Will Smith Tears Up Ending 'Fresh Prince' Feud w/ Janet Hubert

Will Smith and Janet Hubert have finally put their differences aside! The former co-stars sat down together for the first time in 27 years during "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" reunion special on HBO Max to discuss the actress' contentious exit from the sitcom nearly three decades earlier. Hubert originally played Aunt Viv for three seasons of the show. She left in 1993 citing "creative differences" and was replaced by Daphne Maxwell Reid. The casting shakeup sparked an ongoing feud between Smith and Hubert, which has continued in the public eye - until now!

    people are gonna have difficulties with each other. That's life. They may act badly in the moment, but that doesn't make them bad people. SO much respect for these two getting together, being honest and hearing each other out. Not many people can do that. You don't have to like each other, but you can see the respect there.

    Dam this guy needs lot of attention , these celebrities think they are so special , like they are the only ones with problems, they act so superior , does will think because he reads a movie script or some cheesey pop / rap song were supposed to watch this and take him seriously , this is like watching a bad movie where people cant act , move on your career is over stop trying to be in front of the camera , go volunteer and help people in poor communities try Chicago or Philadelphia

    OK PEOPLE LETS TALK- JANET IS A HELL OF A PURE WALKING TALENT. But this is what Will should’ve said to her when she asked “ Why was I a threat to you?” (Which Will kindly went around it). This is why she was a threat for Will. Because Will came from a broken home, bc he was a survivor, ambitious and talent young black American. And he would’ve not allowed this DIVA out of place actor TRY TO SABOTAGE WHAT HE HAS BEEN AFTER FOR SUCH A LONG TIME, PERIOD, NO MATTER WHO THE HELL YOU THINK YOU MIGHT BE, AIN’T GOING TO HAPPEN AROUND HIM, AND SO, IT DIDN’T , AND SO JANET GOT OUT. PLAIN AND SIMPLE. SHE BECAME A THREAT, SHE’S OUT. NO MATTER WHAT. 🌞⚡️ I love Janet, but now Will is the father and she’s the daughter who never learnt to understand THAT CONCEPT.

    It's so so important to own up to your mistakes, to forgive & not hold a grudge, to try to put yourself in the shoes of the other person & stop putting yourself & your feelings first, because EVERYONE is going through something, nobody gets through this life without some scrapes & bruises on their body. And people are proud, most don't like anyone knowing their personal life, so, maybe this person who seems so difficult to work with & be around, is going through some really tough stuff in their life & has some really hard things to face, don't judge so harshly. I personally really loved Janet Hubert as Aunt Viv, through the years, this show, tapped into some really hard subjects & I know that Janet would've made those subjects even more powerful, because she's a strong woman with strong opinions, maybe a little too strong, who knows. But this show & having the brilliant James Avery on it, was a blessing to those who grew up watching it, I think it changed alot of things in alot of people, for the better. I am so glad that Will & Janet were able to come back together & love each other again & forgive each other, that's what we all need to do, because life is like a rainstorm, pouring down on you & if you don't reach for that rainbow, you'll never see the sun.

    I said it ... Will may have been a jerk back then but he was young. Imagine you in your 20's, immature as hell and not knowing a damn thing. Since then he's been married, divorced, re-married, and had kids. Those events turn you into a man and when you look back you almost convulse because you realise just how juvenile you were back then.

    Ok and let us all learn the good from this! Very brave of them to deal with the ongoing public artistic differences in the public eye with maturity and grace. I do applaud Will Smith he seems to have been the only one who was the object of Ms Hubert’s anger and bitterness though all the other cast members have been cited as finding her increasingly difficult to work with. Glad they are both moving on! Two very multi-talented people.

    She is gorgeous. It is a shame the way things happened. 30 years ago she had to work twice as hard and be twice as good to be recognized for all her talents, and some are rightfully of the notion that women of color still do today. For a 22 minute sitcom, the show had a lot of heart. unfortunately, good professional people that were not as emotionally aware of mental abuse and debilitating stressors were conditioned to accept that they were all supposed to deal with internal struggles privately and to talk about them was a weakness, baby boomers and children from the Greatest Generation's old-school mindset. Today we all know communication is key.

      He did not know the full story, she did not reach out to them and the best that had was what Will said or the Studio said, he also did not know the full story as we have it now... or probably did not know, I assume and do you think she could trust him when she had a husband at home who was abusive and James Avery was playing her husband in Fresh Prince of Bel Air...

    Yet, she did play a role in this mess with the added negativity, not clarifications, but negativity, so healing was something off the table by one or all parties. Just look up prior earlier interviews both video and print. She lit some unnecessary fires that don't lay all the blame in just one spot.
