It goes without saying that “unconventional” has defined the US’ political landscape in recent years. And Will Smith may be the next surprise name entering politics.
Full story below…
Speaking on the ‘Pod Save America’ podcast, the superstar actor says he has not struck off the possibility of running for the US presidency.
He told host Jon Favreau:
“I think for now I’ll let that office get cleaned up a little bit and then I’ll consider that at some point down the line.”
Smith went on to stress that he’s keen to use his platform for good – whether via politics or not:
“I don’t know, it’s like, I absolutely have an opinion. I’m optimistic. I’m hopeful. I believe in understanding between people and I believe in the possibility of harmony. So, I will certainly do my part, whether it remains artistic or at some point ventures into the political arena.”
His words come after he slammed Donald Trump’s verbiage when he said:
“If people keep saying all the crazy kinds of stuff they’ve been saying on the news lately about walls and Muslims, they’re going to force me into the political arena.”
