Will Smith’s Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air co-star blasts him in new bookJune 20th, 2009 - 11:16 am ICT by ANI
Washington, June 20 (ANI): Will Smith’s ‘Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air’ co-star Janet Hubert has opened up about her feud with the actor in her new book.
Hubert played Smith’s onscreen aunt, Vivian Banks, in the hit 1990s sitcom, but was fired in 1993 and replaced with another actress following reports that she wants to spend more time with her new baby.
In her book ‘Perfection Is Not A Sitcom Mom’, Hubert has admitted that rumours she quit the show are simply not true, reports Contactmusic.
Hubert claims Smith and his management would often sabotage other talented actors on the comedy series - in a bid to keep the spotlight firmly on him.
According to BVbuzz.com, she writes in her book, “Smith had people around him who made sure no one outshone him.”
“I was happy to see Don Cheadle become the quality actor that he is, and often wondered how he made it past one episode, as Hilary’s boyfriend, being such a fierce actor. No one could be on ‘The Tonight Show,’ that first season, except Will. And I mean no one,” she added. (ANI)
