Will Smith Updates: The Hollywood star, 53, said he was “in a downward spiral” following a fight on a radio station before starring in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Smith recalled the incident during a sit-in interview with Oprah Winfrey for his Apple TV + series while promoting his telling memoir.
In the preview clip of The Oprah Conversation, Winfrey said: So before the new Prince Bel-Air, I think people will be surprised, this is the first time, I realized that you have basically lost everything.
The government confiscated your car, took it to your house, and you were imprisoned. You actually describe it in two words, ‘Rock Bottom.’ What is the root of that fall, Will? The life lesson did you learn from it?
Smith, who won a Grammy Award in 1989, starred in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air the following year: When it rains, it pours. So Charlie punches the guy who got into a fight at the radio station and jailed me, so the money is gone, the car is gone.
I’m lying on the floor in a prison cell, you’re kidding me!
I won the Grammy Award eight months ago. Like, what’s going on? It’s the spiral when it starts to go the other way. Like this, sometimes you have to get out of the way and wait until the downward spiral stops.
Smith‘s memoir reveals that he fell in love with a fellow actor when he married his first wife, Sherry Zambino. In a statement released by People magazine, the actor said that he had feelings for actress Stockard Channing during the filming of the 1993 film Six Degrees of Separation.
Smith married Zambino in 1992-1995 and his current wife, Jada Pinkett, married Smith in 1997.
The Will Smith episode of The Oprah Conversation is being streamed on Apple TV +.
Let’s look at an amazing fact about Will Smith:
Before becoming an actor, Will Smith aspired to make it into a rapper. Will, who was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, was born where he said “everyone is a rapper”.
There is no doubt that the environment and influence of his hometown certainly inspired his decision to venture into the music scene. Even though he is young, his dreams are big and his successes to follow will be even bigger.
Jeff Downs, a longtime collaborator, and good friend is also known as DJ Josie Jeff at the age of 16, and it soon became clear that the two would do great things together. They started working on new music, breaking the giant debut single “Girls’ End Nothing But Trouble”.
This laid the foundation for the album Rock the House (1987), which really started his career. The album peaked at number 83 on the Billboard Top 200, and just before his eighteenth birthday, Will was a millionaire!
