Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0761342656, Library Binding)As USA TODAY, The Nation's No. 1 Newspaper, puts it, "Will Smith . . . could film himself painting a fence and it would open at No. 1." Whether he's blasting away at bad guys or romancing the heroine, moviegoers love him. And because they show up at the box office, movie studio executives love him too. From humble beginnings in Philadelphia, Smith gained fame in the late 1980s as a family-friendly rapper known as the Fresh Prince. Within a few years, he was tapped to star in a new TV comedy, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. The show earned Smith more adorning fans. During the show's off-season, he took small parts in films. In 1996, his starring role as the action hero in Independence Day cemented him as a Hollywood superstar. Since then, he's earned two Academy Award nominations for Ali and The Pursuit of Happyness and has starred in blockbusters such as Men in Black; I, Robot; Hitch; I Am Legend; Hancock; and Seven Pounds. While he continues to act and rap, he also produces films, raises his three kids, and works for worthy causes.
