Oscar winner Sean Penn is famous for his short fuse — especially when paparazzi get in his face snapping photos. But the crowd in the lobby bar at San Francisco’s posh St.Regis Hotel were stunned earlier this week, when the actor went after a fan merely taking a cell phone shot of Penn, who had just finished addressing a corporate sales event.

TMZ captured the whole ruckus, including Penn screaming “I’ll make you eat the phone. … Get the [expletive] out of here!”

While the actor approached St. Regis management to complain, the hotel folks actually turned the tables — asking the man if he wanted the police to be called and press charges, since Penn had grabbed his phone and slammed it to the ground.

Ironically, the guy had attended the sales event — where the Academy Award winner no doubt was paid big bucks to speak — and was still wearing his name tag!

†Note to Sean Penn: When you are in a public place, you really can’t claim privacy from fans taking photos. It’s not like the guy was an obnoxious paparazzo looking for an embarrassing “Gotchya!” shot.
