CELEBRITY Bill Murray
Looks like Bill Murray lost his chill while on vacation in Martha's Vineyard. The famed actor was eating at a local restaurant when he mistook photographer Peter Simon for a paparazzi, and violently attacked him.
Speaking to Showbiz411, Simon (the brother of Carly Simon) said that he grew up on the Vineyard and is always around taking person-on-the-street style photos. When he snapped a picture of Murray, the actor in turn snapped at him.
“He came up and shoved me,” Simon recalled. After the physical confrontation, Simon asked Murray, “Do you know I am?” To which Murray replied, “No. Do you know who I am?” When Simon said he didn’t, Murray said, “Well, you should.” Then Murray doused with him and his camera with a glass of water, according to reports.
“It was humiliating,” Simon said of the ordeal. “I’m like the peace and love person.”
Ironically, Simon has just released a book of photos from his time at the vacation destination, titled, 'Martha’s Vineyard: To Everything There is a Season.'
