Will Smith said life has never been better as he dazzled fans at the premiere of Men In Black 3 in Leicester Square, London.

The Hollywood actor signed autographs and posed for pictures at the event.

Smith said the film - which sees him reunited with Tommy Lee Jones - was the “most unique” he had ever been in.

He said: “There’s something about the idea that is a little twisted and little off, you never say ‘oh yeah that movie is just like Men In Black, there’s really nothing that’s just like Men In Black.

“So I enjoy being in something that I really believe will go down in the history of Hollywood, at least, as a really iconic film.”

The film sees Smith’s character travel back in time to the 1960s to prevent an alien assassinating his colleague - played in the flashback scenes by Josh Brolin.

But despite the time-travelling theme, Smith said he would not be tempted to try and re-write history.

He said: “I’m very happy with my life and my career right now. Things are better than they have ever been so I wouldn’t try to go back and mess it all up”.

Men in Black 3 hits cinemas on Friday May 25.
