Will Smith Defends Slapping Red Carpet Reporter
Actor speaks out about slapping male reporter who tried to kiss him...
The Hollywood actor, who was being interviewed on last night’s US Late Show with David Letterman, revealed why he had slapped Ukrainian reporter Vitalii Sediuk.
Defending his actions, Smith, 43, explained: "I didn't beat up a guy! We're doing an interview and he says, 'I'm your biggest fan, can I have a hug?' So I go to give this joker a hug, and he tries to lean in and kiss me! It's just awkward.
"They were saying, 'We're sorry, that's just his schtick'. Well that's why his ass got schtuck."
Earlier this week, we told you how the actor had said he believed aliens could exist and wouldn't be surprised if Lady Gaga turned out to be from another planet.
