Note to reporters everywhere; do not try and kiss a celebrity or you might end up getting slapped. That’s exactly what happened today in Moscow when one reporter got way too close for comfort with actor Will Smith. Smith, who was promoting his new film Men in Black 3. The A-list actor was videotaped on the red carpet greeting a male reporter who reached out to hug him. Things took a turn for the worse, however, when the overly anxious interviewer got a little too comfortable and went in for a kiss on Smith’s lips. “Hey man, what’s your problem?!” the actor asked, pushing him away. Smith then slapped him across the face. Moving on with his obviously shocked PR team, the actor then added, “He’s lucky I didn’t sucker punch him.”
Journalism 101 folks; don’t try and kiss the talent, even if it is Will Smith.
