Does Sean Penn have anger issues?

Sean Penn unleashed his anger on a fan recently. The man had wanted a picture, but what he got instead was far more unpleasant.

Does Sean Penn have anger issues?

Sean Penn was apparently in a very bad mood earlier this week, because he screamed at a doting fan who tried to take a picture of him.

The Oscar-winning actor was at the St. Regis Hotel in San Francisco when a fan approached Penn and appeared to take a snapshot of the star, which severely upset him.

All the harassment from the paparazzi over the years has clearly been building up and the fan was unfortunate enough to bare the brunt of Penn's anger.

This is not the first time the Gangster Squad actor has shown his ugly side. It is well documented that Penn has a temper and a hatred for the paparazzi — much like Alec Baldwin.

Penn has previously been charged with domestic assault with a baseball bat on his ex-wife Madonna. He also had been sentenced to 300 hours of community service in 2010 after he allegedly kicked a photographer.

Before that incident, the actor chose violence again and served a 60-day prison sentence in 1987 for repeatedly punching a movie extra in the face. Ouch!

The past repeated itself when Penn screamed at his camera happy fan, "Do we look like f***ing zoo animals?"

Unluckily for the actor, the entire incident was captured on video, which TMZ managed to obtain, and it does not show the actor in a very pleasant light. His rant continued, "I'll make you eat the phone... Get the f*** out of here. Get out of here!"

This was followed by throwing the poor man's phone to the ground. We're guessing Penn has one less fan in the world now?
