Jason Bateman Gets Booed After Cutting Thousands in Line for iPhone

Considering the endless stream of paparazzi pictures of celebrities doing mundane things — Miley Cyrus eating tacos or John Mayer filling his gas tank — it can sometimes be easy to forget that, no matter what the magazine tells us, celebrities are in fact not just like us. Today, Jason Bateman turned up at a mall in L.A. and got in line for the coveted iPhone 4. However, within minutes, a store employee spotted him and brought him inside so he could get the phone before the roughly 2,000 people in line. As he made his way out of the store, Bateman was publicly booed, proving that even having starred in an extremely beloved television show does not exempt you from the wrath of angered Apple nerds.
