The 2016 NFL Playoffs begins this weekend, we believe that Will Smith will not be watching any of the games.

According to Hello Beautiful, during a press conference in New York for his starring role in Concussion, Smith admitted that he hasn’t watched a game this season.  He isn’t avoiding football all together, “I think it is beautiful,” he explained. “You can’t unsee the beauty.”

After stepping into the role of  Dr. Bennet Omalu, who discovered a hidden disease and made his mission to publicize “CTE“, the story line of movie seemed to change the way Smith sees football players today. “You can’t not see the repetitive sub-concusive blows’ that occur when heads bump and bodies collide on the field,” he said.

In 2015, a study revealed 87 out of 91 former NFL players tested positive for CTE.

Concussion is being hailed as a bonafide Oscar contender, with Will Smith a shoo-in for Best Actor.
