Chatting about Hollywood stars that he has formed friendships with since he took over The Daily Show, Trevor counted actor Will Smith as one of his close contacts.
“Will Smith has been someone who’s become a friend and a mentor in life. I grew up watching him and loving him,” Trevor told hosts Michael Strahan and Sara Haines, joking that he calls Will up every now again just to make sure that it’s really him.
The star explained that Lupita had loved his book so much that she had offered to play his mother in the movie. “I was like: ‘But there is no movie’. She’s like: 'There is now’,” he went on say.
