Will Smith began his lucrative career in the rap duo, DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince. They won their first Grammy Award in 1988 and were highly acclaimed for their work in the rap world. With fame came money, which resulted in a spending spree causing Smith to neglect paying the correct amount of income taxes. The IRS garnished his income as well as took many of his possession to offset the 2.8 million dollar tax debt. Fortunately for Smith, NBC offered him a television show entitled The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, which was extremely successful. The program was actually created around Will Smith.

Smith made the decision that he wanted to be the best actor in the world. He began some film work and his salary seems to keep increasing. He starred in movies such as Men in Black I, II and III, Ali, Bad Boys I and II, The Legend of Bagger Vance, Independence Day, Enemy of the State and I Robot. In 2004, Smith earned 35 million dollars and the following year added another 25 million to his bank account. 2006 and 2007 allowed Smith to rake in 36 million dollars and 85 million dollars. In 2008, he earned 45 Million dollars while in 2009, he earned another 36 million dollars. Will Smith also produces films and music which only adds to his wealth. We estimate Smith’s net worth to be around 215 Million dollars!

So, how much is 215 Million Dollars really?

If Will Smith wanted to empty out his bank account, he could easily make a lot of people very happy. Smith could purchase a big screen TV for each and every resident of Oahu between the ages of eighteen and sixty-five. There are 354,607 Oahu residents that fit the criteria. Since flat panel televisions cost around $600, Smith would even have enough money left over to fly to Oahu and deliver the gifts himself!
