Boris Johnson introduced Will Smith and his son Jaden to screams of enthusiasm from those attending the event at City Hall to promote Mr Johnson’s Leadership Clubs.
Audience members asked Mr Smith who had inspired him. The Hollywood actor deftly sidestepped the question by asking who the Mayor’s inspirational figures where.
Boris Johnson cited Aristotle.
“That’s funny, Aristotle is one of mine,” said Will Smith, and went on to say that Aristotle’s Poetics had inspired many filmmakers.
“You see, we got a lot in common,” he said.
