We weren’t expecting this admission from Will Smith!
According to Will, an upsetting incident with a high school girlfriend motivated him to pursue a bangin’ career in entertainment.
Wow, this situation must have been quite traumatizing. While we’re sad for Smith’s teenage broken heart, we’d love the chance to thank this mystery girl for gifting us with the Fresh Prince!
So, what went down?
“When I was 15, my girlfriend cheated on me. And from that moment, in this bizarre psychological twist, I wanted to be the most famous entertainer on Earth.”
Ha! “Most famous entertainer”? Way to shoot for the stars, Will!
The father of three added:
“I believed that your girlfriend couldn’t cheat on you. It’s that really bizarre psychological leap. I’m always looking for that in my characters: What’s the bizarre psychological leap they make based on some trauma?”
Well, whatever it takes to get motivated, right? We wonder if the actor gave the same advice to Jaden Smith after he reportedly split from Kylie Jenner!
On another note, we’re SO curious as to what Smith’s ex is thinking right about now.
