Did Will Smith Taint His Image By Slapping Reporter?


Who could have guessed that Will Smith would backhand a reporter?

According to TMZ, during red carpet interviews at the Moscow premiere of Men In Black 3, the adored actor reacted violently to a reporter brushing his mouth against Smith’s. No word on if the semi-smooch was a purposeful joke or an accidental peck, but Will didn’t hesitate to stand his ground. He shoved the reporter than smacked the embarrassed man across the face.

Smith is viewed as the lovable, funny guy and serious actor who has made us shed a tear. Outside of the silver screen, he’s a hands-on father of three and stand-up husband–definitely a respected character.

Will this change all of that? Do you think the incident will change audiences’ perspective on the Hitch star?
