Why Paul Rodriguez Says He'd Never Work With Will Smith Again After 'Ali' Experience
One of Will Smith’s former co-stars says he’ll never work with the Oscar-winner/slapper again. Paul Rodriguez appeared with Smith in the 2001 biopic "Ali." He told Inside Edition’s Jim Moret that he experienced Smith’s rage up close and in person, and that it was terrifying. Smith packed on 35 pounds of muscle to play boxing legend Muhammad Ali. His startling transformation earned him his first Oscar nomination.
