After suggestive photo booth pictures of Will Smith and his “Focus” co-star, Margot Robbie, surfaced online this week (sparking tabloid headlines claiming a rift between Will and wife Jada Pinkett Smith), Margot took to Twitter to set the record straight.
“Been working non-stop, just catching my breath,” the 23-year-old Aussie actress Tweeted on Thursday night. “There’s absolutely no truth to the ridiculous rumor in Star mag…”
Margot said she and Will, 45, were merely blowing off steam and having a little fun.
“It’s disappointing that goofing around on set could be taken so out of context,” she added.
A source close to production on “Focus” told Access Hollywood that reports claiming the photo booth snaps were taken at a wrap party are incorrect, as the movie has not yet wrapped. Additionally, the source said the pics weren’t taken at a party at all – the photo booth was on set for multiple days to provide some fun for the cast and crew.
The source also told Access that the film’s set is very friendly and fun, and the photos in question were taken with many people around )and the rest of the cast and crew were taking similar pictures and joking around).
Will and Margot are shooting “Focus” in New Orleans.
Kristen Stewart and Ben Affleck were initially attached to star in the comedy, but Ben exited in December 2012 due to scheduling conflicts and Kristen quickly followed suit.
