Will Smith Is Considering Politics
If Will Smith decides to take jab at politics, It will be exciting to see how he influences the political realm.
“During an extensive interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Oscar-nominated actor Will Smith hinted at a possible future in politics.
“I’m a climber, so if I see a mountain, I have to climb it,” Smith said during the magazine’s “Awards Chatter” podcast. “I’m not a camper; I don’t like hanging in one place too long. So I think, at this point, I’m elevating my ability to be useful in the world.”
Smith, 47, explained that it was always his grandmother’s dream that he would “make myself useful to people in this lifetime.”
“And, you know, as I look at the political landscape, I think that there might be a future out there for me. They might need me out there,” he added.
In fact, Smith — who currently stars in the upcoming drama “Concussion” about Dr. Bennet Omalu and his discovery of Chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) in professional football players — said the current political culture is one that keeps him up at nights.
“This is the first year that I’ve been incensed to a level that I can’t sleep, you know? So I’m feeling that at some point, in the near future, I will have to lend my voice to the conversation in a somewhat different way,” he said.”
