The Main Reason Why Hollywood Loves Will Smith But Not His Son
Will Smith has broken many stereotypes and created a place for himself in the Hollywood hall of fame with his universally popular personality, mind-blowing acting prowess and his singing and dancing skills. His comic timings are still rare amidst African American actors in the mainstream media still. He is a multiple Oscar nominee and is a world-wide phenomenon even in countries like China, Japan and India.
But unfortunately, his son who started as a child artist in many movies somehow fizzled away as he grew manly because of his pseudo-intellectual behaviour which never went down well with many. It’s a pity because he was hailed as equally talented as his dad but this is why Hollywood likes Will Smith but not so much his son.
1Why people love Will Smith
He is not afraid of looking funny.
Will Smith is one of those rare actors who has no ego hassles or star tantrums. He started his career as a comic actor, and never minds looking funny in front of the camera which he does with his trademark Elan. He has a great sense of humour and not afraid to laugh at himself. He had no issues to go on a date with the Robot Sophia and being rejected by her. His trademark smile can melt anyone which makes it so much easier to love him.
2He is sincere and open
Will Smith’s enthusiasm and positive vibes are contagious. He is a natural at being the life of any party or any group interviews and puts everyone in ease with his smile and humours. He has no starry attitude and regards everyone as a friend.
3Will is great with children
Will is adored by adults and kids all across the world due to his friendliness and fun way of dealing with kiddie fans. During the shoot of “The Aladdin” 2, little girls came to him and requested him to do something magical since he was the genie.
He smartly turned the situation in his favour by telling the kids that being a genie he cannot perform magic in real life as it may scare regular people so he can only do it in the movie and smartly sent those kids to Jasmine. Smooth move Will!
4He loves his fans
Will Smith is a world-famous phenomenon but he has not forgotten the fact it’s his fans who have lifted him up to that station of life. He makes sure he shows his gratitude to his fans over the years anyway he can. He was the member of Jury of Cannes Films Festivals 2 years ago and made this event from being serious and cerebral and boring to fun and entertaining as it never has been before. He talked to his fans, took umpteen number of selfies and if that was not all he danced and sang with his admirers making this event a party in itself.
