Washington (ANI): Hollywood actor Will Smith was so thrilled and excited over Barack Obama's historic win that he didn't touch a drop of alcohol in a bid to remember every moment of the evening. The Men in Black actor knew history would be made when America went to the polls last month and he deliberately avoided drinking so he could enjoy it even more.
"I wanted to be totally sober. I wanted to see and feel and remember everything. The whole family was there," Contactmusic quoted Will Smith, as telling USA Today. "It was really fantastic either way I knew it would be a historical evening. I wanted to be there and be aware," he added.
Obama had many celebrity supporters including Will Smith, Matt Damon, Ben Affleck and many more.
