Will Smith Shows Basic Emotions
You may or may not have heard of actor Will Smith backhanding a reporter this past weekend at the Men in Black 3 premier in Moscow, Russia.
Smith was clearly caught off guard when a Ukranian reporter tried to kiss him while wrapping his arm around his neck. He shoved the reporter off of him and gave him a backhand slap on the check.
Take a look the video below and try to decipher Smith’s emotions. What is interesting is also the reaction of the other people around him, including the woman with the leopard printed scarf around her neck and the blond woman behind him.
Remember that emotions are immediate, automatic, unconscious reactions to events that are important to one’s welfare. They are transient and fleeting.
