Will Smith has slammed Donald Trump and spoken out about the heightened level of Islamophobia in the West, according to CNN. The 47-year-old Men In Black actor may be playing a supervillain in Suicide Squad and an adversary of Batman in the comic books, but his recent anti-Trump rhetoric suggests that he is playing for the “good” side.
During his recent press conference in Dubai while promoting Suicide Squad, which has grossed nearly $470 million worldwide, Will Smith trashed Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.

When the discussion unexpectedly (or perhaps expectedly, given that the U.S. presidential election 2016 is just three months away) started revolving about American politics, Will Smith said that although it’s “painful” and “embarrassing” for an American to hear Trump talk, it’s “good” that he’s talking.
“We get to hear it. We get to know who people are and now we get to cleanse it out of our country.”
Will Smith also admitted that one of the reasons he wanted to be the one to promote Suicide Squad in Dubai was Trump’s anti-Islamic sentiment. In such a way, the actor, who plays Deadshot in DC’s Suicide Squad film, is showing his protest against Trump and his foreign policy ideas.
“In terms of Islamophobia in America, for me, that’s why it’s important to show up.”
Will Smith added that him tweeting about people in Dubai and showing pictures of him having fun serves as evidence to Americans that people in Dubai, the religion of which is Islam, don’t “hate” him just because he’s an American.
In other news, playing the sassy and sexy Suicide Squad character Harley Quinn has surely had an impact on the seemingly cute, classy, and beautiful Margot Robbie, according to Entertainment Weekly. The 26-year-old Wolf of Wall Street actress claims that her Suicide Squad co-star Will Smith’s penis is small.
Will Smith and Robbie appeared on BBC Radio 1 to promote Suicide Squad, which opened around the world on August 5, and they played a little fun game of Playground Insults. During the game, the Aussie actress revealed one embarrassing detail about Smith. And in particular, about his penis.
It all started with Robbie making fun of Will Smith’s big ears and saying that they were so big he could easily pick up Wi-Fi signals from her mother’s house in Australia. But since it was Playground Insults, Robbie knew her Suicide Squad was about to throw a few “your mom” insults at her, so she warned the 47-year-old actor to not talk about her mom.
“You just want to say something inappropriate about my mom, I know you do.”

But Will Smith wasn’t willing to give up just yet, and said the problem of that game is that they know “too much about each other.”
“Or, you could use your Finding Dory pins on your sweater to contact your mom through underwater telepathic ways.”
While Will Smith was looking for the most gentle and not-really-insulting insults, his Suicide Squad co-star went hardcore and revealed an embarrassing detail about his penis (a rather small detail, it appears).
Robbie started by commenting about Will Smith’s looks, saying that he was the “worst-looking” cast member of I Am Legend, suggesting that Smith looked even worse than monsters shown in the 2007 film.
But then Will Smith fired back by saying (which he later regretted) that she is only saying this because she is mad he had slept with her mother. And that’s where Robbie embarrassed Smith by revealing his penis size.
“She didn’t even bother to call you back. She thought your name was Big Willie, but [it] turns out she felt so misled by that nickname.”
