BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show host, Nick Grimshaw has recently went at Will Smith for being “fake nice.”

In an interview with The Sunday Times magazine, the broadcaster, shared his thoughts about some of the famous guests he has interviewed throughout the years, including Angelina Jolie, Kim Kardashian West and Will Smith, who he called “fake.”

“He was high-fiving the receptionist and saying, ‘You’re the best receptionist ever,'” Grimshaw said. “High-fiving the phone person and saying, ‘You’d better answer those phones!’ which I thought was a tad patronizing.

“Coming into an office and saying, ‘Wow, you answer phones!’ It seemed a bit self-aware, like, ‘I’m really famous and you’re really excited that I’ve acknowledged you.'”

Grimshaw is set to leave Radio 1 Breakfast Show in September due to bad ratings.
