'I was an a--': Sam Worthington comes clean on restaurant brawl
It sounds like Sam's finally starting to confront his demons.

Sam Worthington's been keeping something of a low public profile after last year's bizarre altercation outside a restaurant in Atlanta, Georgia. Now, the Aussie star has taken full responsibility for the fray.

"I was a jerk. It was my fault," Worthington conceded in an interview with News Limited. "I've admitted it. I was a jerk, I was in the wrong. Move on. That's it."

Sam took a blast from a can of pepper spray during the incident, which reportedly saw the Avatar star threatening the door man of the Vortex bar and Grill while screaming "I'm a DEA agent! You f---ed up now!"

Turns out it was Sam who, um, messed up. When asked if he was boozing that night, Sam denied it. "No, I was an ass!"

It's a frank admission from the star, who has a record of being short-tempered. However, it hasn't slowed his career, with Sam cast in roles for upcoming surfing film Drift due May 2, as well as the next Avatar films from James Cameron.
