Will Smith Talks Reporter Kiss and Slap on Letterman
During a recent appearance on “The Late Show With David Letterman,” Will Smith addressed an incident that occurred at the Moscow premier of Men In Black III when a Ukrainian Reporter attempted to kiss him.
After the reporter, Vitalii Sediuk, got too close for comfort, Smith slapped him in the face and moved along with his interviews.
Despite Will Smith’s recent advocacy of same-sex marriage, he described the incident as “awkward.” From where I’m sitting, it looks like a simple kiss on the cheek, not a full-blown make out session. I wonder what Big Willy’s reaction would be if a female reporter tried the same move?
Do you think Will behaved appropriately? No matter what, was the backhand slap really necessary?
