Will Smith also won a SAG Award, for his role in King Richard. After winning, Smith said, “I’ve played real-life characters a couple of times… It holds an extra burden because when I play someone everyone is going to assume that that’s the real story and that’s how it was. There’s an awful couple of weeks when the movie’s finished and you know the family is going to start to see it. There’s an emotional release when people feel honored when you tell a true story.”
