Will Smith clarifies Hitler remark


Actor Will Smith is angry that comments he made about Hitler in an interview were misinterpreted.

“Even Hitler didn’t wake up going, ‘Let me do the most evil thing I can do today,'” Smith told Scotland’s Daily Record in a wide-ranging interview. “I think he woke up in the morning and using a twisted, backwards logic, he set out to do what he thought was ‘good.’ Stuff like that just needs reprogramming.”

Gossip Web sites were quick to post the comments and attack Smith for his statement, saying he believed that Hitler was good.

“I am incensed and infuriated to have to respond to such ludicrous misinterpretation,” Smith said in a statement. “Adolf Hitler was a vile, heinous vicious killer responsible for one of the greatest acts of evil committed on this planet.”

Smith is currently starring in the new movie “I am Legend.”
