Will Smith doesn’t ‘ever’ want to revive Fresh Prince of Bel-Air
Will Smith doesn’t "ever" want to revive ‘Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’.
The 47-year-old actor, who portrayed a fictionalised version of himself in the classic 1990s sit-com, insists speculation the show is to return with him at the helm and as co-producer is untrue as he’ll only go back to the show when "hell freezes over".
Speaking to E! news about a possible comeback, he said: "I don’t think ever, like pretty close to when hell freezes over.
"Like we’re going to leave that one alone."
Will’s latest movie, ‘Suicide Squad’, sees him reunite with his ‘Focus’ co-star Margot Robbie and he recalled being unimpressed by the 26-year-old beauty when they first met – while she was annoyed by his tardiness.
Interviewing one another for E! News, Margot said: "When I first met you it was for the audition for ‘Focus’ and you were late. I’d come from Croatia and I remember being like ‘Why is he late? I should be late.’ "
Will retorted: "At least I was dressed for the interview. She walked into the audition and she had shoes like she’d walked through mud, shorts on, her hair wasn’t done, I was like ‘She doesn’t want this at all.’ "
But Margot insisted she had a good explanation for her unkempt appearance.
She said: "I’d lost my luggage. I’d been backpacking."
Margot also criticised her 47-year-old co-star – who has son Trey, 23, from a previous marriage, and Jaden 18, and Willow, 15, with wife Jada Pinkett Smith – for his lack of manners.
She said: "I hate it when you say ‘huh?’ It’s rude…. Maybe I shouldn’t be scolding a man that’s twice my age."
Will added: "Somewhere as a child, Margot wasn’t allowed to say ‘Huh?’, she had to say ‘Pardon?’. It’s a habit. She [shouts] ‘It’s pardon!’ "
And Will is amused by his friend’s daredevil attitude to life.
He said: "She is a wild explorer, Margot will try anything. There is nothing that someone can suggest, ‘Hey what if we…’ ‘Yeah yeah’. ‘Margot, maybe you should find out what it is first.’ "
