Will Smith: Kissing Reporter Incident Was 'Awkward'

Will Smith and Josh Brolin attend a photo call for Men in Black 3 on Wednesday (May 23) in New York City.

The co-stars, along with director Barry Sonnenfeld, posed with members of the U.S. Navy at the start of Fleet Week.

The day before, Will, 43, appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman where he explained why he slapped a male reporter who tried to kiss him on the lips.

“I didn’t beat up a guy! No, no. I was in Moscow and … we’re doing an interview and he he says, ‘I’m your biggest fan, can I have a hug, please?’ So I go to give this joker a hug and he tries to lean in to kiss me, you know? And … it’s just awkward, Dave,” he said. “They were [like] ‘We’re sorry, you know, it’s just his shtick.’ and I said, ‘That’s why his ass got shtuck.’”

FYI: Josh wore an Ermenegildo Zegna suit.
