LONDON (UPI) -- Actor Will Smith says he will reform healthcare and reduce homelessness when he fulfills his fantasy of becoming president of the United States.
"I always wanted to be the first black president but Barack Obama stole my idea. That's OK with me. Barack can go first and then I'll take my turn," Smith said in a nod to Obama, a Democratic presidential hopeful and senator from Illinois.
Smith, 39, was in England to promote his movie "I Am Legend," in which he survives a man-made plague, the Daily Mail reported Sunday.
Smith, a Democrat, said he has dreamed since childhood of being president and would tackle urgent social issues such as healthcare and basic shelter for everyone -- issues, Smith said, have been ignored by President George Bush.
"I don't believe he is an evil man," Smith said of Bush. "I just think he has an unevolved perspective."
