Will Smith is always a busy guy. On top of making movies and thrilling his social media viewers with funny anecdotes, the actor and musician is getting ready to pull the curtain back on his life. Smith is releasing an autobiography, aptly titled WILL, in November 2021. Will (and his family) often open up about their lives on Jada Pinkett Smith’s Red Table Talk series. But this memoir will really tell the story of the Fresh Prince from Philly in his own words. And, like any good author does, Will Smith is making his promotional rounds. GQ is known for their funny “celebs go undercover on the internet” clips and, as expected, his is quite entertaining.
Smith went undercover on Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, and more to answer fan inquiries or respond to random posts about him. He, like us, is wondering why there isn’t a Will Smith and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson buddy movie. Smith jokes that the actor and former wrestler is “avoiding him” on purpose. He also fake cries after reading a tweet questioning how he is really doing.
If you’re wondering why Will Smith wasn’t in The Suicide Squad, the answer is simple. He was working on something else at the time of filming. Smith hilariously asks who Idris Elba played and seems thrilled that no one took his role.
Will Smith reveals a fun The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air tidbit. On Instagram, a user asks if the decision to flip Will’s uniform jacket inside out was his idea. He confirms that it was, saying it stemmed from a quick moment of creativity.
Smith steps outside of his own box for a moment, answering questions about his kids as well. He hilariously tries to sing Willow’s “Transparent Soul” to promote it to new listeners and says he admires how Jaden doesn’t care what people think.
And, if you’re wondering what Will thinks is his best and worst movies, there’s an answer to that. He says Men In Black and Pursuit of Happyness are his best and Wild Wild West is a thorn in his side. There’s much more in the 11 minute clip, so dig in and maybe discover something new about Will Smith.
