Superstar Will Smith clowned over ‘Aladdin’ movie look


Will Smith is one of the greatest box office attractions in the history of the American motion picture business. His place among the pantheon of cinematic legends is cemented permanently.

But his enviable perch as a Hollywood heavyweight was far from sufficient enough to insulate him from the social media beatdown he is enduring after the cover photo for his upcoming movie Aladdin was released to the public.

After the Entertainment Weekly cover shot was released to the public, the star of blockbuster movies such as Men in Black, Independence Day, Pursuit of Happyness, I, Robot, Enemy of the State and Hitch among others, seemed jubilant:

“BAM!! First look at the Genie 🧞‍♂️, Princess Jasmine, and #Aladdin! Check Me Rockin’ the Top Knot Ponytail Vibes in @entertainmentweekly 😆 (and yes, I’m gonna be BLUE! 🙂 This is how the Genie is in Human / Disguise Form. My character will be CGI most of the movie.)”

Social media had another, radically different, take on Smith’s look.
