One A-list actor just couldn’t keep his cool recently.
This week, Will Smith made headlines for slapping a kiss-happy reporter. In one of the most popular viral videos this week, a reporter got too close for comfort to Men In Black star and was swatted away.
“At the Moscow premiere of Men in Black 3 a reporter showed Will a little TOO MUCH love and tried to kiss him on the lips!”reads the YouTube video caption.
“Will was not having it and SLAPPED the overzealous reporter right in the face! It was only a split second of anger, then in true movie star fashion Will went on to the next outlet and was his fun bubbly self again!”
The video shows reporter Vitalii Sediuk from Ukrainian television channel 1+1, hugging and kissing Smith on both cheeks and trying for the lips, according to Smith.
“Come on man, what the hell is your problem buddy,” Smith said after pushing him off and slapping him in the face. “He tried to kiss me on my mouth,” he said before admitting that the reporter was lucky he didn’t sucker punch him.
“Oh I said that on camera. It’s all good,” he added.
According to the Associated Press, this isn’t the first time the reporter made headlines. At the Venice Film Festival in September he famously gave Madonna purple hydrangeas, which she later insulted.
“I absolutely loathe hydrangeas,” Madonna said to a person seated next to her as she placed them under the table. The only problem with her statement was that she had a microphone nearby that caught it for the world to hear.
Madge later played up the incident in a short film in which she apologized about the insult but said she still hates hydrangeas, according to reports.
