Well, Barack did say that if a movie was ever made about him, he’d like Will Smith to fulfill the lead role, but does that mean that Will is fit to venture into politics, even off-camera?
His wife Jada Pinkett Smith has revealed that her actor husband is seriously considering swapping the big screen for politics and has his eye on one day making it all the way to the White House.
“Will is thinking about going into politics,” Jada said. “He once said he could imagine becoming a US president. He wasn’t joking, he was quite serious about it.”
But, don’t think that Jada is completely on-board just yet. On becoming the First Lady, she said, “It’s just not for me.”
However, Jada — who raises two children, 11-year-old Jaden and nine-year-old Willow, with Will — does enjoy engaging in politics. She wants the education system in the US reformed and is prepared to campaign for change.
“Will and I want to leave traces on this planet – and with that I mean more important traces than just films,” she said.
