Will Smith Reveals What He Thinks Is 'Worst' Movie He's Starred In


Will Smith Reveals What He Thinks Is 'Worst' Movie He's Starred In

Will Smith has shared what he believes to be his 'worst' movie across his lengthy career.

The actor has spent more than three decades appearing on our screens, racking up a whopping 76 acting credits to his name and even earning himself an Oscar nomination for best actor.

But he's now admitted that he's not overly impressed with all of his roles.

Speaking to GQ, the star revealed that one particular movie was a 'thorn in his side'.


When asked by the publication what he believed his worst flick was, he replied: "I don't know, Wild Wild West is a thorn in my side. To see myself in chaps... I don't like it."

Fair enough, mate - there's not many blokes who can pull off a pair of chaps, so don't be too hard on yourself.

The 1999 movie starred Smith and Kevin Kline as special agents in a weird steampunk-style Wild West.


The duo were tasked with protecting US President Ulysses S Grant (who was bizarrely also played by Kline) from an evil scientist hell bent on revenge for the loss of the Civil War.

Sounds, errr... interesting.

Wild Wild West has a less than fantastic 4.9/10 on IMDB and just 17 percent on Rotten Tomatoes.

When asked what he reckoned the best movie he'd been in, it was a joint first place for two of his films.


He explained: "For the best, I think it's a tie between the first Men in Black and Pursuit of Happyness.

"For different reasons, those are the two almost-perfect movies."

And no one had to wear chaps, which was a bonus.

This isn't the first time Smith has spoken openly about his career lowlights - back in 2015, he told Esquire After Earth, which also starred son Jaden, was 'the most painful failure' in his career. Ouch.

He went on to compare it to Wild Wild West, saying: "Wild Wild West was less painful than After Earth because my son was involved in After Earth and I led him into it.

He added: "That was excruciating."

The movie impacted him so deeply, Smith says he took a year-and-a-half of work and did some work on himself to get to the bottom of why it was 'so important' for him to have number-one ranking movies.
