Earlier in the evening, Will, 53, radiated charisma as he went on stage to read an excerpt from his book alongside Idris Elba, after surprising fans with his smooth complexion during a performance on The One Show.

Idris admitted he was only ready for chapter six of Will’s book after it was released last Tuesday at the event to publish the article, according to The Independent.

The film is based on the life of Richard Williams, played by Will, who helped his daughters, Serena and Venus Williams, navigate their early lives as professional athletes.

When he spoke to hosts Zoe Ball and Jermaine Jenas on The One Show on Thursday, Will revealed how Serena and Venus initially did not give the film their blessing.

He said: ‘Venus and Serena, when the idea came up, they were a little hesitant and they said they would produce the movie but would wait until they saw the movie until they decided to put their names on it …

“But they were so honored that they agreed to put their names on the film. And when you make a film like this, there really is only one audience, and that’s the people you portray …

‘And when they walked out of that theater and agreed to put their names on this film, it was one of the highest points of my career.’

Will also appeared on the TV show Lorraine on Thursday morning and admitted that he is unsure if Serena and Venus’ father has seen the film.

‘He’s not feeling very well. We do not know if he has not seen the movie, but Serena said it would be unlike him if he did not see it, he said.
