It was good thing Will Smith isn’t promoting Ali or one journalist may be a little sore right now.

The actor was walking the red carpet for the Moscow premiere of Men in Black 3 when a TV reporter kissed him on one side of the face and then the other, a TMZ video shows.

“What the hell is your problem?” says Smith, who then pushes and slaps at the amorous journalist.

Smith laughs about it and tells another reporter down the line, “He tried to kiss me on the mouth. He’s lucky I didn’t try to sucker punch him. … Sorry, I said that on camera.”
