Will Smith has revealed in a new interview the reason why he has finally decided to write a memoir.
The 53-year-old actor was in London on Thursday, celebrating the launch of his new book at the event WILL: An Evening of Stories with Friends, hosted by Idris Elba.
During their chat onstage, Elba asked Smith why he had finally decided it was the right time to write a memoir.
“This was the first time when I [felt I had] experienced enough, suffered enough and solved enough problems in my life…in order for it to be helpful,” Smith said.
“It was the first time I felt like I could say things with an earned emotional authority that I thought could be helpful,” he added.
Smith’s new book Will, is out now and available in all major bookstores.
