Magic Carpet Is In Hollywood

Will Smith, who plays the genie in Disney’s new live-action version of its 1992 animated film “Aladdin,” brought his entire family to the premiere. His wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, even wore a genie-inspired outfit on the red carpet.

“The actor’s children Willow, 18, Jaden, 20, and Trey, 26, proudly posed with their father on the purple carpet in front of the El Capitan Theater in Hollywood,” People.com reported. “But it was wife Jada Pinkett Smith that really went all out to celebrate his new film, with the actress attending her husband’s big night dressed in a look inspired by his character, the Genie. Jada, 47, rocked a blue crop top covered in silver gemstones, along with matching wide-legged pants and strappy silver heels. She topped off her look with red lipstick and silver jewelry.”

Mena Massoud, who plays Aladdin, says working with Will Smith was a blessing and a “dream come true.”

“It was amazing working with Will, I mean dream come true,” Massoud told People Magazine. “Will’s films were definitely–I grew up on them, so that was a dream come true.”

Massoud said Smith gave him advice on the set of “Aladdin,” such as “to stay true to myself and that no matter how your career goes, in whichever direction, I think you know, no matter how big you get or whatever else happens, happiness really comes from within.”
