Will Smith stars as a master of misdirection in “Focus” from Warner Bros.
EUR was on the scene at the Los Angeles premiere and spoke with the leading man himself, Christina Milian, Karrueche Tran, Tia Mowry, and Alfonso Ribeiro about relationships and con artists.
EUR: If you could successfully pull off a con what would you do and why?
Will Smith: I love the big cons! There is a Barnum & Bailey in my heart, so it would be something really big with lots of people, that no one has ever done before!
Alfonso Ribeiro: I would con America into giving me the Powerball winnings!
EUR: How do you and your partner manage relationship rebirths?
Sheree Fletcher: Relationship rebirths … I have no idea what that means. Will (Smith) is very intelligent and ahead of the curve. So, if he says we need to rebirth a relationship, do it! I don’t know how but once I find out…I’m game!
Will Smith: Jada and I have struggled with balancing work and personal time. The problem is one person is in work mode, while the other person is in chill mode. In time you’ll realize you are either really committed to having a relationship or really committed to coming up. At some point one or the other is going to have to suffer.
Tia Mowry: We dress up for each other! When we go out on date nights, it’s like we are going out on our first date. I’ll put on my makeup, a sexy dress, and he’ll put on a really nice outfit, then we’ll have a great meal and some wine. Its important to not loose yourself within the relationship. You have to keep yourself up and make sure you look good for your man and vice versa!
Karrueche Tran: Keep yourself fresh – with what you wear and switch up your hair!
Alfonso Ribeiro: Communication is the key to all relationships, whether it’s a friendship, a marriage, or two people dating. One of the things I like to do is called ‘checking in.’ You check in with the other person and say, ‘how are you, let’s talk, let’s get to the bottom of how we’re feeling right now.’
