HOLLYWOOD actress Charlize Theron was shocked to get slapped by Will Smith on the set of new movie Hancock â€“â€“ as he was only supposed to pretend to hit her.
The pair star in the forthcoming superhero film and one scene required Smith to raise his hand to Theron and despite practicing a “fake slap”, the actor smacked her across the face for real.
And Theron insists it really did happen â€“â€“ despite denials from Smith.
She says, “He tried to fake slap me one time, but the fake one just didnâ€™t happen. Weâ€™re still debating this one. I think he just hit me!
“But Will claims I leaned into his hand and thatâ€™s how it happened. I was so shocked! I was like, â€˜He just slapped me!â€™
“But he said, â€˜I did not slap you. I had my hand there and you turned into it.â€™”
But Theron insists the incident didnâ€™t sour their relationship, she adds, “Weâ€™re just like kids, itâ€™s so much fun. Heâ€™s not a woman beater!”â€“â€“Showbizspy.com
