Will Smith on Matrix

The Sunday Mirror asked Will Smith about turning down the role of Neo in the original Matrix and how he feels about his wife, Jada, being in the sequels:

“The Matrix was just one of those concepts that was really hard to get your head round. For someone to say, OK, there’s this other world, and the computers have taken over, right?’ And you’re like, OK! I think I’d better go straight to Wild Wild West.”

And Jada?

“When I was originally going to do the first Matrix she was keen for me to get involved. But now she’s like, You stay away from this movie.”
