AceShowbiz - Will Smith played a videographer for Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson during one of their recent encounters and he's more than eager for the duty. In a hilarious video shared on his Instagram account, the Oscar-winning actor took a tumble while filming the former wrestler-turned-actor's thirst trap.
The clip, posted by Will on Sunday, December 4, opened with the "King Richard" star getting out of his hotel room while receiving a phone call. Looking enthusiastic, he was then seen walking backwards down a hallway with his phone in hand, directing his mystery subject to smile.
The scene then cut to Dwayne, who looked suave in a white jumper, matching trousers and a pair of sunglasses, making strides toward Will and showing his best model pose. "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" alum was clearly overexcited as he later fell backwards after tripping over his own feet.
Seemingly taking pride in being the so-called Instagram boyfriend of Dwayne, he bragged about being the man behind the camera in the caption, "You're in his DMs. I'm shooting his slo mo walks. We are different."
Dwayne, meanwhile, had a good laugh watching the video. "This had me belly laughing brotha," he shared his reaction in the comment section. "I told ya the Wi-Fi was the s**ts and we had to step out into the hallway to get the shot."
Showing his support for Will and his upcoming movie "Emancipation", the "Black Adam" star added, "Looking forward to seeing Emancipation, I know the commitment and hard work that you and everyone put in."
"Emancipation" marks Will's first film since the 2022 Academy Awards, where he slapped Chris Rock, who was on hand as presenter, on stage in March. In a recent interview, he expressed his hope that his controversial behavior wouldn't overshadow the hard work of director Antoine Fuqua and other crew members.
"I completely understand - if someone is not ready, I would absolutely respect that and allow them their space to not be ready," he told FOX 5 DC reporter Kevin McCarthy when asked what he would say to moviegoers who aren't ready to watch his new movie. He, however, noted, "My deepest concern is my team."
Praising Antoine's work on the slave drama, Will claimed, "Antoine has done what I think is the greatest work of his entire career. The people on this team have done some of the best work of their entire careers." He added that his "deepest hope is that my actions don't penalize my team. At this point, that's what I'm working for."
The 54-year-old went on highlighting the positive message of his movie, "I'm hoping that the material - the power of the film, the timeliness of the story - I'm hoping that the good that can be done would open people's hearts at a minimum to see and recognize and support the incredible artists in and around this film."
