Will Smith’s hugs, pats were comforting on sets: Woody HarrelsonJanuary 28th, 2009 - 7:31 pm ICT by IANS
New York, Jan 28 (IANS) Hollywood actor Woody Harrelson, who plays a blind piano player in “Seven Pounds”, says superstar Will Smith put him at ease by hugging and patting him on the sets of the movie.“I remember the first day on the set - I was so nervous about playing a blind piano player and Will came in and he was just patting people on the back and giving hugs and I thought, ‘it’s pretty amazing that the biggest star in the world is one of the nicest guys in the world’. That put me at ease,” said Harrelson.
The “Indecent Proposal” star says that though Will maintained this cheerful demeanour throughout the time he was on the sets, he was also very focused on the work.
“He (Will) was always trying new things and I think that helped us all get the full emotional content out of the story,” Harrelson added.
“Seven Pounds”, releasing in India Feb 13, is a suspense tale of a man with a haunting secret to redeem himself by drastically changing the lives of seven total strangers.
