Over the last 20 years, rapper turned actor Will Smith has shown us he has what it takes to make it in Tinsel Town. Though he now considered to be an A-lister and arguably one of the most bankable box-office actors in the business, the man once known as the Fresh Prince says he can no longer watch the show of the same name where his acting career began.

Smith talked about this while appearing on The Graham Norton Show:

“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.”

Fresh Prince is nostalgic for many people my age, the classic fish out of water story was a hit for NBC and catapulted Smith to the top of Hollywood.

While it is noticeable at times that Smith was still honing his acting skills during the show, they did improve over the course of the show and prepared him for his career as a star.
