Adrien Brody is being more careful who he kisses these days after he was tricked into smooching with an Australian journalist for a kiss and tell article.

The movie star, who hit the headlines with his OSCAR night kiss with HALLE BERRY back in 2002, insists he's not the type of guy who just goes around kissing girls and he was upset when one fan he pecked on the cheek turned out to be a reporter.

He says, "I was in a touristy area and a young girl came over to me and said, 'Are you Adrien Brody? Can I please have a quick kiss?' I said, 'No, I don't think so.'

"But she persisted... so I gave her a quick kiss on the cheek, and when I did, a guy popped out with a camera and took a picture. I was fooled by it, because I was trying to be generous and kind.

"It's a running gag, everyone wants to see me kissing some girl because of the Halle Berry thing."
