Will Smith

ATTACKS Kissy Reporter

Will Smith just slapped a Ukrainian reporter across the face at the Moscow premiere of "Men in Black 3" -- and it was all caught on tape.

The Ukrainian reporter tries to kiss Will on the lips on the red carpet and the actor angrily pushes him away and then backhands him across the face.

You can clearly see that Will is incredibly pissed that the guy showed overt affection toward him.

After Will slaps the guy, Will says, "He's lucky I didn't sucker punch him."

We're told the dude who kissed Will is a television reporter who often kisses celebrities -- it's his schtick.

For the record, Will just came out in support of gay marriage.

A source on scene tells TMZ, the reporter's mouth brushed up against Will's and that's why the actor reacted so violently. Despite the incident, Will stayed positive ... and happily continued to sign autographs for fans and do red carpet interviews.

I would've hit him, HARD. Good for you Will. Uninvited mouth kiss from a stranger is battery in my opinion.

That's sexual assault right there, that guy HUNG ON to Will not letting him go, I would have punched him in the face if that happened to me. Anyone who plays the homophobe card is a complete idiot. Go Will!!

The reporter may have been greeting him in a very European way, but I still think it was a bit much. Plus, greeting someone by giving them kisses on their cheeks is really only used if you know them well OR if it's towards a girl. I don't think the slap was very necessary, but I any man probably would've reacted the same way.

I don't blame him. it's not about Will being black, or that black males apparently don't like their space invaded, NO ONE does. End of story, quit making excuses for him being black. End of the day, he's a CELEBRITY, being in the business as long as he has paps and interviewers will try almost anything for some press. The guy is known for trying to kiss celebs in the mouth, but that's gross and honestly sexual assault to try and think your ENTITLED to that kind of contact with someone

Okay TMZ just because you support the rights of gay marriage doesn't mean you are gay and want some man kissing you on the lips. Will had every right to punch him upside the head. That guy is lucky it was just a slap.

I still remember when that Adrien Brody forced that kiss on Halle Berry. She should have slapped him. Women should look at Will Smith to see what to do with the surprise unwanted celebrity kisses.

A way-appropriate-REBUKE.


Measured-as-hell.


Wiping the smile - off the-SMIRKING-dude's-face.


-It's not okay to do anything you want -


At the expense of a celebrity.


Not a hard tap - but it got the job done.


Amazing Will Smith moved right on -


As if nothing happened.


Grace-under-fire.


Exhausted, and from the media blitz.

This is one way to make sure Will Smith doesn't get a spot in the new Obama life story, if a cheek to cheek kiss is so offensive to him, Will would definitely hate Obama's gay marriage thing.

Bodyguards should follow celebs around -


And with water cannons.


Cross the line -


And drench their a%^^.


This'll discourage all the Yucksters.

The only man that can kiss Will Smith is Jada Pinkett...
The guy is gayer than a Judy Garland singalong...
