Will Smith Brought the Magic of Mac and Cheese to the Aladdin Set
He has a Genie-ous for bringing the fun and the food, his co-workers say.
Will Smith: dream co-worker?
Not only did Aladdin director Guy Ritchie describe the star as “100 percent positive, 100 percent grateful and 100 percent appreciative of everything,” in an interview with People, Smith also turns out to be 100 percent generous with the food.
While working on the Disney film, Smith, who plays Genie, arranged for special treats for the cast and crew. For instance? He’d have yummy meals delivered to the set, his co-star Naomi Scott, who plays Princess Jasmine in the film, told People.
“He would do some really fun things. He would bring different food trucks,” Scott said. “We had macaroni and cheese and all these different types of mac and cheese, which was amazing.”
It’s kind of like that coworker of yours who leaves cookies and brownies in the office kitchen just to be nice, only better. Because mac-and-cheese food trucks.
