Will Smith Reveals His Con Man Skills At “Focus” Premiere

Published

on

After a brief hiatus from acting, Will Smith is returning to the box office with the new film Focus. We caught up with Smith at the premiere where he revealed to us what he learned to take on the role of a con man. “You know what I learned that was really cool, what the basis of a con is,” said Smith. “The concept of extraction and distraction, that when you distract someone you open yourself up to take stuff.”

Smith stars alongside Australian beauty Margot Robbie in the film, and told us he was also completely focused on training for the role. “Training was hard core,” said Smith. “I’m 46 now, it used to be a couple of months to get in shape, now it had to shift to a lifestyle pretty much everyday.”

But Smith says he’s in the best shape of his life and showed it off in a grey three piece suit on the black carpet. Smith’s wife Jada Pinkett-Smith was also on hand for the premiere along with a host of other celebes including Tyrese, Christina Milian, Tia Mowry-Hardrict and Empire star Bryshere Y. Grey.

Hit the flip for the full red carpet coverage from the premiere.

For Natalie Portman, Tessa Thompson and Gina Rodriguez, the film, which also lends a voice to what is being called the year of the woman, dressing in head to toe military gear and going through tactical training was a bonding experience.

“”t was really fun. It’s weird to say that. But to have all these women in military training together, where we had to do these exercises … it was a great bonding experience with each other.” Portman told us.

And although the women had the opportunity to use real guns, firearms is not something the ladies of Hollywood advocate. “I’m anti gun to be honest,” Rodriguez said. “I say no guns. There’s no reason for people to have guns especially when you have these,” she said while holding up her firsts.

This past week Gina has been very vocal via social media about gun legislation and the idea behind policy and change following the tragic high school massacre an Parkland, Florida.
Annihilation, also starring Oscar Isaac, hits theaters on February 23.
