Anthony Mackie Got Punched In The Face By Will Smith

Anthony Mackie has spoken out about the time Will Smith punched him in the face. Yes, that's right. Punched him in the face... by accident.

Mackie, who plays Sam Wilson/Falcon in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, recalled the funny story during an interview on The Jess Cagle show where he was promoting his new film Outside the Wire.

"So, it was his 50th birthday. And my publicist called me and she's like, 'yo Will Smith is having a birthday party in Budapest. Do you want to present his birthday cake to him?'

"So, I'm like, 'Holy s*** yes. It's Will Smith. Of course.'

"So, we're all on stage. Will Smith does like a whole concert I'm on stage with Will Smith doing a concert. I'm losing my mind. Right?

"So, the cake comes out, we bring the cake out, Will Smith sees me and he goes, 'Hey, Anthony Mackie.' I'm like, Will Smith knows my name. Right? So, I go to like high five.
