Jessica Biel launched a tirade of abuse at paparazzi yesterday (24.10.07).

The 25-year-old actress was in no mood to have her picture taken when she left a Santa Monica yoga studio, and began screaming at the waiting photographers.

She shouted at them to “not to get close” and “to get a real job”.

The Illusionist star even reportedly tried to hit one snapper with her umbrella – in a move reminiscent of troubled singer Britney Spears’ umbrella attack on a photographer’s car in February this year.

It seems Jessica has been taking a few tips from boyfriend Justin Timberlake who has had his own run-ins with photographers in the past.

In September, the Sexy/Back singer lashed out at a paparazzo who tried to take a picture of Jessica as they arrived at a Beverly Hills hotel.

Justin also got into an altercation with another photographer when he jumped out at him and his then girlfriend Cameron Diaz outside Los Angeles’ Chateau Marmont hotel in November 2004.
