How About a Kiss for Will Smith?

Will Smith is an excellent kisser. Don't believe us? Just ask him. At the premiere for his new romantic comedy Hitch, held on New York's Ellis Island, Smith asked leading lady Eva Mendes what it was like to smooch him. "It was the most amazing onscreen kiss I ever had," she told the crowd deliberately and automatically. Smith then turned to costar Kevin James and asked the same question, to which the King of Queens star replied, "It was the most amazing onscreen kiss I ever had." "Cuz I got the fire in the lips!" Smith shouted. "That's how I break them down. Watch!" He then smooched a guest sitting in the front row to prove his point. Also at the party: Jada Pinkett Smith, Russell Simmons, Missy Elliott, Amber Valletta, Nick Cannon, Tatyana Ali, America's Next Top Model winner Eva Pigford and director Andy Tennant. Smith treated the group to a reunion with his former partner DJ Jazzy Jeff, who spun while Smith performed hits including "Getting Jiggy Wit It."
