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.

Peter Berg Has the 'Utmost Respect' for Caitlyn Jenner

Peter Berg has taken to Instagram to explain why he posted a transphobic meme about Caitlyn Jenner during the ESPYs on Wednesday night.

The 51-year-old director is best known for directing the films Lone Survivor, Battleship, and Friday Night Lights. He shared a meme that showed side-by-side photos of Caitlyn an Army veteran/double amputee along with this caption: “One man traded 2 legs for the freedom of the other to trade 2 balls for 2 boobs. Guess which man made the cover of Vanity Fair, was praised for his courage by President Obama and is to be honored with the ‘Arthur Ashe Courage Award’ by ESPN?”

Here is what Peter wrote on Thursday afternoon to clarify his intentions by posting the meme: “I have the utmost respect for Caitlyn Jenner and I am a strong supporter of equality and the rights of trans people everywhere. I also believe that we don’t give enough attention to our courageous returning war veterans, many of whom have sacrificed their bodies and mental health for our country and our principals- principals that include the freedom to live the life you want to live without persecution or abuse.”
