It’ Saturday, and that means Woody Harrelson is in trouble for assaulting a photographer again, but this time, he has the best excuse ever.

Fresh off the set of his upcoming film Zombieland, Harrelson describes the encounter at a New York airport as follows.

“With my daughter at the airport I was startled by a paparazzo, who I quite understandably mistook for a zombie”

So you see, it was all just an unfortunate misunderstanding. Given the circumstances and Harrleson’s understandable nervousness about being attacked by the undead, the as yet unidentified photographer is pretty lucky that he didn’t get hit with and ax or other more traditional piece of anti-zombie armament.
