Colin Farrell in angry confrontation with paparazzi

Irish actor Colin Farrell was involved in an angry confrontation with a group of paparazzi at the premiere of his latest film Triage in Toronto.

The Hollywood bad boy reacted angrily when photographers asked Farrell if his sister could leave the red carpet to get a shot of the Dublin born actor on his own.

The Miami Vice actor confronted one individual photographer while hurling abuse at the celebrity snapper who repeatedly called for the actor's entourage to "get off the carpet".

London-based photographer Joe Alvarez who was in the press pack spoke to reporters about the incident afterward: "With celebs you get a lot of hangers-on, PRs, everyone and their wives surrounding the stars and we are limited for space."

"I was just saying, 'please can everyone clear the carpet, move on'. He took it personal. He said, 'Do not shout at my sister like that, do not ever speak to my sister like that ever'."
