The bromance has begun!

Will Smith Attended The Australian Open & Got Burned By Nick Kyrgios Channel Seven

Like Will Ferrell did only a few days ago, Will Smith decided to pop into the Australian Open while he was in the country to watch a game.

Unlike Will Ferrell, who ended up interviewing Roger Federer as Ron Burgandy, Will Smith tried to keep his appearance low-key, but everyone knew he was in the audience anyway.

Will watched Nick Kyrgios play against his childhood hero, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, last night and after the Australian beat his hero, he engaged in a bit of banter with the famous audience member.

During a post-game interview, a reporter reminded Nick of who he said would play him in a movie about his life.

Nick knew full well that he had said Will Smith and knew that the man himself was in the audience. 

He told the reporter that the actor made him very "nervous" but there was something he just had to tell him.

"When I saw him out here, I was so nervous.

"No joke. I was like, ‘Oh my God.’ People think I’m cool, but I wanted him to think I was the coolest person ever.

"I’ve gotta tell him.

"I have Focus on my phone. I watch every time I have a flight.

"It’s the best movie … But it’s because of Margot Robbie by the way."


Will cracked up in the crowd and apparently after the game, they both had a laugh together after the game and snapped a few selfies.

Nick three tiebreakers to defeat Jo-Wilfried 7-6 (7-5), 4-6, 7-6 (8-6), 7-6 (7-5), and will now advance to the fourth round, where he’ll play Bulgaria's Grigor Dimitrov.
