"Sopranos" star James Gandolfini launched a violent attack on a fan at a New York airport after he was approached for an autograph.
The 46-year-old became enraged when the man, brandishing a notepad and pen, came too close to the actor's fiance, Deborah Lin, and Gandolfini hit out, grabbing him by the collar and punching him in the face.
The altercation -- captured on camera -- took place as the couple passed through JFK airport on their way back from the Screen Actor's Guild Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday, where Gandolfini picked up the Best Actor gong for his role in the hit TV series.
But the actor soon calmed down, and before leaving he apologized to the fan, taking time to sign the autograph and pose for a picture, according to the New York Daily News.
