In a one-on-one video interview with actor Benecio del Toro that the two celebs did for Variety, Smith reveals that the person who truly inspired him to become an actor was his high-school flame. “When I was 15, my girlfriend cheated on me,“ Smith says. “And from that moment, in this bizarre psychological twist, I wanted to be the most famous entertainer on Earth because I believed that your girlfriend couldn’t cheat on you, you know?“ Mission accomplished, Will!
