Reporter Gets Slapped After Trying to Kiss Will Smith on the Lips

"He's lucky I didn't sucker punch him."

Will Smith received a rather unpleasant surprise today while on the Red Carpet at the Moscow Premiere of "Men in Black 3." Apparently, press customs in Eastern Europe are different, and one male Ukrainian reporter whose shtick it is to kiss celebrities thought it would be a good idea to try to lay one on Smith. Conflict ensued:

As you can plainly see, the Ukrainian got off light. Smith says near the end, "He's lucky I didn't sucker punch him."

TMZ gives this post-script to the bizarre incident:

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.
