Bad Boy Made Good: Will Smith Explains Why He’s Rich and Doesn’t Want an Oscar in Very Brief Video Clip


Will Smith has made a string of turkeys along with several blockbusters. He has two Oscar nominations. The last one was in 2007 for “The Pursuit of Happyness.” He’s promoting the 3rd “Bad Boys” movie, which will make a lot of money and be forgotten. Why did he make it? In this clip, he explains that fans are always asking when is he going to make another Bad Boys movie? “No one asks for Pursuit of Happyness 2,” he says. And there you are. Will will likely receive a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Academy in 2032.
