A film is often remembered for its actors and their dialogues. For Will Smith, there is no shortage of such dialogues. Having worked in dozens of movies for over three decades, the actor has aced in his career. Now, being a versatile actor, even the range of his role has taken him from playing serious and sad to funny and outrageous characters.
While the actor grabbed an Oscar for his recent biopic King Richards, most of the fan base treasures old classics that made him the star he is today. So when back in 2004, he was asked about his favorite catchphrase; he picked a catchphrase from his timeless classic.
Will Smith once revealed his favorite catchphrase from his sci-fi movie
Will Smith had just begun enjoying the pinnacle of his career in the early 2000s. Contributing to his glory was the Men in Black franchise, which remains a fan favorite to this day. When the first part was released in 1997, it became an instant success. That led him to get into another sci-fi flick I, Robot, in 2004. It was during a promotional interview with BlackFilm, for this movie that the actor was asked multiple questions. The first one was about his favorite movie catchphrase. “You know what the difference is between you and me? I make this look good,” he repeated his dialogue from Men in Black.
Smith played the role of Agent J, who says the phrase to his work partner, Agent K played by Tommy Lee Jones. It is during Agent J’s induction that he is given a permanent special suit that he wears before saying his dialogue. “That one went over well,” Smith confessed to BlackFilm in 2004 about how most of his fans repeat the catchphrase upon meeting him.
