Los Angeles: Actor Will Smith, who loves to perform daredevil stunts on and off screen, is actually afraid of mice in real life.
On “The Ellen DeGeneres Show”, the anchor confronted the “Aladdin” actor about his fear of mice. She even tricked him into thinking there were live mice in the studio, reports etcanada.com.
After seeing the mice, Smith got scared and asked DeGeneres to take them away from the studio.
He said: “Dont play with that… I am terrified of mice. I had a childhood experience with it.”
Sharing a short video clip of the episode, the talk show host tweeted: “Will Smith is so afraid of mice, he can’t even look at the one I have right next to me.”
