Riled up Jude Law has lost his cool with the paparazzi again after he was pictured 'accidentally' slapping a female photographer in the face in the early hours of this morning.
Moody Jude allegedly lashed out at the woman, who appeared to get in his path as he left The Automat bar in Mayfair at 12.30am.
Fuming Jude is pictured seemingly swinging his arm out at the paparazzo, with other pictures showing his hand pushing the back of her head.
The 28-year-old woman is then pictured holding her face and apparently wincing in pain.
The alleged bust-up kicked off after the actor let his hair down in the same venue as Hollywood star Leonardo DiCaprio following his latest performance in Hamlet at the Wyndham Theater.
But a spokesperson for the star, 36, has been quick to defend the actor's action.
A spokeswoman said: 'This is all nonsense. Last night's incident was an accident.'
'Jude was blinded by the camera flashes when he left the restaurant, raised his hand to shield himself and inadvertently struck somebody standing very close. He apologised and left. Pictures of this sort can often be misleading.
The actor's meltdown is not his first paparazzi-related incident. He was arrested two years ago for allegedly attacking a photographer near his home.
Today, Jude's latest 'victim' was quick to speak out and defend herself after the street tussle.
The photographer claimed: 'He hit me full on the face, it was a real stinger, it was very sore.'
The actor's outburst comes after recent pictures have shown him glum under the strain of droves of autograph hunters outside his theater each night.
