Will Smith is filming Men In Black 3 in New York City but his biggest fight so far isn’t with any aliens. The megastar has imported a trailer to match his bank account that has residents and business owners of the Soho neighborhood screaming “your house is too damn high!”
To call the mobile living quarters “trailers” is a gross understatement. The 1,150 square feet living unit is larger than most apartments in the city and rents for $9,000 a week. The specially designed ride called “The Heat” has a lounge, marble floors, offices for his assistants and a movie room with a 100-inch screen. It measures about 53 feet long, has 22 wheels and weighs in at around 30 tons.
After complaints Mayor Bloomberg had Mr. Smith move his trailers to a parking lot about a mile away. Smith laughed off the controversy at first but his assistants say that he is not too pleased with having to relocate.
