Will Smith Details How He Became the 'Fresh Prince of Bel-Air'

Will Smith Fresh Prince

"Earlier than I used to be in bother with Uncle Phil, I used to be in bother with Uncle Sam", Smith defined.

She convinced him to go to the Arsenio Hall Show where he met the "real-life Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" Benny Medina who pitched the comedy series to him and told him how he was the ideal character to play his role.

Will Smith was broke and owed millions in taxes when he auditioned for The Fresh Prince of Bel Air.

This time around, Smith tells the story of how he redeemed his career by taking a chance on himself as an actor. He did. It was there that he met music manager Benny Medina, who told him about a television pilot that he working on with Quincy Jones.

Hollywood star Will Smith has revealed he did "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" because he was broke and in trouble with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). "I met Benny and he pitches me the thought for this present, and I'm like, 'I'm not an actor'".

It seems so long ago that he was the King Of Hollywood, giving even Tom Cruise and Harrison Ford a run for their money with a string of hits that included Bad Boys, Independence Day and Men In Black. "Inform me what your rap identify was once more?'"

Take a minute and just sit right there - Will Smith will tell you how he became Prince of a town called Bel-Air and it has something a lot to do with the advantages of listening to your girlfriends. "I mentioned sure and I let it rip and I bought to the top and everybody's clapping", Smith mentioned of his impromptu audition.

"He had been consuming, it was apparent", Smith mentioned, smiling. "The IRS took all that stuff, so I was like, broke, broke, broke". Benny Medina is the real-life Fresh Prince of Bel Air'. Like how did he make Thriller like this?' And I suppose we have a drunk Quincy Jones (and Smith's ex-girlfriend) to thank for one of the best TV shows of the '90s.
