Biography of Will Smith

Willard Christopher “Will” Smith, Jr., an American actor, film producer, and rapper, is estimated to have a net worth of $260 million. Will Smith qualifies as an original “Renaissance man” due to his illustrious success in numerous spheres of the entertainment industry. Smith amassed a million-dollar fortune before the age of twenty.

Although Smith initially gained prominence as the rap artist Fresh Prince (with constant MTV airplay and blockbuster record sales), he has established himself as an A-list Hollywood actor in successive years, unequivocally demonstrating his commercial viability and broad appeal to a diverse cross-section of viewers. Forbes estimated his net worth at $188 million in 2004. As of Hancock (2008), he holds the record for the most consecutive $100 million-grossing films as an actor.

Smith returns to the Forbes list in 2011 – this time as Agent J. Smith in Men in Black III. He dropped off the list in 2010 after taking time off to nurture his children’s budding careers, Jaden Smith and Willow Smith. Jaden starred in Smith’s remake of The Karate Kid (which grossed $360 million). Smith collaborated with Willow on her chart-topping song “Whip My Hair.” The song’s video has been viewed over 11 million times.

Smith was born in Philadelphia on September 25, 1968. Smith was inducted into the Guinness Book of World Records in 2005 for attending three premieres in 24 hours. In 1997, Smith married actress Jada Pinkett-Smith. They have two children together: Jaden Christopher Syre (born 1998), who co-starred with him in The Pursuit of Happiness, and Willow Camille Reign (born 2000). Trey (born 1992) was his only child with ex-wife Sheree Ciampino.

Private Life

Will has two children with Jada Pinkett Smith, to whom he has been married since 1997. Their children, Jaden Smith, and Willow Smith are both actors. Additionally, he and his first wife, Sheree Amino, have a son named Trey.

Star of the Cinema

Will was paid $500,000 in 1993 to star in “Six Degrees of Separation,” for which he received critical acclaim.

His film career took off in a big way in 1995, when he earned $2 million for co-starring in the hit-action comedy “Bad Boys.” Years later, he earned $20 million for his role in the sequel.
