Tommy Davidson is gearing up for the release of his memoir, Living in Color, and he’s not holding back about the things that went down on set.
Davidson starred alongside Jada Pinkett Smith in the film, Woo, and when he got the brilliant idea to plant a wet one on the actress, he forgot to run it by her.
Jada was already engaged to Will Smith at the time so he was present on set, and wasn’t feeling it when he witnessed his then-fiancee flinch after Davidson went in for the kiss.
“I didn’t know this: You have to rehearse a kiss,” Tommy wrote in his new memoir. “You can’t just spring it on your costar … And I didn’t think it was all that big of a deal.” After the scene wrapped up, Tommy said the Bad Boys actor pressed him. “I didn’t appreciate that,” Will said.
“Will went all gangsta on me, saying what I did was not cool,” Tommy continued. “There was a moment there when we might have come to blows. My reactive fight-or-flight instinct was triggered and I could have exploded.”
But Jada graciously stepped in and diffused the situation. There’s no beef and the happily married couple are friendly whenever they run into Tommy Davidson.
