MEN IN BLACK star WILL SMITH took on another role last week (28SEP00) - as real-life daring firefighter.
Smith, who's in training to play MOHAMMED ALI in the big screen bio-pic, had to put some of his recently acquired muscles to the test when his housekeeper discovered a fire in the bathroom. And wife JADA PINKETT SMITH thinks her new macho husband is great. She says, "He has gone under quite a transformation, it's unbelievable.
The woman who works at our house opens the door and there's a big ball of fire in the bathroom. "So Will jumps over the coffee table, jumps into the bathroom and he's like, 'Oh my god, this is a big fire, Jada, leave the building immediately!' and he's just standing there looking at it."So I'm going, 'Just get the fire extinguisher'. So he puts the fire out then he's like, 'Jada, there's too many chemicals in the house, you must leave now!' This whole Ali thing, he's like Mr Superman now." (SVD/WNV/PDD)
