Will loves golf. He's even got a hole in his garden.
Steven Spielberg called Will at his house to do "Men in Black", when Will was in his underwear. Will felt uncomfortable talking to a man of his caliber so he put Steven on hold while he got dressed. When he got back to the phone, Steven sent a helicopter to come get Will, so they could talk at his house.
Steven's kids sat with them during the whole "MiB" conversation. It was because they liked him so much Steven knew Will was such a star.
Men in Black made over 247 million dollars!
Will got $12 millions for ID4.
Will and Jada hasn't signed a prenop, and Jada thinks that's tough of him, considering his been through a divorce and Will has got over 100 million dollars.
Will met Jada for the first time on the set of "Fresh Prince". She was auditioning for his girlfriend, but she didn't get it... The producer said Will needed someone taller (Jada is just 5'0 feet), Jada was really angry and ran into Will on her way out. Will said "Hey, what's happening?" and Jada said "How are you doing?" and walked passed him. She was so mad she hardly noticed him. Not exactly love at first sight... But when his ex-wife Sheree Zampino left him in 1995 Jada helped him to the mourning, actually Jada was also mourning at the moment. The more time they spent together, the more their love grew.
They moved to Will's apartment, outside of Los Angeles. At the same time Will's career was really taking off with Independence Day.
Will was always going around saying: Hey, why don't we get married? but it took a long time before Jada felt ready, but she was ready in November and when Will asked her again she said yes right away.
Will loves cars. He owns several fast, cool sport cars, and when he has the opportunity he drives fast and a long distance .
One time, a couple of years ago, things went wrong. He was surprised by the police in what you can safely call way too fast. Luckily, he only got a ticket.
He is going to own his own hotel in Philly called Hotel W and will be open to the public in the year 2002.
Will is wearing green Adidas Forum MID's on the cover of Willenium.
It says that Will and Jada were the directors on the So Fresh video, but Will admits that Jada was really the only one who directed it.
Jada calls Will Captain Correction because he is known to correct people when they aren't using proper grammar. This is probably because Will and his siblings weren't allowed to use slang while they were growing up.
Will's 1st rap song (written when he was 12) goes like this:
At the age of 1
I had just begun
On my journey to the T-O-P
And at the age of 2
I was a hellified huh MC.
Will 1st started out as a rapper with profane and obscene lyrics. But when his grandmother found and read his rap notebook one day, she wrote him a message saying:
Truly intelligent people do not have to use this type of language to express themselves.
Why don't you show the world that you are as smart as we all think you are.
Ever since then, Will has kept his lyrics clean.
Will's influences are his parents, Eddie Murphy, & Dr. J Irving.
Ready Rock C (who later became the Fresh Prince and Jazz's beat box) was Will's 1st rapping partner.
Will almost went bankrupt when he spent his money foolishy on cars, stereos, video games, & what not!
When Will 1st became famous, Jazz's mom asked Jazz and him to buy something for her. Will felt that he was too good to do her a favor and soon realized that his fame had gone to his head. Will then learned that fame didn't make him any better than anyone else and is now very down to earth.
Will appeared once on the TV show Blossom as himself and also made a cameo in A Thin Line Between Love and Hate (starring Martin Lawrence).
Will's favorite Fresh Prince episodes are Mistaken Identity and The Cold War. Will says that the cast finally clicked while they were filming The Cold War.
Will and his brother once built-what Will calls the Great Wall of Philly. Both of them had to restore an old brick wall that took them about 4 years to build. When they were done Will's dad told them not to let anyone tell them that they couldn't do something.
Will has never touched a drug because his dad would show him bums on the street and told Will that that's what happens to people who do drugs.
Will has 4 Rotweilers named Gracie, Zachy, Tyson, and Indo. Two of them were presents from Jay Leno.
After Will starred in Independence Day, he became a sex symbol. An old lady once came up to him and kissed him right on the lips, a girl asked him to sign her chest in New York, and another girl spotted him filming MIB while she was driving in her car, and ended up crashing, and ran after him for his autograph.
Will couldn't swim and faced his fear by jumping off a cliff near the ocean in Jamaica. (There were divers waiting to help him at the bottom).
Will owns 2 production companies called Will Smith Enterprises and Overbrook Productions (named after his high school).
Will and Jada aren't really big on celebrating holidays because they try to make every day as special as holidays.
Jazz used to be a bathroom D.J. He would take over the stage while the D.J. would take his break.
Will says some Dr. Seuss books like Hop on Pop are like rap if you read them in a certain way.
One day, Will was supposed to help his dad by holding a flashlight for him while he worked. Will hadn't gotten enough sleep the night before and was woken up by his screaming dad who had almost been electricuted. Will had dropped the flashlight while he'd been falling asleep. Ever since then, Will makes sure that he gets his full 8 hours of sleep every night.
