Acting legend Omar Sharif lost his temper this morning and appeared to slap a woman Doha Tribeca Film Festival in Qatar.
The 79-year-old Oscar nominated actor seemed to get upset when the woman tried to take a picture with him.
The video does not show whether Sharif made contact with the woman, but the Lawrence of Arabia star definitely took a swipe at her.
After taking a swing, Sharif proceeded to berate the young woman in Arabic. After the actor was done yelling, he posed for a picture with the same woman.
Sharif has yet to comment on the incident and it is unknown just what the woman did to anger the actor.
After the incident, however, the woman appeared to be smiling as if nothing happened. Perhaps it was a nervous laughter, but the woman looked to be unharmed.
Immediately after the incident, a reporter at the event tweeted, “Omar Sharif just hit a woman. Very stupidly, in front of the camera.”
The Doctor Zhivago star attacked a cop in Paris in 2003 and plead no contest to misdemeanor battery in 2007 for assaulting a parking attendant in Beverly Hills.
Sharif has been semi-retired from acting since starring in 2009’s I Forgot to Tell You.
