Quotes

"As a matter of fact, I believe I could become a president if I only tried. But I'm only 33, I don't have any political ambition yet."

"I was trying so hard. I would memorize the entire script, then I'd be lipping everybody's lines while they were talking. When I watch those episodes, it's disgusting. My performances were horrible." [On his first season of THE FRESH PRINCE OF BEL-AIR (1990)]

"I'm human viagra. I'm Willagra. I'm a sex machine now. I'm raring to go every second of the day. My wife's loving it." (On the change in his body that Ali's intense physical training required)

"My biggest emotional defeat and the greatest emotional pain I've had as an actor was when WILD WILD WEST opened up to $52 million. The movie wasn't good. And it hurt so bad to be the No. 1 movie, to open at $52 million and to know the movie wasn't good."

"Parents just don't understand"

"A human being having a full emotional conversation with a dog is funny, innately. It's one of those things where you get in a scene and you always go for what is the best joke, and a talking dog for some reason, whatever he says, is hilarious. (about his role wiht a talking dog in the forthcoming MEN IN BLACK sequel."

"We're talking about doing a whole album together to support the film. It's still a little premature, but that's the idea." (about his next collaboration with Jennifer Lopez.

"I honestly believe that if I decided to be the president of the United States, I could do it. That might sound foolish to some. But in my mind, if Ronald Reagan can become president, why not Will Smith?"

"My skin is hard when it comes to my music. But with my movies, I'm still a virgin in a lot of ways. I'm not used to being shot down for no reason."

"I had to focus and create a character, not just do my 'Will Smith' thing and get paid." [on his role in Bagger Vance]

"The first eight years of schooling was with all white people. So that helped me to understand how white people think. I think that transition is what helped me bridge the gap, because that's what my success has really been about: bridging the gap between the black community and the white community."

"There's no reason to rush into anything. We are very much in love and life is just so beautiful. We really haven't talked about it. But I'd never have children out of wedlock." [on his relationship to then-girlfriend Jada Pinkett, now his wife]
