Here come the Men in SMACK!

Will Smith has always had an energetic and playful relationship with the media — that was until “the kisses.”

Smith, in Moscow for the premiere of Sony’s “Men in Black 3,” was caught on tape slapping Ukranian reporter Vitalii Sediuk Friday, after Sediuk got a little too close for Smith’s liking.

In the video below, the reporter can be seen bestowing a kiss on each of Smith’s cheeks, a European custom, causing Smith to exclaim “What the hell is wrong with you man?” before slightly backhanding the reporter in the face.

According to TMZ sources, Smith became so upset because the journo’s lips apparently grazed the actor’s.
