Will Smith Slaps Reporter in Moscow
Will Smith's nice guy reputation just took a big hit--er, slap.
At the Moscow premiere of Men in Black 3, TMZ's cameras rolled as a Ukrainian reporter got a little too close for the actor's comfort. Though Smith, 43, initially seemed open to reciprocating a journalist's friendly embrace, when the man attempted to kiss him on the lips, the actor recoiled, shoving the man back--and then slapping him on the face.
"What the hell is your problem, man?" Smith snarled, before smacking the bewildered journalist.
"He's lucky I didn't sucker-punch him," a visibly-angry Smith told onlookers afterwards. "Oh, sorry, I said that on camera."
According to TMZ, the man who attempted to kiss Will is an entertainment journalist known in Europe for the silly PDA he shows towards the celebrities he interviews.
After the awkward incident, the 7 Pounds star continued to make his way down the red carpet, answering questions and posing for photos.
