Mr. July

There are two kinds of people in the world.  Those who LOVE Will Smith and those who are wrong! He is my absolute favorite because talent, good looks, brains, loyalty and from all appearances a very nice guy (or he has a fantastic publicity agent) and he is over 40!

Will Smith is called Mr. July because
his blockbuster films are usually released in the summer.
Bad Boys (1995)
Independence Day (1996)
Men in Black (1997)
Enemy of the State (1998)
Ali (2001)
I Robot (2004)
Hitch (2005)
The Pursuit of Happyness (2006)
Hancock (2008)
After Earth (2013) 



At 16, Smith met a DJ Jazzy Jeff at a party.

In 1990, The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air debuted.


So if you stay ready,
you ain't gotta get ready,
and that is how I run my life.

He has been married to actress Jada Pinkett Smith since 1997.
(She tried out for the role of his girlfriend on
“The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.”)

“I hate the image of black men as promiscuous
and unable to control themselves sexually.
I don’t like that image.”

He won his first Grammy in 1989 for “Parent’s Just Don’t Understand.”

He was a millionaire before he turned 18.

Money and success don't change people;
they merely amplify what is already there.

His first big acting role was in 1993. 
He played a gay swindler in Six Degrees of Separation.

He is the first hip-hop artist to be nominated for an Academy Award.

  “I belong to no organized party. I am a Democrat.”

“I don’t make jokes.
I just watch the government and report the facts.”

Grammy Awards:
1988 Parents Just Don’t Understand
1992 Summertime
1998 Men in Black
1999 Gettin’ Jiggy Wit It

6 American Music Awards

Oscar Nomination for
Ali  2002 and The Pursuit of Happyness 2007

I want the world to be better because I was here.

He speaks fluent Spanish. 

“Everybody is ignorant, only on different subjects.”

 He said that in his whole career,
he most regrets turning down the part of Neo in "The Matrix"
(I regret that too.  He would have been fantastic!)

“There is no reason to have a plan B because it’ll distract your plan A.”

I try to speak my points of view about black America,
and how I feel about black men
and the role that black men should play in their lives with their children
 and in their lives with their women.”
