Just caught this trailer for the new documentary Sellebrity last night at a screening of Holy Motors at USC. Seems pretty timely, what with the recent death of paparazzo Chris Guerra, who was struck by an SUV while shooting Justin Bieber, as well as the proposed legal changes to celebrity photography still being bandied about here in Los Angeles in the wake of Guerra’s death.

When he’s not rubbing elbows (allegedly, not allegedly, those two need to come up with a story and stick to it) with Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, Charlie Sheen continues to prove he has a heart of gold.
The actor cut a check for $12,000 to pay for the funeral services of 29-year-old paparazzo photographer Chris Guerra, who was killed New Year’s Day in a tragic accident while chasing after what he thought was pop singer Justin Bieber.
“A tragic incident like this erases the line between the photographer and the subject,” Sheen told TMZ. “It’s an unforgiving moment that begs us all to be human and work as one to prevent this in the future. As parents, we are all not supposed to bury our children. My deepest condolences to the families involved.”
I didn’t exactly hear Bieber wanting to help Guerra’s family out. Total class act move by Sheen.
