(Newser) – Will Smith has a message for fans in these dismal economic times: “You got to help somebody.” He issued his plea as he promoted his new film Seven Pounds at a rare Minnesota premiere, which also raised money for a charity that delivers holiday meals.

"It's a very difficult time right now for a lot of people," Smith told the Minneapolis Star Tribune. "Even if it's little, there's a necessity for us to help one another to have the quality of life we're all searching for."
