What Is Will Smith’s Net Worth In 2022?

What Is Will Smith’s Net Worth In 2022?

Best known for appearing in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Will Smith is one of the biggest actors to come out of the US in the past century

Best known for appearing in the hit American sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Will Smith is one of the biggest actors to come out of the US over the past century.

His career has taken him from the film and TV industry to musical pursuits, and as a result of Smith’s undeniable charisma and flair for comedy, it has all been a resounding success.

Smith has done everything under the sun when it comes to the film industry, from voice-acting in Shark’s Tale (2004), to death-defying action with a dash of dark humour in DC’s Suicide Squad (2016) and magical mayhem in Disney’s live-action Aladdin (2019).

It’s hard not to stumble across Will Smith on movie night.

Although Smith’s dazzling film career has earned him extreme fame, the star most recently hit the headlines after slapping American comedian Chris Rock at the Oscars in March 2022 after an on-the-nose joke was made about his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith’s alopecia.

As a result of the slap, the star has been banned from attending the Oscars for 10 years, and a fierce social media debate was sparked over whether the slap was authentic or staged to begin with.

Despite the scandal, Will Smith remains one of the most famous actors of the 21st century, and his reputation has gone relatively untarnished, leading fans to wonder just how much the star is currently worth even after the debacle.

What Is Will Smith’s Net Worth In 2022?

As of 2022, Will Smith has an estimated net worth of a whopping $350 million (£294 million), according to CelebrityNetWorth.

Although much of Will Smith’s income inevitably comes from the long list of box office hits he has starred in, the actor likely also receives royalties from his short music career.

Smith’s venture into the music industry in the 1990s saw him release classic tunes such as ‘Miami’ (1997) and ‘Gettin Jiggy Wit It’ (1997) which are still bound to get the party started even in 2022.

Fame and wealth also seem to run in the family, as Smith is married to American actress Jada Pinkett Smith, who has starred in the animated Dreamworks hit Madagascar, as well as the cult classic franchise, The Matrix

The couple’s children are also making their mark on the music industry, following in their dad’s footsteps, as both Jaden and Willow Smith have successful singing and rap careers.

Willow’s hit songs ‘Meet Me At Our Spot’ and ‘Wait A Minute!’ have become essential anthems for the TikTok generation since rising to popularity through the platform.

Will Smith’s net worth is only expected to grow too, as his next on-screen appearance has been pushed back to 2023. Originally planned to be released in 2022, Will Smith will be playing the lead character, a runaway slave, in Emancipation, directed by Antoine Fuqua.

But for now, Will Smith currently lives in his “mega-mansion” in Calabasas with wife Jada Pinkett Smith, which is reportedly worth an unthinkable $42 million (£35 million).

The residence boasts state-of-the-art facilities, including its own basketball court, tennis court, outdoor pool and exclusive lake, as well as a host of famous neighbours including the Kardashians.
