Record breaker Will
16:30 23 February 2005
Will Smith broke the world record yesterday (22.02.05) for the number of premieres attended by a celebrity in one day.
The Hollywood superstar jetted across Britain in a bid to make three red-carpet screenings of his new film 'Hitch' - starting in Manchester, before flying to London, then Birmingham.
The 38-year-old actor will now be noted in the Guinness Book of Records for achieving the greatest number of public appearances in just 12 hours.
At each stop, Will - dressed casually in a camel coat, jeans and leather cap - was greeted by hundreds of screaming fans.
The 'Men In Black' star, who was joined by his 'Hitch' co-stars Eva Mendes and Amber Valletta, also stopped to sign autographs and pose for photos.
On arriving at snowy London's Leicester Square, he said: "I've had a beautiful day. They got me in the Guinness Book of World Records - I like that! It's kind of cool.
"I love being able to meet my fans. It's the reason I do what I do. The reaction from people has been great, and I'm so grateful they came out to see me in the snow."
In the romantic comedy, Smith plays a New York date doctor who helps men woo the women of their dreams.
