Will Smith's Birthday
It is Will Smith’s birthday today! Professionally, he is an American actor, producer, and rapper. He has enjoyed success in television, film and music. In April 2007, Newsweek called him the most powerful and successful actor in Hollywood. Smith has been nominated for four Golden Globe Awards, two Academy Awards, and has won four Grammy Awards.
In 1990, his popularity increased dramatically when he starred in the popular television show The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. After the success of the show, Smith immediately moved from television to film, and ultimately starred in numerous blockbuster films. He is the only actor to have eight consecutive films gross over $100 million in the domestic box office, and ten consecutive films gross over $150 million internationally and the only one to have eight consecutive films in which he starred open at #1 spot in the domestic box office tally. He also received Best Actor Oscar nominations for Ali and The Pursuit of Happyness.
A number of sequels were next, with Smith reprising his roles in Men In Black and Bad Boys. Staying with the sci-fi action theme, Smith moved on to I Robot in 2004. The Isaac Asimov adaptation saw Smith playing a cop in 2035 investigating a murder by a robot and then battling a robot insurgency. The film performed extremely well, grossing more than $144 million in U.S. box offices.
Hitch was a massive success, and was followed by another critical and financial hit, the 2006 rags-to-riches tale, The Pursuit of Happyness. Starring alongside his real-life son Jaden, Smith captivated audiences with the story of a single father who has to build a life from scratch. He received his second Academy Award nomination for Best Actor for his performance.
We wish this legendary artist a very Happy Birthday!
