Former ‘Fresh Prince’ Actress Unleashes Tirade Against Will Smith

Dec 28, 2011  •  Post A Comment

An actress who worked with Will Smith back in his “Fresh Prince of Bel Air” days apparently still holds a grudge against the actor, TMZ.com reports.

Janet Hubert, who played the original Aunt Viv on the show, blames Smith, who went on to a superstar career in movies, for getting her fired from the show. “Fresh Prince” went off the air 15 years ago.

Responding to talk of a possible “Fresh Prince” reunion, Hubert told TMZ, “There will never be a reunion … as I will never do anything with an a**hole like Will Smith.”

The actress added: "He is still an egomaniac and has not grown up. This constant reunion thing will never ever happen in my lifetime unless there is an apology, which he doesn’t know the word."

Hubert has also complained about Smith in the past, the story notes, saying he turned against her because she wouldn’t suck up to him. But Smith has offered his own version of events, indicating it was Hubert’s bad attitude that got her canned from the show.

  1. I’m not sure whom to believe on this one. Based on what I’ve seen on the show, since ya know it’s kind of hard to meet Will Smith and Aunt Viv in person, I’d have to go with what Smith is saying. She seems like a woman that would have an attitude problem, but really who cares? It’s been so long since the show and something so little like that really shouldn’t matter anymore. It would be cool to see a reunion though; I wasn’t very fond of who replaced her on the show. 🙂
