Will Smith lived up to his reputation as an all-round entertainer this week when he delivered an impromptu concert to a crowd of more than 3,500 West End aficionados.
The actor, who was attending the London premiere of his latest film 'I, Robot', was accompanied by long-time associate DJ Jazzy Jeff, and ran through a series of his biggest hits.
A temporary stage in London's Leicester Square enabled the Fresh Prince to blast out classics from his back catalogue including "Men In Black and "Summertime".
"When you have these kind of events everybody can't get in. I wanted to give the people who came to support me a little treat out here," he commented.
The premiere proved to be a star-studded affair, with "Baywatch" and "Knight Rider" star David Hasselhof present, along with boy band Busted, former Atomic Kitten Natasha Hamilton and Blue's Simon Webbe.
"I, Robot" amassed $53.3 million (28.4 million) in its opening weekend in the US last month, outscoring all of Smith's previous films including the earlier summer blockbuster "Independence Day".
