The Ukrainian reporter who tried to kiss Will Smith at the Moscow premiere of “Men in Black 3” last week just APOLOGIZED for the red carpet stunt — saying, “I”m sorry, Will. It was a splash of emotion.”
As we reported, the journalist in question — a guy named Vitalii Sediuk who”s known for kissing celebrities — tried to plant a wet one on Will Smith at the red carpet event, and Will responded by slapping him in the face.
Now, Sediuk tells Hip Hollywood, “I do apologize for my behavior … I think it was too much.”
Sediuk says, “Will Smith is a person who I deeply respect as an actor … When I met him in Moscow, I wanted to do something to impress him.”
“We have a Slavic tradition …” Sediuk continues. “I don”t kiss every man or women when I see them in the street … but that time I decided to do that.”
He adds, “Next time, if I meet him, I”ll just shake his hand.”
