Movie star RYAN O'NEAL stormed out of an TV interview on ACCESS HOLLYWOOD - after being "ambushed" by interviewer Shaun Robinson.

O'Neal was at a promotional junket for current movie MALIBU'S MOST WANTED when he was asked by Robinson whether he would watch parts of a previous interview with his daughter TATUM.

An Access Hollywood representative tells PAGESIX.COM, "After Robinson asked him twice, Ryan said, 'OK - what did Tatum say?'"

The clip featured Tatum saying she was not talking to her Love Story father, and "he was hard-core raising us."

O'Neal reportedly then told Robinson, "I don't think I want to do this,' and walked out very dignified."

However, other reports claimed O'Neal stormed out of the interview, and refused to do any further interviews that day.
