    Will Smith may get eben more props than he probably deserves, but he has gone through a lot growing up and has turned out to be a very descent person, does not matter if he is Bill Gates rich or if he is homeless. I am sure he still has sad memories of what has gone on in the back of his mind. Plus, actors singers and athletes are going to get the fame, just because that is the way society is, basically meaning Will Smith will retain that.

    Smith is just another overrated egomaniac who used his so-called "talent" to promote his own publicity. I don't admire anyone who pretends to be another person. I know he such a postive "role model" to the black community, and I'm sure "~Alpha Female~" is steaming right about now with the negative comments on this page. Good thing, too. If the person in Charlotte was another overrated pretender, Brad Pitt, she would not comment due to an obvious reason. Can anyone guess what that is?

    Thank You WOLFGANG...I take that as a compliment even if it wasn't directed towards me:) My heroes have never been actors...but as hard as I have worked for my education and home...I should have been theirs!

    I will never understand why some people treat these actors like they are a god. A good Teacher, Doctor , Police Officer, Nurse, ect is worth the pay any day.

    Neato...first of all...a marriage is a union between two people...not two people and sometimes that cute guy or that pretty girl. I'm looking out for black females. If you aren't a black female...then sleep with as many people as you want. It's black women from ages 25-34 i'm worried about. These people with this swinging life styles...do your thing...in a few years we won't be having this conversation because you'll be 6 feet under or on lamivudine, Emtriva, Epivir, Epzicom, Retrovir, Trizivir, Truvada, Videx, Viread, Zerit, Ziagen, Racivir,..for AIDS, your be to weak to get on the computer to tell me I was right! Enjoy yourselves!

    jeffrey....thank you for asking. Will Smith was on a BET news show called Jeff Johnson were he admitted it. He said it was natural to want to sleep with other people. How him and Jada make their marriage work is...if they see someone they want to sleep with they tell the other spouse then they sleep with this outside person. Just google Will Smith and open marriage....you will find more interviews and video clips of Smith talking about it. Some are a little graphic so make sure your kids aren't looking over your shoulder.

    Alpha Female, how can it be considered "cheating" when both parties are ok with it.

    Will Smith couldn't act his way out of a wet paper bag. He was good in one role: The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, because it was an awful show. Another no talent rapper taking film roles away from folks with true talent.
