Wow. That was really interesting! Sounds like Will's infamous battles creatively.. his best movies have been with directors who have argued back with him! Hitch/Bad Boys.. the guys that just do what Will wants end up making poor movies After Earth/7 Pounds

That scene sounds really interesting; I'd love to see it. It's important to know that we haven't heard FP's side of the story. On top of that, he was in a very different place in his career and mind state. I admire how he stood up for himself, whether or not his opinion of the scene was correct.

p.s. I think Seven Pounds is a great and original movie! I also don't think After Earth was that bad....he should have just had another project coming out within a few months to counter the dry role he played in it.

Seven Pounds got panned by critics, and i wasn't overly keen on it on first watch. But it has grown on me over the years. The whole story is very ant-Hollywood. But i enjoy the characters in it, and Rosario Dawson especially.

As for that clip. Sounds like Will learnt lessons from this. Yes he stood for what he believed was right, but at the end of the day he was just an actor in a TV production, even if he was the main star. Gotta let people do their job.
