2003: Golden Globe Awards

This Jan. 19, 2003 file photo shows actor Gene Hackman at the 60th Annual Golden Globe Awards in Beverly Hills, Calif. A New Mexico police report says Gene Hackman had given clothes, money and rides to a homeless man he slapped this week after the man became aggressive toward the Oscar-winning actor and his wife. The Santa Fe New Mexican reports Hackman and his wife told officers they had helped 63-year-old Bruce Becker for several years. The Santa Fe police report says Hackman rebuffed Becker when he approached them Tuesday, Oct. 30, 2012, and told him to get a job. Police say Hackman acted in self-defense and no charges have been filed. (AP Photo/Mark J. Terrill, file)
