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.

Something tell me Will has kissed a few men in his day! The man is John Travolta GAY folks, deal with it!

# 4

being “gay” is not bad thing. then get over with it , will.

# 5

He’s had practice so should be comfortable with it

# 6

Smith always , YES ALWAYS, has been ugly person. What does he think does he is? He never been a nice person. I hope the people see this and compare with another actors how nice are them.

@Hamed: Did he say that “being gay is a bad thing”? Stop putting words in the man’s mouth, he didn’t want to be sexually assaulted, deal with it.
It doesn’t make him a homophobe or “anti gay”. How would you like it if some stranger tried to kiss you? Not everyone is into being sexually assaulted and it has nothing to do with ones sexuality so stop being a prick.

He didn’t try to kiss you on the lips, he was trying to kiss your other cheek. It is a custom in many, many countries, ignorant. And yeah, you hit him.

I’m sure Will Smith slipped him his room key.

@Liza: Someone violates his personal space and he instinctively pushes him away and that makes him a bad and terrible person? Get the FK over yourself you psycho!

@dayla: no he slapped him too after he pushed him. that was unnecessary.
