Will Smith slaps reporter














Smith told Letterman: "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."

The 43-year-old has been busy in recent weeks promoting Men in Black III, his first film since 2008's Seven Pounds.
