The Stars of 'Hitch'
Will Smith and Oprah
He played the greatest heavyweight champ, fought off aliens and saved the world from mass destruction. He is a box-office powerhouse and after today you'll call him Dr. Love. Get ready to take a ride on the love train!

In the romantic comedy Hitch, Will Smith stars as Alex "Hitch" Hitchens, a modern-day cupid who secretly coaches clueless men into landing the women of their dreams. It's a fun, heart-warming movie about dating and taking a chance on love.

Oprah: I heard that when you read the first line of the script you said, "Okay, I'm in."

Will: It was beautiful. The first line of the script is basic principles: "No matter what, no matter who, no matter when…Any man has a chance to sweep any woman off her feet—he just needs the right broom." I'm in. I'm in. I'm in…You know, it was the first script I read in a long time that didn't have a robot or an alien…it was such a departure for me.
