New York City Is Hindering Will Smith’s Art

Beloved movie actor Will Smith is in New York right now shooting Men in Black III, and some city residents are mad at him. It's all about his trailer — a beautiful-sounding structure that clocks in at 53 feet, and boasts its own bar and conference room — taking up too much space on their tiny Soho streets ("This is killing our business," "The smell that comes along with it is disgusting," blah blah blah). Look, self-centered people of New York: Will Smith is a movie star; he deserves a gigantic, luxury trailer. And did you not see the first two Men in Black movies? They were really entertaining! Don't you want a third one? Can't you just, like, walk around? Jeez. [NYP]
