Will Smith has revealed what he believes to be the “worst” film he thinks he has ever starred in.

In an interview with GQ, the multi award winning and nominated actor said that the 1999 film Wild Wild West he starred in was “just a thorn in [his] side” and laughed about how he hadn’t liked seeing himself “with chaps”

Wild Wild West is an American steampunk Western film starring Smith, Kevin Kline, Kenneth Branagh, Salma Hayek and Ted Levine.

The film was directed by Barry Sonnenfeld and saw Smith play a Secret Service agent with Kline in the wild west who is tasked with protecting the then US President Ulysses S. Grant.

It received mostly negative reviews and was a major flop at the box office. It was even nominated for eight Golden Raspberry Awards, which isn’t exactly a compliment either.

On a more positive note, however, Smith also said his joint-favourite film was a tie, between the first Men In Black and Pursuit of Happyness. Smith explained the films were his most preferred for “different reasons” but said that they were the “two almost perfect movies” in his eyes.

We just hope his Wild Wild West colleagues aren’t too offended by his rankings.
