Do stars have a right to flip out when they think photogs are taking too many photos of themselves and their girlfriends?

Alexander Skarsgard, is a very protective boyfriend! The True Blood star was spotted at the Coachella Music Festival Apr. 17 with his girlfriend Kate Bosworth and the two seemed all smiles during the day — Kate even took a ride on his shoulders! But when the paparazzi got a little too close he freaked out and almost decked a photographer! Us Weekly reports Alexander became “angered” after a paparazzo kept taking shots of the couple — and a police officer had to restrain him!

The officer must have offered some words of wisdom because the actor composed himself and the situation was resolved.

Alexander isn’t the first celeb to get into a tizzy over wanting some personal space with his GF! This is very reminiscent of actor Sean Penn in the ’80s when he used to get upset at the paparazzi for following him and his ex-wife Madonna. Even Coldplay front man Chris Martin attacked a photographer after he and his wife Gwyneth Paltrow were snapped leaving New York’s Mount Sinai Hospital in Sept of 2009.

We definitely know what makes these guys tick … but should Alexander have gotten so upset? Tell us what you think!
