Will Smith became rich by being an actor. Smith started as a rapper in 1985. He was in the hip-hop group DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince. Smith spent money excessively when he was younger and underpaid his income taxes. He spent too much money on a house, jewelry, and cars. The IRS eventually assessed a $2.8 million tax debt against Smith. They garnished his income and seized a lot of his possessions. Smith was almost bankrupt in 1990 when he signed the contract to be on NBC’s show “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air”.

The sitcom was successful and began his career as an actor.

As of 2012, his movies have grossed more than $6 billion worldwide. His most financially successful movies have been Independence Day, Bad Boys, I Am Legend, I, Robot, Wild Wild West, and Hancock.
