Newton: 'It's Hard Being Horrible To Will'

THANDIE NEWTON failed to bond with her co-star WILL SMITH on the set of THE PURSUIT OF HAPPYNESS, and admits they "never got to know each other". Newton and Smith's characters are at odds in the new movie, and this tension continued once the cameras had stopped rolling. She tells the New York Daily News, "To work opposite Will in this way, I knew it was special, even though part of me was pretty bummed out. "How come I get to work with Will and we shout at each other every day? I arrive on set and everyone is like, 'Oh, this is going to be so sad...' "At the end of the day, when we've been horrible to each other, it was very hard to then just be sweet and nice, because we had to channel so much s**t to do it. We never got to know each other as who we are. "I really felt my job was to give Will and give the story what it needed. It had to be pretty rough. That's my gift to it and to him, although I wish I could have been in HITCH!"
