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.

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

This is totally and completely irrelevant. It doesn't matter if a man OR woman had done this, it's still inappropriate and rude.

What the hell does that have to do with anything? What, because he supports gay marriage some people going to expect him to allow homosexual activity to be bestowed upon him?
Not to mention the fact that it's just plain invasion of personal space... from a complete stranger at that.

The old fashion Russian greeting doesn't include a kiss on the lips. This was a gay display meant to be outrageous by crossing limits of social behavior. Part of the gay appeal of doing this is that it challenges straight males and they have reactions that make a good show. And that's what they got.

Imagine (?) what would happen to someone if they tried to kiss Putin.
