Red carpet capers for superhero Will at 'Hancock' premiere

19 JUNE 2008
There's never a dull moment when US funnyman Will Smith is around - as the fun-loving actor demonstrated at the London premiere of his latest comedy flick Hancock. Taking a hands on approach to the red carpet duties he was sharing with co-star Charlize Theron, the actor ensured there were laughs aplenty at the Leicester Square screening on Wednesday.

"I was thinking about wearing Hancock's uniform, but it was a little tight and I thought it would be rather embarrassing," quipped the star, who dons an all-leather ensemble for his role as the down-and-out superhero in the movie. "I thought I'd just keep it simple and sexy," he added.

It was a dress code Charlize had clearly opted for too. The blonde was chic in an elegant black number.

Meanwhile, the former Fresh Prince star gave an insight into his always-chipper demeanor. "My life is exactly how I want it," he revealed. "So I couldn't even imagine wanting a super power!"
