Adrian Pasdar was so angered when a stranger made a rude remark about his Dixie Chicks star wife Natalie Maines, he knocked the man to the ground. The Heroes actor was wearing a 'Free Natalie Maines' T-shirt, in the aftermath of the singer's anti-war comments in 2003, when the incident occurred in a supermarket. Pasdar says, "This big guy said, 'F**k your wife,' as he passed me, and I couldn't help myself. I pushed him back into a rack of Tootsie Rolls, and he fell down. "I'm not proud of that, but I'd do it again in a minute. There's a real hurt when you see somebody getting so attacked by the media so viciously for something that was so innocuous initially. It destroyed their career for a while. "With Nat, it was just one of those things where you reconvene every night and support each other. It was difficult. We went through arguments about it. I can't say it was one big love fest. There were some differences of opinion on how to handle what happened." Maines prompted a barrage of death threats when she told a London audience she was ashamed to come from the same state - Texas - as U.S. President George W. Bush.
