In case you hadn’t heard, Will Smith was on the red carpet promoting his new movie “Men In Black 3” when a Ukranian reporter decided to land a kiss. Will acted with his reflexes and slapped the bejesus out of the guy. Basically, that became the slap heard around the world.
Now, Brad Pitt is discussing SlapGate, likely in promotion of his new movie “Killing Them Softly”. Will talked about the incident to David Letterman, telling the talk show host that the journalist crossed the line.
Brad said, “I stay away from the entertainment gossip. I don’t want to slap anyone. Why would that happen? I would never want to hurt anyone.”
The journalist has since apologized for the incident, but commented that he had a “splash of emotion.”
Is Brad just using the incident to help his movie at Cannes? You know, all publicity is good publicity, right?
