Brad Pitt: Jovially speaks against Will Smith's slapping male reporter for lip kiss
talented Hollywood hunk Brad Pitt has joked about Will Smith slapping a reporter who kissed him on the lips (check out the video below).
Will Smith struck Ukrainian reporter Vitalii Sediuk at Moscow's Men in Black 3 premiere last week when the journalist reached in to embrace Smith.
The 'MIB 3' star defended his behavior on The Late Show with David Letterman on Tuesday by saying Sediuk crossed the line with his antics.
Brad Pitt was asked how he would have responded to a similar incident during a Cannes Film Festival news conference.
"I stay away from the entertainment gossip. I don't want to slap anyone," Pitt quipped. "Why would that happen? I would never want to hurt anyone."
The reporter from Ukraine, Sediuk has apologized for attempting to kiss Smith, telling HipHollywood that he was simply overcome with "a splash of emotion".
The film 'Men in Black 3' opens on Friday in US and UK cinemas.
