Will Smith's New Memoir Will Be Full Of Wordsmiths

While the Smiths typically leave the majority of their stories for the Red Table, Will Smith has reportedly saved a few juicy stories for himself over the years.

On Saturday, the two-time Oscar nominee announced the release of his new memoir, "Will," on Instagram, revealing that his first book will be available on November 9.

“I know this is strange, but this is my book,” the actor said in a video posted over the weekend, using a Pixar-style Instagram filter to show off the memoir’s vibrant cover. “It’s been a labor of love. I’ve been working on it for the past two years, and it’s finally ready.”

While fans may be familiar with some of the actor's backstory, the "brave and inspiring book" will delve deep into his rise from a Philadelphia teen to global superstar, chronicling the highs and lows of his trailblazing and decades-spanning career.

Smith rose to prominence in the late 1980s as a member of the hip-hop duo DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince, winning a pair of Grammy Awards along the way.

Smith rose to prominence after starring in the iconic sitcom "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air," and went on to star in a string of box-office hits such as "Bad Boys," "Men in Black," "Hitch," and "Independence Day."

“In ‘Will,’ one of the most dynamic and globally recognized entertainment forces of our time opens up fully about his life, tracing his learning curve to a place where outer success, inner happiness, and human connection are aligned. Along the way, ‘Will’ tells the story in full of one of the most incredible rides through the worlds of music and film that anyone has ever had,” Penguin Press said in a statement.

The 352-page memoir, written in collaboration with “The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck” author Mark Manson, was first announced in 2018 by Penguin Random House. The cover was designed by New Orleans-based visual artist Brandan “BMike” Odums.

The memoir, which is described as a "product of a profound journey of self-knowledge," also explores how Smith learned to "master his own emotions" and hopes to help readers do the same.

“I believe that it is simple to navigate the material world once you have conquered your own mind. Once you’ve learned the terrain of your own mind, every experience, every emotion, every circumstance, whether positive or negative, simply propels you forward, to greater growth and greater experience,” Smith said in a statement.

As of Sunday, “Will” had already topped Amazon’s list of actor and entertainer biographies, and Smith thanked his fans on Instagram for their support.
