Janet Hubert, the actress who played the original Aunt Vivian on "The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air" but was replaced after three seasons, says she's tired of feuding and wants to patch things up with Will Smith.

In the wide-ranging interview with above, Hubert explains the details surrounding her departure from the series and concedes that after twenty years of bickering, she wants to make peace with Will Smith and rest of the show's cast.

“I would say to him [Smith], we need to heal this. You’ve done some things, you’ve said some things, that were totally untrue and you know that they were untrue. I’ve said some things that I probably should have never said ... I’m tired. Aren’t you tired Will?” Hubert said of the feud. When asked if she would attend a reunion of the show, she replied, "Absolutely."

Hubert's statements strike a much different tone than many of her previous comments about Smith and the show. When Smith shared a photo on Facebook of much of the "Fresh Prince" cast -- but not Hubert -- back together in 2011, she told TMZ, "There will never be a reunion … as I will never do anything with an a**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.”
