From what I’ve heard, Will Smith’s father actually left him. This wasn’t entirely scripted. Will went off on his own rant, and the hug at the end was genuine.
His character was just supposed to shrug off his dad leaving again and he starts to but then Will goes off script. That whole speech is coming entirely from him. The hug at the end is also genuine, actor to actor not character to character.
God, I will never stop loving Will Smith.
If you watch the scene closely, you can see the James’ facial expression as Will goes off the script. He’s very sincere towards Will :3
oh god ;__;
This scene gets me every time!
“Smith was raised by his parents in West Philadelphia. Smith credits his father’s dedication when discussing his involvement in the lives of his own children: “I look at my father and how he was able to keep four kids fed and clothed and still managed to find time to spend with us.””
Fuck you, OP. Don’t fuck with my Fresh Prince you asshole.
(still the best episode)
