In a recent interview Will Smith opens up about filming a new project and also shares details about his new memoir.

Will, the forthcoming memoir will provide the most accurate portrayal of his career, his past, and the struggles he’s dealt with over the years. He hopes the book will share his “true self” since he feels he’s hidden that from his fans for years. It’ll also feature new information about his tumultuous relationship with his father and more on his relationship with Jada. He also writes about the “jealousy” he felt over the friendship Tupac shared with childhood friend Jada. He adds, “I want this book to show people who I really am.”

There are emotional moments like watching his father punch his mother at nine, and others that meant he had to call his close friends and family together to share what was being shared in the book, 25 to be exact.
