Will Smith will als Vater nicht länger Diktator sein

Mit seinem Sohn Jaden spielt Will Smith gemeinsam in dem Science-Fiction-Film „After Earth“. Im Interview mit der Berliner Morgenpost spricht er über seine Kindheit und seine Lehren daraus.

„Sorry, ich musste auf die Toilette. Ich bin auch nur ein Mensch.“ Es wirkt bezeichnend, wenn Will Smith seine Verspätung zu Beginn des Interviews auf diese Art und Weise erklärt. Denn der 44-Jährige hat in der Tat etwas Übermenschliches an sich. Die gute Laune ist unerschütterlich, Körpergröße und -haltung sind, man darf das ruhig einmal sagen, imposant. Keinem Star gelang eine solche Erfolgsgeschichte, und inzwischen ist er dabei, diese auch noch zum Familienepos auszubauen. Seinem Sohn Jaden ließ er zuletzt die Rolle in „Karate Kid“ auf den Leib schneidern, jetzt tritt er mit ihm gemeinsam in dem Science-Fiction-Film „After Earth“ (ab 6. Juni in deutschen Kinos) an – wiederum als Vater und Sohn. Doch das obsessive Karrieredenken scheint bei Smith jetzt der Vergangenheit anzugehören. Und auch ein Superstar weiß, dass in seinem Leben nichts absolut ist.
