Lately, Will Smith has been candid about his personal life and what he has lived throughout his marriage with Jada Pinkett Smith, however, this time he is reflecting on one of the best pieces of advice he got from The Terminator himself, Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Keeping in mind that Will Smith is very good not only at acting but also at telling stories, to reveal he got one of the best pieces of advice in his life he made an uncanny impression of Arnold Schwarzennegger that left all the fans and the audience quite shocked (in a good way).
During an appearance on The Graham Norton Show, the host who is remarkable at eliciting the best stories from the stars asked him about that one time Will attended an Opening of a Planet Hollywood restaurant.
Will Smith then revealed that the event happened in Australia and while there he noticed that Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, and Sylvester Stallone were there together. The three of them were investors so it was not so rare to see them there.
Will was not into the Hollywood superstar mood yet and had not been in the successful films we all know. So what did he do? He decided that the best course of action was to approach the three 'Magi' or 'Wise Men' as he calls them, and ask them for advice.
“So I walked into the crowd and I was like, ‘Hey guys, I’m sorry. Listen, I want to do what you’re doing, I want to be the biggest movie star in the world, and I know if anybody can tell me how to do it you guys can,” said Smith.
Then, according to him, Schwarzenegger, Stallone, and Willis simply looked at each other and spoke in their “secret movie star language” to communicate that Arnold was going to answer me,”
Here is when the uncanny impression of Arnold Schwarzenegger starts since Will Smith made his signature accent in an over-the top-way.
“If you’re going to be a movie star, the movies can’t only be successful in America,” said Smith in his Schwarzenegger impression. “You’ve got to go to every country in the world, you have to think of yourself as a politician running for the job of biggest movie star in the world.” It looks like he took his own advice since he run as a politician, and succeeded.
This made the fans go wild since it really sounds like Arnold and chimed in to comment on the video. “Arnold is right. That is great advice for Actors and CEOs,” said one person while another added, “That Arnold impression though.”
Will Smith has appeared in several films including Bad Boys For Life, Collateral Beauty, King Richard, Independence Day, and Men In Black. So it's safe to say that he indeed took the advice seriously.
