Will Smith is a popular American actor, rapper, and songwriter. Millions around the world love him, and he’s unarguably been one of the most friendly actors throughout his acting career.
Now at 50 years old, Will Smith’s net worth is estimated at around $350 million, making him one of the richest stars in the world.
Will Smith was born in Philadelphia town, Pennsylvania, on the 25th of September 1968. Smith’s mother was a school board director, and his father a refrigerator engineer.
He has three other siblings; his older sister Pamela and younger twins Ellen and Harry.
Smith went to attend Overbrook High School and did get awarded a scholarship at MIT, which he reached down because he had no intention of going to college. He desired to become a rapper, and that’s exactly what he set out to do.
Smith’s career started out by setting the rap group named ‘DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince’ with his best friend Jeffrey Townes in the late ’80s. They had numerous famous hits, including ‘Summertime’ and the ‘Parents Just, Don’t Understand.’
The obstacle came when Will started wasting a lot of money and ended racking up a tax bill of $2.8 million. The IRS took multiple possessions of Smith’s, and it was at that point he was approached about the making of the sitcom that is ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’.
Needing capital, and open to trying new ideas, Smith accepted the chance, and the show was a huge victory. For a short while, 25% of his pay-cheque from the production was going straight to the IRS.
After performing in the show, he starred in numerous films in the ’90s, including Men in Black, Six Degrees of Separation, Bad Boys, and Enemy of the State.
Since that time, Will Smith has broken acting records, performed in some of the most successful movies worldwide, and has become one of the highest-paid performers in the world.
Smith has served with some of the best actors in the movie industry, including Jason Bateman, Margot Robbie, Martin Lawrence, and his very own son Jaden Smith.
