Will Smith: The next best politician?!

2015-11-26 21:00

Los Angeles - Will Smith is considering a move into politics.

The 47-year-old American is among the best paid actors in Hollywood, but has revealed he could enter the political arena "in the near future".

He said: "I'm working really hard and my storytelling is elevating, my ability to be eloquent with my body and with my voice and to deliver ideas as an actor is elevating.

"'And, you know, as I look at the political landscape, I think that there might be a future out there for me. They might need me out there."

Will said he's "incensed" with the current state of politics, and is therefore weighing up the idea of making a dramatic career switch.

He told the Awards Chatter podcast: "This is the first year that I've been incensed to a level that I can't sleep, you know?

"So I'm feeling that at some point, in the near future, I will have to lend my voice to the conversation in a somewhat different way."

Meanwhile, Will also said his career success can be largely credited to his work ethic.

The Men in Black star explained: "I don't consider myself particularly talented - I consider myself slightly above average in talent - but nobody's going to outwork me.
''I'll take a slight talent and then add the skill to it and can make it look magnificent, you know?"
