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.

weeeell - i did not see him actually try to kiss will on the mouth...looked like a typical european cheek to cheek thing to me. a bit presumptuous on the reporters part - but, maybe a bit of an over the top response no will's part. eh - i'm really not quite sure what the hell happened here. i dunno if the guy deserved the slap or not! ha

That's awsome, I LOVE Will Smith even more now! Who cares if he supports gay marriage, obviously he's not gay! He doesn't have to tolerate anyone doing that to him!

looked like to me he was trying to kiss both cheeks. will's a moron who should be culture by now. geeezz. and should never assault someone for something he absolutely overreacted to. I know bc I met someone her in the states who had returned from abroad and did that to me and i was caught off guard. but i didnt hit the person. will's boring and always has been.

You can tell that Will was being friendly at first, giving the guy a peck on each cheek as is the european custom (I'm european), but the reporter was definitely trying to get something more. He is lucky that will is a great guy and took it better than most by checking him. Most men would punch dead in his face. Don't eve try and go down the homophobic route because clearly the reporter was doing way to much.

Why make this about pro gay or anti gay. Smith had a right to react that way. This was a very personal invasion of his space. He did not give consent. Germs! Gross! That reporter could have exposed smith and his family to colds, flu or any number of diseases. Not acceptable behavior. Smith should have punched the reporter and the reporter should find a new schtick?
