Jake Gyllenhaal in SXSW bathroom fight with photo-happy fan [Poll]

Jake-gyllenhaal-bathroom-fight-sxsw This post has been corrected. See the note below for details.

Jake Gyllenhaal has had his fair share of action films, but everyone is vulnerable when using the bathroom -- as he unfortunately learned over the weekend at the SXSW Film Festival in Austin, Texas.

At SXSW to premiere his new flick "Source Code," Gyllenhaal got into a scuffle Friday after a fan in the bathroom tried to photograph him -- while, um, he was using the bathroom.

"That's true," Gyllenhaal confirmed when asked about the incident. "I think it's an appropriate space to keep privacy. I hope that people wouldn't disagree with me on that."

We certainly agree -- a violation like that is all kinds of wrong. Good news: The photo-snapping fan agreed to delete the picture of Gyllenhaal in his indisposed state.

Weigh in on the poll below.

For the record, 9:35 a.m. March 18: This post has been updated to correctly give a positive answer to a double-negative question. Where it once said, "We certainly do," it now says, "We certainly agree." Which is what we meant. Thx to commenter @Matt for the nudge.
