Galaxy S3 - app crashes when i try to copy text. Anyone else had same problems?

I have the international version of SGS3 and lately i've noticed a weird problem. Whenever i try to copy some text, the phone becomes unresponsive for a couple of seconds and then the app crashes. 100% reproducible in Chrome, Gmail, Pocket, probably everywhere else too.

What i mean is when i tap and hold a word, the menu with copy, select all etc appears but when i tap on 'copy' the app crashes.

Has anyone else had similar problems? Am i holding it wrong?
