Will Smith Loves Being Famous

By Annie Reuter

For some actors, fame is a burden. This is far from the case for Will Smith.

“I want people to recognize me,” the Suicide Squad actor tells Jimmy Kimmel. “I’ve met a lot of people where fame can be a burden. I just love it. I really do.”

Smith then described how his celebrity recently helped him out of a bind when he was driving 30 minutes from home and discovered he was out of gas and had no wallet.

“I looked over on the other side and I saw a dude. He was, like, 36, and I was like, ‘That dude is a Fresh Prince fan.’ You can spot ‘em!” Smith said. “So I kinda rolled the window down and after a couple of minutes, he was like, ‘Will?’”

Smith then used his fan’s recognition to his advantage.

“He said, ‘Hey, man, can I get a picture?’ I said, ‘Yeah man, I need about $10,’” Smith said, to which the fan obliged. When Smith tried to get the man’s information to repay him, he refused.
