Will Smith isn't just an accomplished actor, he's also a talented storyteller. It took a strange series of events involving unpaid taxes, a wise ex-girlfriend, and a party in the Hollywood Hills for Smith to land his iconic television role.
It's fascinating to hear him open up about the quirks of being penniless, yet famous. There's also an important lesson to be learned that Smith tries to hammer home in the video: saying yes at the right time and seizing an opportunity while you have the chance to can change your entire life. Imagine 90's television without The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air!
