Will Smith has stunned the world by declaring that even Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler was essentially a "good" person.

The Men In Black star, 39, is determined to see the best in people, and is convinced the former German dictator did not fully understand the extent of the pain and suffering his actions would cause.

He says, "Even Hitler didn't wake up going, 'Let me do the most evil thing I can do today'.

"I think using a twisted, backwards logic, he set out to do what he thought was 'good'.

"Stuff like that just needs reprogramming."
