Facts about Will Smith
Biography for Will SmithWillard Christopher "Will" Smith, Jr. (born sep. 25, 1968 (49 years ago)) is an American actor, movie producer and rapper. He has enjoyed success in music, TV and film. Newsweek has called him the most powerful actor on the planet. Smith has been nominated for four Golden Globes, two Academy Awards, and has won multiple Grammys.
Smith rose to fame as a rapper under the name The Fresh Prince in the late 1980 (37 years ago) and his role in the TV series The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. His most notable movies include Bad Boys and its sequel; Men in Black and its sequel; Independence Day; I, Robot; Ali; The Pursuit of Happyness; I Am Legend; Hancock; and Seven Pounds. He is the only actor in history to have eight consecutive movies gross over $100 million in the domestic box office as well as being the only actor to have eight consecutive movies open at #1 on the domestic box office as a Lead Actor.
Family and early lifeSmith, an African American, was born and raised in West Philadelphia and Germantown in Northwest Philadelphia. His mother, Caroline (née Bright), was a school administrator who worked for the Philadelphia school board, and his father, Willard Christopher Smith, Sr., was a refrigeration engineer. He was raised Baptist. His parents separated when he was thirteen and divorced when he was thirty-two. Smith's charming and sly demeanor in school resulted in the nickname "Prince", which eventually turned into the "Fresh Prince". While still in his teens, Smith began rapping and eventually began collaborating with Jeff Townes (a.k.a. DJ Jazzy Jeff), whom he met at a party. He attended Overbrook High School in West Philadelphia. DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince was born with Smith handling the rhymes and Townes overseeing the mastery of mixing and scratching—the combination was a pop and hip-hop hit during the 1980 (37 years ago) and early 1990 (27 years ago).
While it is widely reported that Smith turned down a scholarship to attend the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), he never applied to MIT, although he was admitted to a "pre-engineering program" there. According to Smith, "My mother, who worked for the School Board of Philadelphia, had a friend who was the admissions officer at MIT. I had pretty high SAT scores and they needed black kids, so I probably could have gotten in. But I had no intention of going to college."
Personal lifeSmith was raised by his parents, Willard and Caroline, in West Philadelphia. Smith credits his father's dedication when discussing his own involvement in the lives of his three children: "I look at my father and how he was able to keep four kids fed and clothed and still managed to find time to spend with us." Smith married Sheree Zampino in 1992 (25 years ago). They had a son, Willard Christopher Smith III, also known as "Trey", but divorced in 1995 (22 years ago). Trey appeared in his father's music video for the 1998 (19 years ago) single "Just The Two Of Us". Smith married actress Jada Pinkett in 1997 (20 years ago). Together they have had two children: Jaden Christopher Syre (born 1998 (19 years ago)), his co-star in The Pursuit of Happyness, and Willow Camille Reign, who appeared as his daughter in "I Am Legend" (born 2000 (17 years ago)). Along with his brother, Harry Smith, he owns Treyball Development Inc., a Beverly Hills-based company named after his first son.
Smith has been consistently listed in Fortune Magazine's "Richest 40" list of the forty wealthiest Americans under the age of 40. Smith and his family reside on Star Island in Miami Beach, Florida and in Los Angeles, Stockholm, Sweden and Philadelphia. Smith donated a large amount of money to assist Katrina victims. Smith also donated $4,600 to the presidential campaign of Democrat Barack Obama.
