Will Smith Net Worth 2014 – 2015: $220 Million
Willard Carroll Smith Jr. is not only one of the funniest guys on earth, as well as one of the most versatile actors I have ever seen, and even though his most recent film “After Earth” was an enormous failure both critically and commercially, he’s still considered the most bankable star in the world according to Forbes. You might be asking yourself, Why is Smith still ranked as the world’s most bankable actor? Well, it’s actually very simple, throughout his entire acting career his films have grossed a grand total of $6,603.7 million ($6.63 billion) in global box office.
I’ve been a Will Smith fan ever since his days as the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, I’ve been watching closely his development as an artist, not intentionally though, but I do have to admit that what he’s done with his life has been quite impressive and also inspirational. Willard is an artist in every sense of the word, he’s not only a great actor who can play both comedy and drama roles to perfection, he’s also an amazing rapper, I still enjoy listening to some of his old tracks when I’m riding around in my car.
I think that his best album was “Big Willie Style” which was released back in 1997, some of my favorite songs include “Gettin’ Jiggy Wit it”, “Miami”, “Just the Two of Us”, and “Men in Black”. I also liked his second solo studio album titled “Willennium”, especially that song featuring Dru Hill and Kool Moe Dee called “Wild Wild West”, which was part of the soundtrack of an action comedy film directed by Barry Sonnenfeld called “Wild Wild West” where Smith starred as the main character.
Will’s talent has no limits, he has earned numerous nominations, awards and accolades throughout his career as an artist such as two oscar nominations as best actor for his work on “Ali” and “The Pursuit of Happyness”, 4 Golden Globe nominations, he has also won six American Music awards, three NAACP Image awards, one Saturn Award, and four Grammys.
I think Will Smith’s career really took off after the first Bad Boys film, I mean we all knew that he would become a star the minute we first saw him peform on “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air”, but he became an international success right after “Bad Boys” was released. From that moment on he started making nothing but hits such as Men in Black, Bad Boys II, Hitch, Independence Day, I Robot, Hancock, I am Legend, and several others. I loved all his films, I didn’t enjoy After Earth though, but I’m really looking forward for the release of Bad Boys III, which will probably be just as good as the previous installments of this movie series.
But, how much is Will Smith really worth? According to several online media outlets and magazines Willard has an estimated net worth of $200 million, other sources believe that he’s worth somewhere around $215 million, however, after making our own calculation and taking into account the most recent information about his earnings and salary, we have come to the conclusion that Smith has a total fortune of $220 million dollars.
