Will Smith Found 'Concussion' Conflicting as a Football Dad
Will Smith poses for photos at a screening of his new movie Concussion on Thursday (November 12) at the Sony Screening Room in New York City.
The 47-year-old actor was joined at the event by his co-star David Morse, director Peter Landesman, and special guests like Usher, Peter Berg, Hill Harper, Cuba Gooding Jr., and newlyweds Leven Rambin and Jim Parrack.
In a recent interview, Will said that being a “football dad” made it tough for him to tackle the role in the movie.
“For me, [the role] was really conflicting. When I sat down with Bennet I was hoping, ‘Please say something to make me not take this movie,’” Will told Yahoo. “As a parent I felt like I had to be a part of this. Bennet’s quest for the truth… became our quest to deliver the truth, because people have to know.”
FYI: Will is wearing a Z Zegna sweater.
