Actor Will Smith has teased that he may end his 10-year hiatus and release some new music.
The 46-year-old Independence Day star has been in the studio with Kanye West and has even been taking tips from his 16-year-old son Jaden.
His last solo album was Lost And Found in 2005.
“I went into the studio with Kanye. I’m thinking about it. I’m exploring,” he said at a special screening of his new film, Focus, in London.
“I’m not sure what I’m going to do yet but I’m exploring. I’m in a creative ceiling. My son tells me I have to write out the things I don’t like. I can’t write and stop, I have to keep going and going and write them out. I’ve never worked like that before but I think I might give that a shot.”
Smith, who braved the chilly temperatures in a navy polo-neck, tan suede jacket and tweed trousers, stars alongside Australian actress Margot Robbie in Focus.
The star also revealed that the thought of sharing the screen with the Australian beauty had his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, worried, who whipped him into shape before filming.
“Jada saw Margot and she said `You’re going to the gym right now. You need to be in shape. Do not walk on set with that girl and embarrass me’,”
“So we went to the gym and we trained a lot. I got it together and I think it turned out OK. When you’re on camera with Margot Robbie, you’ve got to have it all the way together.”
Robbie looked every inch the Hollywood star at the premiere, stunning onlookers in a monochrome trouser suit by Blumarine and a black Alexander McQueen coat.
At the red carpet event outside Vue Cinema in Leicester Square, London, the chemistry between the 24-year-old from Queensland’s Gold Coast and Smith was evident.
Their chemistry on set even sparked rumours of an affair last year, forcing Robbie to take to Twitter to deny any sort of an intimate off-screen relationship with Smith, who has been married to Pinkett Smith for 17 years.
However Smith was more than happy to talk about his co-star on Wednesday night and even joked about how some of their intimate scenes had to be edited, because “there was a whole lot of sexiness going on”.
“You can’t buy chemistry. She is fantastic. She’s 24 years old, bright and excited and that energy is really inspiring,” Smith said.
“We have that chemistry on camera despite me being 46 and her significantly younger.” Robbie, who previously starred opposite Leonardo DiCaprio in The Wolf Of Wall Street, had only compliments for her co-star also.
“He was wonderful. He’s got this incredible energy and it’s quite infectious. He’s quite the perfect person to be around on set. It was fun,” Robbie said.
The pair will reunite for DC Comics’ superhero movie Suicide Squad, where Smith will play assassin Deadshot and Robbie as villainess Harley Quinn. Focus, written and directed by Crazy, Stupid Love film-makers Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, opens in Australian cinemas on March 5. AAP
