'Focus' star Margot Robbie has revealed she found Will Smith to be "everything you can imagine, and more"

Margot Robbie says working with Will Smith was "everything you can imagine, and more".

The 24-year-old Australian actress stars alongside the Hollywood icon in 'Focus' and admits working with Will fulfilled all of her expectations, even though she didn't known about his role in 'The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air'.

She recalled: "Will is everything you can imagine, and more - but I'd actually never heard of The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air.

"He was... not offended, but maybe a little surprised I didn't know who Jazzy Jeff was. I didn't understand a lot of the references, which of course the crew were all over. I said his name wrong, I called him Jazzy Jam or something. Will said, 'Are you serious?' I had no idea what he was talking about. I think he thought I was a lost cause."

And Margot - who lives in London and spends lots of her professional time in the US - says she still enjoys her home comforts.

She told ShortList magazine: "I live in London so I get people to bring over Dilmah tea, and Tim Tams, which my housemate assures me are similar to Penguins. We have lots of arguments over what is better, and they're yet to be resolved."

Nicky (Smith) is a lifelong con man who takes wannabe swindler Jess (Robbie) under his wing, only to fall for her; dull romantic twists and not-very-ingenious stings ensue. The two stars have almost no chemistry and the film's greatest scam is that it fools you into thinking it's going to amount to more than it does.
