AceShowbiz - BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show host Nick Grimshaw has slammed Will Smith for being "fake nice".
In an interview with The Sunday Times magazine, the broadcaster, who is famous for his friendships with celebrities including Kate Moss, Lily Allen, and Harry Styles, shared his thoughts about some of the A-list guests he interviewed during his six years on the show, including Angelina Jolie, Kim Kardashian West and rapper and actor Will, 49, who he dubbed "fake".
"He was high-fiving the receptionist and saying, 'You're the best receptionist ever,'" he told the publication. "High-fiving the phone person and saying, 'You'd better answer those phones!' which I thought was a tad patronising.
"Coming into an office and saying, 'Wow, you answer phones!' It seemed a bit self-aware, like, 'I'm really famous and you're really excited that I've acknowledged you.'"
The 33-year-old made his comments as he prepares to exit the Radio 1 Breakfast Show in September amid falling ratings. He will be replaced by Greg James.
Will wasn't the only star to come in for criticism from Grimshaw, who took over the breakfast show from Chris Moyles in 2012. He said actress Angelina was "cold" but admitted he didn't expect to like Kim Kardashian West because he found her reality TV show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, "a bit rubbish", but when he met her she was genuinely charming.
"She wasn't trying to be nice, she was just a sweet, pretty girl; a bit airheady and taking pictures of herself, which is what she is selling," he gushed. "It isn't an act."
During the interview, Grimshaw, who will be moving to a drivetime slot on the radio network, also recalled some of his favourite moments as Radio 1's Breakfast Show host, such as when rapper Stormzy arrived at the BBC offices carrying 20 pizzas for staff, and co-hosting the show with Harry Styles after pulling an all-nighter following the BRIT Awards in 2013.
