Actor Will Smith no longer punches people - because after training to box on the set of biopic ALI he's now terrified of seriously hurting somebody.

Smith starred as legendary fighter MOHAMMED ALI in the 2001 movie and has now learnt to respect his violent urges.

He says, "Like it says on my record (LOST AND FOUND), sometimes people mistake nice for soft.

"I haven't punched for years because I know how to punch now. If I punch someone I'm gonna hurt them bad. So I smack now, because a smack stings."
