Comedian and actor Paul Rodriguez hasn’t worked with Will Smith since the 2001 biopic “Ali,” in which Smith portrayed legendary boxer Muhammad Ali and Rodriguez had a small role as Dr. Ferdie Percheo — and there’s a good reason for that.
“I’d never work with him again. He was an a—hole,” Rodriguez tells San Diego’s Rock 105.3 during an interview. “There was no cause to insult me or berate me. I’m no angel, but I didn’t have it coming this time.”
Talk about holding a grudge. When asked why Smith might have been so testy with him, Rodriguez speculates that it could have had something to do with the “steroids he was using.” So there’s that.
