Will Smith Wants To Portray President Obama Because They Have Similar Ears [AUDIO]
Action superstar Will Smith called in to “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” to talk about the influence his superstar children, Willow and Jaden, have on his fashion, and if he would play President Barack Obama in a film.
Would Will Be Open To Portraying President Barack Obama In A Movie?
“Yes. I spoke to Barack two months ago and we were talking about it. I really think it’s the ears. We have matching ears. I think that’s what people see in the resemblance. I told him that I would absolutely consider it. He just had to write a fantastic ending. We’re waiting for Barack to finish the screenplay and write this fantastic ending in a couple of months, and then we’ll go ahead and get started.”
On Raising Jaden & Willow Smith:
“They influence every aspect of my life. I can’t even put on a pair of pants and walk out without getting looked up and down or getting critiqued.”
What Have You Been Doing The Past Few Years?
“Family business is really entertainment so…during that time we made the ‘Karate Kid‘ and Willow‘s ‘Whip My Hair‘ and Jada on ‘Hawthorne.’ So daddy’s been doing a little family producing and organizing, but they are very ready for daddy to go back to work.”
On The Lasting Popularity of ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’:
“That is the biggest thing I have ever done. Ever. It’s like the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air in different languages and around the world. There’s something about that show that has connect with people in a really really deep way.”
Will’s newest action film MIB 3 will be released in theaters nationwide this Friday.
