Will Smith Blasted by British Broadcaster Nick Grimshaw For Being "Fake Nice"

Is Will Smith really just a big phony or is he really always this positive?

(AllHipHop News) BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show host Nick Grimshaw has slammed Will Smith for being "fake nice."

In an interview with The Sunday Times magazine, the broadcaster, who is famous for his friendships with celebrities including Kate Moss, Lily Allen, and Harry Styles, shared his thoughts about some of the A-list guests he interviewed during his six years on the show, including Angelina Jolie, Kim Kardashian West and rapper and actor Will, 49, who he dubbed "fake."

"He was high-fiving the receptionist and saying, 'You're the best receptionist ever,'" he told the publication. "High-fiving the phone person and saying, 'You'd better answer those phones!' which I thought was a tad patronizing.

"Coming into an office and saying, 'Wow, you answer phones!' It seemed a bit self-aware, like, 'I'm really famous and you're really excited that I've acknowledged you.'"

The 33-year-old made his comments as he prepares to exit the Radio 1 Breakfast Show in September amid falling ratings.
