‘I’m completely in love with Will Smith’
Actor Naomie Harris has labelled her Collateral Beauty co-star Will Smith the “nicest man” she has ever worked with.
The 39-year-old actor, who has shared the screen with a host of big names including Daniel Craig, Idris Elba, Pierce Brosnan and Colin Firth, said Smith has really taken her aback, reported Contactmusic.
During an appearance on British morning show Lorraine, Harris recalled her trip to The White House for a screening of Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom.
“I’m filming with Will Smith at the moment and I’m completely in love with him. He’s incredible - he’s the nicest man I’ve ever worked with!,” she added. The actor also took the opportunity to discuss the issue of diversity in Hollywood. Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith have made the decision to boycott the upcoming Oscars due to there being no black nominees. “There is a real issue with diversity and I hope that it really gets fixed because there are so many talented actors of different ethnicities who aren’t getting the opportunities they deserve,” she said.
