While filming Seven Pounds, Will did something he's never done before—shot a love scene with someone other than his wife! Before this, Will's only other love scene was with Jada in Ali.

On the first day of rehearsal, Rosario says Will peppered her with questions about what would make her the most comfortable and what he should wear. "[He said,] 'I don't want to be that guy with my hand on your thigh when the director says cut. I don't want to be that guy,'" she says. "Then he goes on to tell me, 'Could Jada be there?'"

Will isn't afraid to admit that he was terrified. "My worst nightmare is to have a woman that's around me feel like I disrespected her," he says.

Rosario says she spoke with Jada, who encouraged her husband to go for it. "She was like, 'Don't make me look bad. You better bring it,'" Rosario says.
