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.

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.

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.  

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.  

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.
