A scruffily-dressed ETHAN HAWKE was left bemused when a newsagent ordered him to replace a magazine he had been reading for 20 minutes.
But instead of arguing with the LOS ANGELES, California, businessman, the HAMLET actor simply explained himself. He said, "But this is my wife on the cover, and I'm reading an article about her," before showing the stunned man a spread on actress UMA THURMAN. He continued, "What's more, I'll buy every copy you have." Ethan left with more than 30 magazines. (RGS/TS/PDD)
