Will Smith Understandably Got Upset When His Family Was Compared to the Kardashians
5/28/2013 3:00 PM PDT
Best thing all day -- there was this interview where Will Smith basically said that the Kardashians and their empire of fame are crap, and his family just doesn't get down like that. Of course, he used way more eloquent terms than "crap," or phrases like "doesn't get down like that," but you get the meat of the story. Bottom line is that the Kardashians aren't even all that unlikable as a whole to just the common folk -- other celebrities (well, except for Kanye West, but everybody knows he's kind of "special") don't even care much for them.
Here's what Will said when he was asked what the Smiths' lives were like in comparison to the lives of the Kardashians -- and burn:
"For our family, the entire structure of our life, our home, our business relationships—the entire purpose is for everyone to be able to create in a way that makes them happy. Fame is almost an inconsequential by-product of what we’re really trying to accomplish. We are trying to put great things into the world, we’re trying to have fun, and we’re trying to become the greatest versions of ourselves in the process of doing things we love. So the idea of fame or exploitation or orchestrating the media is sometimes even less than desirable for us."
Haha, guys. Oh man. How amazing is that quote? The thing is, too, if you read the rest of the interview, you'll have noticed that he was pretty much ticked from the moment the question about the Kardashian comparison even came up (and rightfully so).
Will Smith wins the favorite person award for the day -- the end!
