earnings around the world and the 800 million dollars in the US alone Titanic got in B.O results... where because of fans... this amount earned, permited Cameron not to work since 1997... thats 12 YEARS people!!! 12 years sitting on the money fans made him win... and he pays being that way? I donīt care if that guy was later going to sell the poster on ebay... thatīs fame and fans are part of the price to pay... donīt like it? Do not work on the film industry.

1. Cameron is a prick to work with. That's been doc*mented many times.

2. His movies are hugely successful.

3. I won't judge the guy because I'm not walking in his shoes and can't even imagine the stress this man (or someone else in his position) may be under. He could have just been tired... plain and simple. What... NONE of your have ever snapped at another person for little/no reason?

4. TMZ and staging sh*t. That will hurt them in the long run. The like of Robert Downey Jr. doesn't say 1 word to their camera, suspecting he may be getting punked.

5. No one is 'overpaid.' Whoever decides that certain people are worth certain amounts of money pay them that... so, that's what they're worth. If you're getting paid $10. an hour... that's what you're worth, because you accepted that job at that pay. The Director of 2012 will make $100mil. for his efforts. I guess someone thought he was worth that much money. I'd take it were it offered to me (and so would you).

6. IBlowBatman is a loser.

7. Happy New Year all (except IBlowBatman)! Go make a f*cking pizza.

James Cameron was an *sshole. This is a very good example of how a celebrity can handle a simple situation poorly and turn it into an awkward moment and a regretful incident.

Makes no sense saying the situation was a set-up, because that's like saying the supposed fan knew beforehand how Cameron would react. As far as he knew, from what I could gather from the scene, he thought he'd get the autograph and the whole thing would end there. He only got upset when Cameron was unpleasant to him. The guy initially asked Cameron for the autograph in a polite manner.
And the camera wasn't a part of the set-up, like some said. It was there to doc*ment the moment when Cameron would sign the poster.

Even if the purpose of the request was to sell the poster after, I don't see any problem in that. That just means his work was worth a lot to some people and he should actually feel good about helping the guy out.

The guy went through the trouble of getting autographs from all the main actors in the movie so the poster would have some value to the fan who would buy it.
All Cameron had to do was to give that poor old devil two seconds of his time to make his day. Instead, he decided to be a d*ck about it.

He sure as hell didn't owe the guy an autograph, but owing it or not that was never in question. The question is whether he was am *sshole or not, and he sure acted as one.

Cameron had the right to tell the guy to bug off, to insult him and whatnot, but the choice of whether going about the whole thing in that way, or just signing the poster and keep walking, is what he can be "judged" by.

One last thing, Cameron isn't exactly one the Jonas Brothers. He doesn't have constantly 500 fans chasing him around for autographs. Dispensing the occasional autograph shouldn't be such a dreadful thing to do for a man in his position.

@nriq: I didn't comment on the incident because I still believe we didn't see the whole picture and that was someone from TMZ trying to piss Cameron off. Was Cameron a little over the top in insulting the guy? Yes, he was. He could still be quiet and not signing the poster, just to stay firm with his decission. Yeah, the "shut up" thing wasn't needed, sorry about that. I wasn't having a nice day and I was tired of reading the same thing about Cameron not working since "Titanic". Thanks, you have a nice day, too. Clearly Cameron didn't have one. ;P

Are you all serious? Are you all actually being serious with these comments you are making? James Cameron has provided us with the movie of a life time which we all love. He has given us this and we should all be very thankful for it. HE DOESN'T HAVE TO SIGN ANYTHING. And this guy waiting for him is NOT a fan he is just a low life TRYING TO EARN SOME DOSH. He is either working for TMZ (bunch of low lifes) or he is jealous at camerons success because the guy is obviously unsuccessful and feeds of embarresing people that are clearly better at everything than him. Cameron had every right to treat him the way he did. Anyone else would have most likely hit him for being a PERSISTENT IGNORANT MEDIA SEARCHING PRICK. You lot really have to think about what your saying. One person said he 'was' their here....well why isn't he now? Because he stuck up for himself? Really man grow up and see the world you live in.

Actually, he didn't technically didn't "give" anything. People had to pay for it, and he made millions. It would be different if he actually did give away tickets for the movie. Anyway, I don't really care, personally. I didn't see Avatar, have no interest in seeing it, or who Cameron is or whatever.
