What is Will Smith’s net worth?

 Will Smith’s net worth is estimated at $350 million, making him one of the richest actors in the world.

At 51 years old, Will Smith is an American actor, rapper, and songwriter. Millions love him, and he’s unarguably been one of the most lovable actors throughout his career.

Early Life

Will Smith was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on the 25th September 1968. Smith’s mother was a school board administrator, and his father a refrigerator engineer.

He has three siblings; his older sister Pamela, and younger twins Harry and Ellen.

Smith went to Overbrook High School and did get offered a scholarship at MIT, which he turned down because he had no intentions of going to college. His dream was to become a rapper, and that’s what he set out to do.

Career

Smith’s career started out by forming the rap group ‘DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince’ with his friend Jeffrey Townes in the 80’s. They had several famous hits, including ‘Summertime’ and ‘Parents Just Don’t Understand’.

The problem came when Will started spending a lot of money, and ended racking up a tax debt of $2.8 million. The IRS took various possessions of Smith’s, and it was at that time he was approached about the making of the sitcom ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel Air’.

Needing money, and open to trying new things, Smith accepted the opportunity, and the show was a huge success. For a short while, 25% of his pay-cheque from the show was going straight to the IRS.

After appearing in the show, he starred in several films in the ’90s, including Six Degrees of Separation, Bad Boys, Men in Black, and Enemy of the State.

Since then, Will Smith has broken acting records, appeared in some of the most successful films worldwide, and has become one of the highest-paid actors in the world.

Smith has worked with some of the best actors in the industry, including Margot Robbie, Martin Lawrence, Jason Bateman, and his own son Jaden Smith. 

As of 2022, Will Smith’s net worth is estimated at $350 million.

How Does Will Smith Spend His Money? 

The Smiths spend a good amount of their money on luxury cars. Will owns a Bentley Azure, a Mayback 57s, a 1965 Ford Mustang, a Cadillac Escalade, and a Mercedes Benz GL450.

Will Smith and his wife have taken many vacation trips in the past and they do not come cheap. Over the years the Smiths have owned real estate worth $100 million across the world.

Their home in Calabasas costs $42 million. The Smiths spend some of their millions spoiling their three kids; Jaden, Willow, and Trey. In 2016, they bought Jaden his own 6000 square foot home worth $4 million.

Will Smith and Jada have their own foundation, “The Will and Jada Smith Family Foundation”, which has given over $1 million to charities and other organizations.

Their biggest beneficiaries have been Christian churches, the Scientology organization, and Mosques. They also donated funds to build a Scientologist school in 2010.
