Cavalier actor Will Smith jumped to the aide of a nervous journalist quizzing Angelina Jolie about her love life at the CANNES FILM FESTIVAL - by asking her if she slept with her co-stars.

The reporter was probing the Tomb Raider beauty about her relationship with actor Brad Pitt at the French bash to no avail.

But Smith - who is in Cannes to promoting his new animated movie THE SHARK'S TALE, which also stars Jolie, came to the reporter's rescue.

He interjected: "Have you slept with any of your co-stars? Spit it out, lady!"

Needless to say, JOLIE did not answer the question.
