Move over, Kanye West!
It looks like another A-list celebrity is innerested in entering politics in the near future. In an interview for the Hollywood Reporter‘s podcast titled Awards Chatter, Will Smith revealed he has thought about perhaps throwing himself into the politics game.
The 47-year-old shared:
“As I look at the political landscape, I think that there might be a future out there for me. They might need me out there.”
Well that’s confident. Still, we have a feeling the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air alum would have a better chance at becoming president over Yeezus. Sorry, Kim Kardashian West!
Though, we shouldn’t be too shocked by the Oscar nominee’s admission as he’s been dedicated to making a positive difference through his art — so running for office could be the obvious next step.
“I’m a climber, so if I see a mountain, I have to climb it. I’m not a camper; I don’t like hanging in one place too long. So I think, at this point, I’m elevating my ability to be useful in the world. I think that that’s what my grandmother always hoped, that I would make myself useful to people in this lifetime.”
Not mention it seems that several issues our country is facing has inspired the entertainment powerhouse to consider the career move.
“This is the first year that I’ve been incensed to a level that I can’t sleep, you know? So I’m feeling that at some point, in the near future, I will have to lend my voice to the conversation in a somewhat different way.”
What do YOU think?! Would the Smith family be right at home in the White House??
