Mcconaughey Supports Surfers

MATTHEW MCCONAUGHEY has spoken out in defence of the Californian surfers accused of attacking a group of paparazzi while they pursued the actor for a picture.
Two men, Skylar Peak and Philip Hildebrand, are facing charges of misdemeanour battery after allegedly confronting the snappers, who were attempting to photograph MCConaughey on a Malibu beach in June (08).
The surfers allegedly threw one paparazzo into the water as he tried to shoot pictures and another photographer claims he was attacked and his camera was thrown into the ocean by the accused.
And now MCConaughey has broken his silence about the incident, admitting he can understand why the men reacted the way they did - but he insists he really isn't bothered by the paparazzi who follow him to the beach.
He says, "That was just a community thing where they felt like there was a little peace disturbance. When I'm surfing I try not to think about (the photographers). They are just capturing a picture. I guess if they start getting on rafts and coming out there in the water, then we'd be in a different position."
Both Peak and Hildebrand have pleaded not guilty to the charges. A pre-trial hearing has been set for 14 January (09).
