The “Men in Black” actor still Apologizes for the “Wild, Wild West”

Will Smith is unhappy with his 1999 film Wild, Wild West. Interestingly, the Emancipation actor turned down the role of Neo in The Matrix for this film. Earlier, speaking in Cannes, he shared: “There was a lag — about the time of the Wild Wild West.
