Will Smith has been on our TV screens and in cinemas for some 30 years. His career has been filled with success, and he is still one of the biggest actors in Hollywood. That's why it was such a historic moment when Smith finally won his first Oscar at the 2022 Academy Awards for his role in 'King Richard,' playing the father of Venus and Serena Williams. But the night is remembered for much more controversial reasons, as earlier he had marched onstage and slapped host Chris Rock for making a joke about Jada Pinkett Smith's alopecia (which Rock later claimed he was unaware of). Smith went on to apologize, but damage control mode is still on.
All this said, it's obvious there's a lot more to Smith than meets the eye, so take a look at the following gallery to find out facts you never knew about the star.
