Spielberg Fined in Italy for Disturbing Beachgoers with Boat

Photodisc/Thinkstock(LA MADDALENA, Italy) -- A boat ride off the coast of Italy cost Steven Spielberg a couple of hundred dollars. Us Weekly reports that the director was joined by Gwyneth Paltrow on a speedboat in La Maddalena on July 11 when people on the nearby beach complained to police and the coast guard that the boat was too close to shore and making too much noise. Though he apologized to the coast guard, Spielberg was fined 172 euros, or about 247 U.S. dollars.
