Will Smith Slaps Reporter
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 angry 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.
A source close to Will tells TMZ, the reporter's mouth brushed up against Will's and that's why the actor reacted so violently. Despite the incident, Will continued doing red carpet interviews. more on this story
