Will Smith's Dumb Watch

Will Smith has to monitor his "dumbness".

The screen legend - who is presenting the Nobel Peace Prize Concert tomorrow (11.12.09) in Oslo, Norway with his wife Jada Pinkett Smith - has vowed to keep an eye on his stupidity when he's on stage in celebration this year's Nobel Peace Prize laureate Barack Obama.

Will said: "I'm going to have to restrain some of my standard dumbness!"

Despite his successes, Will claims he still hasn't found his place in life and hopes the concert will help him get some perspective.

He said: "You know, once you reach your 40th birthday, the world starts looking a little different. It's really frustrating sometimes, but I just feel like this is the right place to meet people, and as my grandmother used to say, 'Make the world better just because you were there.' "

To stop them getting nervous about the show, the pair plan to pretend they're "in their living room" with friends and not being watched by a star-studded audience and aired in front of millions of viewers. Jada explained to the USA Today newspaper: "We want to make it seem as though we are hosting very prestigious guests in our living room. We want to be able to just bring some warmth and a little laughter and fun into the programme."

The concert will be held at the Oslo Spektrum venue, and will include performances by Natasha Bedingfield, Wyclef Jean, Donna Summer and Toby Keith.

The couple are due to interview US president Barack Obama today (10.12.09) about his award. This interview will be aired during tomorrow's show.

The concert will be aired in the US early next year.
