Will Smith may be torn as to which of his movies is the best, but he has no such doubts when it comes to naming the one he believes to be his worst.

While promoting his upcoming sports drama King Richard, the Fresh Prince of Bel Air star looked back over his filmography during a segment with GQ, as he was tasked to go "undercover" on social media and see what his fans have been writing about him in recent months.

Leaving a comment under his new profile, he wrote: "For the best, I think it is a tie between the first Men in Black and The Pursuit of Happyness. For different reasons, those are the two almost perfect movies."

Then he added, laughing: "Wild Wild West is just a thorn in my side. To see myself with chaps… I don't like it."

Released in 1999, the action-comedy sees Smith star opposite Kevin Kline, as the pair play James West and Artemus Gordon, two 19th Century special agents who embark on a mission to save the president's daughter from a menacing, steampunk-savvy Confederate scientist, hellbent on exacting revenge after losing the Civil War.

Also starring Scandal's Tony Goldwyn and The Walking Dead's Jon Bernthal, King Richard follows the father and coach of tennis champions Serena and Venus Williams.

"Driven by a clear vision of their future and using unconventional methods, Richard has a plan that will take Venus and Serena from the streets of Compton, California to the global stage as legendary icons," the official synopsis reads.

King Richard is set for release on November 19, and will also be available via HBO Max, in the US.
