Will Smith spied prudish Prince Charles’ romp-dodging ploy

Smith romped with his real-life wife Jada Pinkett Smith onscreen in the 2001 picture, which charted the life of boxing legend Muhammad Ali, and Britain’s heir to the throne was among the audience at its London unveiling.

But the royal didn’t seem too keen to watch the Smiths get it on at the premiere, and the Hollywood star has revealed the prince had a pre-arranged ploy to avert his eyes when the saucy scene was played out.

Smith tells U.K. talk show host Graham Norton, “It was really cool, I sat next to Prince Charles at the premiere of Ali and someone taps his shoulder before the love scene comes up and he looked down the whole time and when it came to an end someone tapped him again and he looked up. He missed my best work!”
