In a surprise visit, Hollywood star and rapper Will Smith on Thursday arrived in Jerusalem, where he toured the Old City and prayed at the Western Wall.

“I’m chilling at the Western Wall,” Smith said, adding that he was “honored to be here” and calling the holy site a “very spiritual, very powerful place.”

Smith, the star of the television series “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” and films such as “Men in Black,” apparently popped over from neighboring Jordan where he is filming a remake of the Disney classic “Aladdin.”

He was accompanied by several of the cast members and also visited the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.
