Will Smith Is An “Asshole” And “Egomaniac”, Says The Original Aunt Viv
It’s years later, and Janet Hubert, the actress who originated the role of Vivian Banks (‘Aunt Viv’) on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, is still holding a MAJOR grudge against Will Smith. Recently, the cast of the hit 90s sitcom reunited at a charity event, with Will posting a photo of their get together on Facebook with the caption, “Got the Holiday season started right with a ‘Fresh Prince of Bel Air’ reunion…there’s nothin’ like spending Holidays with fam!” Noticeably absent from the photo was Hubert and Daphne Maxwell Reid, who replaced Hubert when she was fired from the show over 16 years ago.
Although it doesn’t seem to be an issue between Will and Reid, the issues between the now Hollywood A-lister and Hubert are anything but water under the bridge. She told TMZ over the weekend:
“There will never be a reunion … as I will never do anything with an as*hole like Will Smith. He is still an egomaniac and has not grown up. This constant reunion thing will never ever happen in my lifetime unless there is an apology, which he doesn’t know the word.”
Wow, I guess time really doesn’t heal all wounds, SMH.
