Quinton Aaron, the star of The Blind Side, was kicked off a flight on Friday for being too big.

The 6-foot 8-inch actor weighs about 500 pounds and tells TMZ that he usually purchases two tickets for air travel.

But there was just one seat available on his U.S. Airways flight from Philadelphia to Rochester, and the passenger next to him was unable to fit.

A flight attendant asked Aaron to exit the plane, and he was subsequently booked on a different flight that had two seats available.

Compared to some other celebrity plane misadventures, it sounds like things were handled politely and without incident.
