Will Smith says that one of his co-stars SPIT in his face while filming “Emancipation”

Will Smith discusses his role as an escaped slave in Antoine Fuqua’s Emancipation and how it broadened his awareness of the “generational pain” caused by the transatlantic slave trade.

Smith spoke on the newest installment of Red Table Talk with his children Willow, 22, Jaden, 24, and Trey Smith, 30, where he spoke openly about his metamorphosis to feature in the new film, which depicts the actual story of Peter, an escaped slave who goes on a perilous voyage to the north.
