Will Smith Names His Best and Worst Films, And Yes It’s That One
Will Smith is humble enough to admit he even has had some flops. In an interview with GQ, the actor begins to unpack what films showcase his talents and which ones he regrets doing.
For the best films, Smith can’t decide between two very different films as his top choices.
“For the best, I think it is a tie between the first Men in Black and The Pursuit of Happyness,” Smith said. “For different reasons, those are the two almost perfect movies.”
Men in Black was a huge blockbuster that became a franchise, while The Pursuit of Happyness gained the actor his first Oscar nom but was a more sentimental film to the actor as he costarred with his real-life son Jayden Smith.
Although ultimately losing the 2007 “Best Actor in a Leading Role” Oscar to Forest Whitaker in The Last King of Scotland, Smith addressed a comment from a fan on how he got passed up for the win.
“Ding, ding, ding,” Smith said. “Yes, good question. Let’s send that into the proper authorities.”
As for his worst film, Smith is in agreement with the masses: Wild Wild West.
“Wild Wild West is just a thorn in my side,” the actor said with a laugh. “To see myself with chaps. … I don’t like it.”
