AAlthough in recent years Will Smith has not ceased to be active in major Hollywood productions, the altercation in which he was involved at the last Oscars when he slapped comedian Chris Rock for making fun of his wife, put him back in the spotlight of the media covering the event.
The friendly personality of the actor from Philadelphia has allowed him to become one of the most profitable movie stars and therefore a magnet for dollars, since his appearance in productions offers a certain stamp of guarantee to the producers who use his services.
Open to music production
Smith also devoted himself to music production and achieved several platinum albums which also boosted the careers of his children, Willow and Jaden Smith.
Thanks to his hard work over more than three decades in show business and his real estate investments, Will Smith has an estimated net worth of $350 million.
Will and his wife Jada own about ten properties in the United States which they have been able to increase in value.
In 1999, the two spent $7.5 million to acquire an impressive 100-acre property in the hills between Malibu and Calabasas, California. Subsequently, they acquired more land and after building a mansion, they were able to add value to this project, which is currently valued at nearly $50 million.
Real talk, I’m not the person you’re upset/happy with. I do podcasts and video games for a living.
Pay attention to your taxes
However, Smith is also characterized by his generosity and his recurring contribution to certain worthy causes, as was the case with the donation of $900,000 made a few years ago to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, the Lupus Foundation and the the Baltimore School of the Arts. .
Life taught the Hollywood actor to be disciplined with his finances after the unpleasant experience he had towards the end of 1990 when, after earning $10 million and spending the vast majority of that amount, he was notified that he had not paid $2.8 million in taxes and had to catch up. This may be the reason why he now adopts greater discipline in his finances.
