Jason Bateman angered Apple fans in Los Angeles today, by jumping to the front of a long line of people waiting to get their hands on a new iPhone.

Bateman was among an estimated 2,000 people who had lined up outside the Apple store at The Grove shopping mall, eager to get their hands on the new iPhone 4.

But his celebrity status won him special treatment when an Apple employee noticed him in the line and allowed him to cut to the front.

Bateman walked straight into the shop to make his purchase, to the jeers and boos of everyone else in line.
