Will Smith slaps reporter (Video)
If you’re a dude, try not to kiss Will Smith … on the mouth … or you might get slapped!
The Hollywood hunk gave a backhanded slap to male reporter and professional prankster Vitalii Sediuk when the Ukrainian decided to squeeze in a kiss during their friendly embrace on the red carpet of the Men in Black 3 premier in Moscow.
The 43-year-old actor managed to dodge the incoming smooch and pushed the reporter away and gave him a smack on the face. Sediuk is known for his love of kissing celebrities when they least expect it.
TMZ has a video of the incident, which showed the star somewhat miffed but kept it together when asking Sediuk, “What the hell is your problem, buddy?”
The Fresh Price of Bel Air star laughed it off telling another reporter down the line: “Sorry. He tried to kiss me on the mouth.”
"The joker is lucky I didn't sucker punch him," he quipped.
"Oh, sorry, I said that on camera.
“But no, no. It’s all good,” said the star trying to diffuse the situation.
The incident follows just days after Smith said he agrees with President Obama's support of gay marriage.
"If anybody can find someone to love them and to help them through this difficult thing that we call life, I support that in any shape or form," he told reporters in Berlin on Monday.
