Will Smith has some tough but fair advice for his younger self.

The actor, who plays both a younger and older version of the same character in his new movie Gemini Man, revealed those wise words when Fox Chicago reporter Jake Hamilton asked him a two-part question at the film’s premiere: What movie set from his past would he like to revisit, and what would he tell his former self.

“I’d go back to the Wild Wild West [set] and I would say, ‘Asshole, why didn’t you do The Matrix?” Smith joked.

Smith famously passed on starring in 1999’s mega-blockbuster The Matrix in favor of Wild Wild West, which flopped with critics and the at box office.

In the Matrix , the Agents interrogate Morpheus to learn his access codes to the mainframe computer in Zion. In 1996 the Wachowskis pitched the role of Neo to Will Smith . Smith explained on his YouTube channel that the idea was for him to be Neo, while Morpheus was to be played by Val Kilmer.

Smith discussed his decision to pass on The Matrix earlier this year, explaining on his YouTube channel that he was less than impressed after meeting with the Wachowski siblings, the filmmakers behind the film. Smith added that it’s all for the best, complimenting Matrix stars Reeves and Laurence Fishburne’s performances.

That point was driven home with a sledgehammer last season, when McDavid, Leon Draisaitl and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins all had career seasons, yet the Oilers were never a legitimate playoff threat after about mid-February.
