What scandal? Will Smith and Margot Robbie have stepped out together for the first time on Wednesday, Nov. 20, two weeks after rumors surfaced that the two were having an affair. The pals looked chummy as ever as they posed for pictures during the first photo call for their film Focus at El Zanjon in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

All smiles, Smith, 45, and Robbie, 23, had their arms linked behind each other's backs as they attended a press conference for the film. The stunning Australian actress donned a black silk top and flowing white pants for the big event. She also kept her long locks down and finished off the chic look with simple, silver stud earring. Meanwhile, Smith wore tight-fitting jeans and a colorful orange sweater. The two actors were joined by costars Rodrigo Santoro and Gerald McRaney.

Earlier this month, rumors surfaced that Smith cheated on his wife of 16 years Jada Pinkett Smith with Robbie during a playful photo booth session at the film's wrap party. (In one shot, father of three Smith and Robbie appeared half-naked.) But alas, Robbie was quick to debunk any such fling.

"Been working nonstop, just catching my breath. There's absolutely no truth to the ridiculous rumor in Star mag. It's disappointing that goofing around on set could be taken so out of context," she tweeted on Nov. 8.

"They're not hooking up," an insider told Us Weekly. "That was a photo booth on set that the producers got for everyone. It was the last day of filming and everyone was taking pictures. They were just goofing around. Will is just like that. There's nothing more to it."

As for Smith's marriage with Pinkett? "Everything with them is great," a second source added. 

Focus was to originally have starred Ben Affleck and Kristen Stewart in Smith and Robbie's roles, respectively, before both stars pulled out of the comedy.
