Will Smith

ATTACKS Kissy Reporter

5/18/2012 12:23 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

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 don't care who you are, this is absolutely unacceptable. It does't matter than it's a man, either. It's simply not ok to invade someone's personal space like that and try to plant a kiss on them. I'd have slapped him, too!

Funny because Will Smith just came out for Gay Marriage in "The Advocate" last week. It's obvious he wants nothing to do with that s---.

Not really a Will Smith fan but that guy went too far. You can clearly see it's a forceful situation. Light kisses on the cheek, ok but that, that's not necessary.

Harvey, Charles, or even Max, whomever reads this, I have to side with Will S. on this one. What the reporter did was out of line. A hug is one thing, but he friggin tried to make out with Will.

Good for Will, would have done the same thing. Just waiting for the Gay Mafia to brand him a homophobe so he can give interviews about how he loves gay people. Coming to a new stand or TMZ very soon!

The reporter, whether it was his schtick or not, deserved the slap... and where the heck were the celebrity security?? I don't buy the "this guy was just being affectionate"... he was doing this for his own celebrity back at home and to provoke a reaction. He definitely is in the wrong for invading on personal space and what makes him think he has the right to do this to anyone? What an ***hole!

No one should force a kiss on the mouth to anyone. Its rude. Will was obviously trying his best to dodge the kiss and the reporter was just trying to get publicity, just because its his "thing" does not mean its okay. Also it doesn't mean you're homophobic because you don't allow a stranger to kiss your mouth.
