Anthony Mackie’s personal acquaintance with a Hollywood star turned into an embarrassment.
Actor Anthony Mackie recently admitted that Will Smith accidentally punched him in the face while celebrating his own 50th birthday in 2018. Appearing on a recent episode of The Jess Keigle Show, Maki first described the circumstances under which it happened. According to him, two years ago an agent phoned him and said that Smith was throwing a birthday party in Budapest. The actor was in this city because of the filming of the film “Gemini”.
The agent asked Maki if he would like to attend the holiday in order to personally present the actor with a cake. And Anthony happily agreed, dreaming of meeting a star. Moreover, he himself was on the set near Budapest.
But serving the cake turned out to be an awkward situation – Will thanked for the present and wanted to “high-five” his young colleague. And Anthony, out of excess of feelings, decided to hug him.
“He tried to grab my hand and hit me so hard in the jaw with his right cross,” Maki explained.
Anthony added that Will immediately apologized for the accidental combat reception and wondered for a long time if his guest was okay. And Maki still believes that Smith’s blow was comparable to Muhammad Ali.
Over the past two years, the young actor’s career has taken off, heading the highly anticipated Disney + series “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier,” due out this year.
