Now this is a story all about how Will Smith became one of the highest-grossing actors in town. Well, it’s a short story. Smith gained beloved actor status as the star of "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" in the '90s, and then went on to make blockbuster movies almost right after the show ended.
His first hit, 1996’s "Independence Day," is his second highest-grossing movie. That film raked $817.4 million worldwide. He played Deadshot in the lackluster-but-popular "Suicide Squad," which earned over $746 million worldwide, along with a string of $100 million movies throughout his 20-plus-year career.
Disney’s 2019 "Aladdin" remake, where Smith plays Genie, has already grossed over $1billion worldwide is his top-grossing movie of all time.
