Can you see Will Smith as President of the United States, and no I don’t mean for you to envision him as one in an upcoming movie. I mean…literally, can you see him as President?
Well apparently he has been doing a lot of thinking lately about him giving up acting and making that Arnold Schwarzenegger move into politics full time. Honestly, that may not be a bad idea even though I kind of find it hard right now to envision him as anything more than an actor, but he’s pretty much accomplished all that you can as an actor besides winning the Oscar. He’s the number 1 box office draw in world. He’s the head of his production studio, Overbrook Entertainment, and they are continuing to knock out hit after hit. He has created his son, Jaden, in his own image and he pretty much seems to be the heir to Smith’s Clan acting throne real soon and I think the boy’s just 12. What else is there for Will to accomplish?
Will’s wife Jada Pinkett Smith told press, “Will is thinking about going into politics. He once said he could imagine becoming a US president. He wasn’t joking; he was quite serious about it.”
It’s all part of leaving a legacy for posterity, says Jada. “Will and I want to leave traces on this planet – and with that I mean more important traces than just films.”
And if Will can make the same type of impact in Politics that he has made in the movie industry, I’m all for it.
