Will Smith has been in the film business for almost three decades and has made many action movies. He has now announced the terrifying thing he has ever done in the past silver jubilee of his life. During his appearance at The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to promote Gemini Man, Will Smith spoke about the thing that almost scared him.
The actor was seen in a dual role in the film, one of his normal self, and the other was a completely CGI 23-year-old younger version of him. Smith was asked what advice he’d send to his younger self.
Will Smith on the scariest thing he has done in the past 25 years
He said that he feels like that younger version of him, that there is a certain naivety of youth that is strong. He’s aggressive because he doesn’t know something. He said he would ask his young self for advice. The actor said he’s been attempting to recreate that youthful fearlessness for the last two years.
Indicating his fearlessness, he revealed the terrifying thing he has ever done. Smith remembered his 50th birthday when he got bungee jumping out of the Grand Canyon helicopter. The actor admitted that the idea came from Will Smith’s Instagram of ‘Yeah Hypothesis’ when he was asked. He said it was potentially the terrifying thing he’s done in 25 years.
Will Smith decided he was going to do the stunt and live it. Even though his first bungee jumping, he never rehearsed it as he decided to do it live. The actor said that when the stunt team told him that he had to stand outside the helicopter, he was supposed to leave, but he didn’t. He achieved the challenge safely.
