Will Smith On Presidential Run Rumors: 'I Could Handle [Trump] Quite Well'

So much for those Smith In '16 campaign buttons.

Will Smith, alongside wife Jada Pinkett Smith, hit the Golden Globes red carpet on Sunday night, where Access Hollywood's Billy Bush asked Will about all the talk that he was thinking about a run at the White House.

Actually, why don't we let Jada answer the question once and for all.

"I told him that there's no way he can run for President because nobody wants me as the First Lady and I don’t want to be the First Lady," Jada laughed.

So just how serious was Will about his previous presidential comments back in December?

"No, I can answer that for you. He's not serious about it. At all," Jada interjected, as Will laughed.

"I said it as jokingly-ish,… I do feel that there is a – you're just shaking your head," Will said, noticing Jada repeatedly shaking her head, albeit with a smile. "I was joking. I was joking."

But if he were to run, how does Will think he'd stack up against Donald Trump in a war of words?

"Could you handle The Donald in a debate?" Billy asked the "Concussion" star.

"That would be very easy. I could handle that quite well," Will smiled.
