American actor and director Will Smith took part in the Pod Save America podcast and said that he was thinking about a political career. A recording of the conversation with him was posted on the Crooked Media website.
The actor admitted that in the near future, he would apply for any political post. “I am optimistic and believe that there can be understanding and harmony between people. I will definitely contribute to this, regardless of whether I continue to engage in acting or at some point enter the political arena, ” Smith promised. However, he did not specify exactly when he plans to change activities.
This is not the first time that the Men in Black star has declared his political ambitions. Five years ago, in an interview at CBS, the artist said that he might run for the United States’ presidency. “If people keep saying all these crazy things they’ve been saying in the news about walls and Muslims lately, they will force me to go into politics,” Smith noted.
Last year, the actor supported anti-racist protests in the United States. He also admired the modern generation who came together to solve this problem. In his opinion, the more calmly they behave during the protests, the better the shortcomings of those who oppress them become visible.
