Will Smith admits that he has a hard time watching himself on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.

“It was my very first role, and I was very, very focused on being successful, so I learned the whole script and everyone else’s lines. If you watch the first four or five episodes, you can see I’m mouthing other people’s lines. It’s terrible and I can’t bear to watch it”, he tells Graham Norton. 

Smith goes on to say that he doesn’t see himself ever participating in a Fresh Prince reboot.  “Man, I’d have to be Uncle Phil in that one now — I’m nearly 50!” the 49-year-old star jokes.


The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air ran for six seasons, from 1990 through 1996.

Check out the trailer for Smith’s new movie “Bright” on Netflix Friday, December 22nd.
