Will Smith is one of Hollywood’s great stars, despite not having the best moment of fame after he slapped Chris Rock at the Oscars. Since then he’s tried to move on with his life and his career, and now, in conversation with Kevin Hart, he looks back at some of his work over the decades he’s been working on, And says he has some regrets for forcing his sons Jaden and Willow Smith into fame.
In 2010, Will Smith’s children became the rising stars of Hollywood. The young man debuted as the lead actor in the remake of The Karate Kid, while the girl rose to fame with her song “Whip My Hair”, which went platinum. At the time, the ‘Soy Leyenda’ star was determined to make her a celebrity at all costs, but now, 13 years later, she regrets her decision.
In conversation with Kevin Hart, Will Smith admits that he tried to build the family of his dreams, fueled by his desire to overcome his past, and be a better father than his father, who was an abuser. However, he realized that he was behaving more like a manager than a father, and this had a negative effect on family happiness and relationships. Famous recalls, “Nobody was happy in my family. Nobody wanted to be a member of the platoon.”
The burden of his own past was also heavily involved in these ambitious plans, the actor says, under the motto “I’m going to do better than my father.” “We’ve talked about it before: My father was an abuser… I told myself I’d never be able to have that kind of energy with my family, and I had a dream, one of that family. The idea I was building. Between 2010 and 2012 I had accomplished all my dreams. I had surpassed even my biggest dreams.” Will Smith admits that he was never unhappy, but admits that his way of leading those around him left a trail of resentment. Through this experience, He has learned to value the happiness and well-being of his family more than fame and success in show business.
