Will Smith’s Career Rollercoaster: A Bright Future in Politics?

Will Smith’s Career Rollercoaster: A Bright Future in Politics?
Twenty years ago, Will Smith announced he’d love to become president. And why not? He’d won at everything else. At 12, he formed a rap duo that made him a teenage millionaire. By 23, he was a sitcom star. Now, he was 26 and his stunning hit streak of Bad Boys, Independence Day and Men in Black had made him the most likable movie star in the world. The U.S. Presidency would simply be his fourth career—or maybe fifth. “Give me 10 years and I’ll make it,” said Smith, “provided I can squeeze in an NBA championship before that.”

He was kidding, and he wasn’t. Since then, Smith has floated running for president every few years. (He dropped his basketball dreams pretty quick.) In 1999, the Clintons invited him to sleep in the Lincoln bedroom. “I told Bill that he should keep my room warm,” said Smith. “That might sound foolish to some,” he later told

The Girls Trip actress, 45, brought up the topic while taking a question from a caller. "The craziest rumor? That Will and I are swingers," she said. "That's the craziest one. It’s constant."

She added: “And I’m like, 'Yo, I wish!'"

Jada and the Suicide Squad actor, 48, have been together for 23 years and are parents of son Jaden, 19, and daughter Willow, 16. (The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air alum is also dad of son Trey, 24, from a previous relationship.)

2017-07-20T06:55:08-07:00Jada Pinkett Smith Was a Drug Dealer

Jada Pinkett Smith revealed that she was dealing drugs when she met close friend Tupac Shakur for the first time.

The “Girls Trip” actress opened up on SiriusXM’s “Sway in The Morning” about her relationship with the late rapper, saying, “It’s kind of hard because I haven’t really told the whole story. One of the things that’s very interesting that I’ve never really said before is that when I first met Pac, I was a drug dealer.”

“That’s how we started,” she said on Wednesday, “Then as I was coming out, something very bad happened to me. As I was coming out of the life, he was coming more into the life.”

Tupac was gunned down in 1996, the year before Pinkett Smith tied the knot with current husband Will Smith.

'Snowfall': Everything You Need to Know About FX's Origins-of-Crack Drama

It's been 26 years since John Singleton shook up Hollywood with Boyz n the Hood, his feature film debut and a semi-autobiographical story about a Crenshaw teenager trying to live an ordinary life during the height of the Crips/Bloods gang war. Now, the first African-American ever nominated for a Best Director Oscar revisits the crime-ridden Los Angeles he once observed first-hand – and offers a larger, much-needed historical context that helped shape those mean streets.

Singleton's new FX show Snowfall (which debuts on July 5th) follows Franklin Saint (Damson Idris), an ambitious L.

Jimmy Iovine, Director Allen Hughes Reflect On '90s Culture at 'Defiant Ones' Premiere

Instead of using a typical red carpet, the Los Angeles premiere of HBO’s four-part documentary, The Defiant Ones, opted for something a little different — a carpet with what looked like black and grey soundwaves. The two subjects of the show, record producer Jimmy Iovine and rapper-producer Dr. Dre, made names for themselves by being different, and their storied partnership was the subject of reflection throughout Thursday night.

“The ‘90s was probably the last hurrah of great recording artists,” said Defiant Ones director Allen Hughes (Menace II Society, The Book of Eli, Dr. Dre’s "I Need a Doctor" music video)....

Why Noel Clarke's 'hood' trilogy remains a vital snapshot of Britain

As Brotherhood hits cinemas, it’s time to say goodbye to a series that represented urban youth culture in an important and reflective way

When Kidulthood came out in 2006, I was 15 years old and it felt like a defining moment. Other cities had their representation of youth culture just over a decade before, in 1995. In Paris it was La Haine and in New York it was Kids. Before that, Boyz n the Hood and Menace II Society had paved the way for raw and gritty films that dealt with violence, social issues and navigating the road to adulthood.

Shooting While Skating: Dp Steve Holleran on The Land

In the opening scene of The Land, an unseen guidance counselor lays out possible futures for the film’s four high school protagonists. It’s lives as mechanics and welders, blue-collar jobs that once promised entrance into a thriving middle class that no longer exists. With dreams of escaping the urban decay of Cleveland as sponsored skateboarders, the boys instead chose a less legal path. And anyone familiar with the “at-risk youth” movies of the 1990s – from Boyz n the Hood and Menace II Society to Kids, Hurricane Streets, Juice, and Straight Out of Brooklyn – knows that path doesn’t end […]
