Will Smith, Jada Pinkett Smith

Lucky for Will Smith, there was no red carpet kiss snafu at the Men and Black 3 premiere, but that doesn't mean E!'s own Jason Kennedy and Alicia Quarles didn't have a little fun with our alien-fighting friend!

The man in plaid looked as handsome as ever on the red carpet with his beautiful wife Jada Pinkett Smith and adorable kiddos Jaden and Willow in tow at New York's Ziegfeld Theatre.

So, what's it like being the man, the myth, the legend behind the super successful franchise? And which body part was Will worried about when the alien-fighting flick goes into 3-D mode?

His ears!

"I was very concerned about how these things were going to look in 3-D," Will Smith told E! News as he gave his ears a wiggle. "It looks all right. It worked out."

How modest of you, Will! It's been 15 years since Men in Black first hit the big screen (can you believe it?!), but Smith looks just as good as when he first started getting in on all the extraterrestrial action.

But there's someone else who has Will smiling these days—none other than Smith family pal Justin Bieber, who has a cameo in the action flick.

"Bieber is my man. That kid is really talented," Will gushed to Alicia and Jason. "He is so far beyond what people know. He can play about five different instruments. His mind is always so thinking of ideas he can't even sleep."

Awww. Can't you just feel the love between these two famous friends? Perhaps we can expect a duo with the Biebs and Willow next?!

Here's hoping! But in the meantime, we must take a moment to admire Will's success—he's the face behind the highly successful franchise and it's clear he's so passionate about the long-time project.

"I love Agent J—I love his bravery," Smith said of his character. "This is a character whose life was based on the truth and he was willing to give us everything to know the truth. I'm not that brave."

Despite shooting delays, script tweaks and a reported budged of $250 million, the film is well on its way to becoming a box-office hit, and Will takes every moment to appreciate his success. 

"I enjoy the gifts that I have. At the end of the day, I'm a dude from Philly who didn't go to college, traveling the world making movies," Will said. "I'm blessed and I don't got nothing to complain about."

Humble and handsome—let's get an extraterrestrial cheers to that!
