Do not—we repeat, do not—look for a revival of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air anytime soon.

“I don’t think ever, like pretty close to when hell freezes over,” Will Smith said about possibly rebooting his classic sitcom while promoting Suicide Squad with co-star Margot Robbie. “Like we’re going to leave that one alone.”

Rumours circulated a year ago that a reboot was in the works with Smith on board as a producer. However, some reports then indicated that the Smith project was an original sitcom possibly inspired by the Fresh Prince’s fish-out-of-water storyline.

The reboot was just one of many questions that were asked from Smith and Robbie in an interview.

What else did we learn? Well, Smith was a bit surprised by Robbie when they first met during her audition for their 2015 movie Focus.

The Aussie actress’s shoes were covered in mud and she “had shorts on and her hair wasn’t done,” Smith remembered. “I was like, ‘She don’t want this role at all.'”
