Will Smith Slaps Smoochy Reporter in Moscow
As he tended to media duties ahead of the Moscow premiere of his new movie "Men In Black III", Will Smith made it clear that he's not one for kisses when it comes to greetings from guys.
The 43-year-old actor was at the Ritz Carlton in the Russian capital city when a Ukrainian reporter dove in to plant a smooch on Smith's face - which ended up being a mistake that the young man won't be forgetting anytime soon.
After first asking for a hug from the former "Fresh Prince" star, who kindly obliged, the journalist attempted to take things further with a liplock - with a startled Will saying, "What the hell is your problem?"
Reprimanding the reporter with a backhanded slap across the face, Will talked about the incident with other press members moments later, telling, "He tried to kiss me on the mouth. He's lucky I didn't try to sucker punch him. ... Sorry, I said that on camera."
Apparently, the Ukrainian media man is known for his penchant to kiss celebrities, with the Smith smooch attempt coming after Will recently voiced his support for gay marriages.
