GRIN AND BEAR IT Paps target Ratner
Note to TMZ: You're killing Brett Ratner's love life. At the Tribeca Film Festival premiere for The Grand on Friday, the X-Men director shared his disdain for the paparazzi with Radar. Let it all out, Brett. Let it all out.
"I've had so many bad experiences with the paparazzi. But I really don't like the videos.... I don't like TMZ; I can't have multiple girlfriends when I'm on TMZ. They say you're out to dinner with one girl when maybe it's innocent. They'll come up and say, 'That girl walking behind you is with you,' and I'm like, 'What are
you talking about?'"
So how does the Rat shake the most annoying of lensmen? "I give them money to leave me alone. Not much, though, because they're desperate. They'll take whatever they can get," Ratner said, laughing.
He had no trouble securing arm candy for the premiere, though, despite the presence of multiple cameras. As Ratner walked into the movie, a nearby photog who had overheard Radar's interview pointed at the director's buxom date following him down the carpet and remarked, "It looks like he's doing just fine to me."
