PURE BLISS

The Gulf Today - Time Out - - FILMS -

Like a scene out of a high-oc­tane ac­tion movie that he would star in, WILL SMITH cel­e­brated his 50th birth­day by suc­cess­fully bungee jump­ing from a he­li­copter near the Grand Canyon.

Cam­eras, which cap­tured the stunt for a livestream on YouTube , showed the ac­tor hooked to a har­ness and bungee cords dan­gling over a gorge in north­east­ern Ari­zona.

He de­scribed the ex­pe­ri­ence as go­ing “from pure ter­ror to ab­so­lute bliss.”

The en­tire event had the feel of a pol­ished episode of re­al­ity TV. Cam­era crews showed Smith, wife Jada Pin­kett Smith and his three chil­dren be­ing greeted by dozens of rel­a­tives and friends on a plat­form. The stunt was billed as a leap “in the heart of the Grand Canyon.” But the jump was out­side Grand Canyon Na­tional Park on the Navajo Na­tion. The tribe’s reser­va­tion bor­ders the east rim of the na­tional park.
