In Tommy Davidson's memoir, Living in Color, he revealed that during the filming for the 1998 romantic comedy Woo, he went in for a kiss.

Further, Tommy Davidson mentioned how Will Smith confronted him in his trailer. Will told Tommy that he did not appreciate what happened on set but Tommy just goaded him on. The situation then escalated as the two argued with each other and Tommy states that their fight might have even turned physical. However, Jada Pinkett entered the trailer just on time and prevented the two from fighting. 

Tommy Davidson stated that Will Smith went all gangsta on him, saying what he did was not cool. He added that there was a moment there when they might have come to blows. Tommy's reactive fight-or-flight instinct was triggered and he could have exploded. Thankfully, Jada ended their argument before it turned into a fistfight.

Tommy revealed that Jada was unprepared for the kissing scene as they had never rehearsed for it. While Tommy had talked about the scene with the filmmakers, he never discussed it with his co-star. He added that he did not think it was all that big of a deal which is why he did not think that kissing scenes needed to be rehearsed.
