Mexico, – Will Smith visited the municipality of Yautepec, in the central Mexican state of Morelos, next to Mexico City, where he is working on a new film project.
Smith, twice nominated for Oscar Award (“Ali” in 2001, and “The Pursuit of Happiness” in 2006) and four Grammy Awards to his credit for his musical career, descended from a helicopter on a soccer field in the cited municipality.
The descent of the aircraft was witnessed by a score of people, who realized the presence of the actor, 50 years, were surprised.
Upon realizing the presence of the public, Smith postponed for a moment his ascent to the vehicle waiting for his transfer and approached the fence that limited the sports field to sign autographs and take pictures with several people.
According to local media, the presence of the movie star in Mexico is due to come to finalize some details about the filming of the movie “Bad Boys For Life”, a sequel to “Bad Boys” (1995) and Bad Boys II (2003).
In turn, the Secretary of Tourism of Morelos indicated in a bulletin that Smith recorded scenes for the third part of the saga “Bad Boys” in Hacienda de Oacalco.
The director general of the Film Commission in the state, Alicia Castillo Baraya, quoted in the statement, said that originally a single scene would be recorded in the Hacienda de Oacalco; however, due to the quality and conditions of the place, it was extended to three scenes with the popular American actor.
Smith retains in Hollywood and before his many followers around the world the youthful image of extrovert and naughty type that enjoys fame as if it were a children’s game.
The actor married in 1997 with the actress Jada Pinkett Smith, with whom she forms one of the most influential and respected couples in Hollywood.
Both refused to attend the Oscars ceremony in 2016 in protest at the lack of black actors among the candidates for the Hollywood Academy’s acting awards.
They have two children who have already taken their first steps in the world of cinema at the hand of his father: Jaden Smith, co-star of “The Pursuit of Happyness”; and also to Willow Smith, who appeared in “I Am Legend” (2007).
Smith waits on May 24, when he will premiere the movie “Aladdin”, where he plays the “Genius”. (EFE).
