In the newly-released King Richard, Will Smith portrays Richard Williams, the father of Venus and Serena Williams, who helped train the pair in their early days of playing tennis.
When the film was released, it received positive reviews from critics, with particular praise for Smith. Our own PureWow editor said that the Hitch actor delivered an “Oscar-worthy performance.”
Now, a recent interview with PopSugar revealed how the Williams sisters really felt about Smith's performance, and it seems they were very pleased with his work.
Venus talked with the publication, saying, “There are so many special moments throughout the film, but one of the highlights of seeing King Richard is Will Smith's portrayal of our father.”
