Happy 45th Birthday, Will Smith!

Happy 45th birthday to Will Smith!

Often heralded as one of the most powerful and successful actors in Hollywood, Smith is the man who made us sing about going to "Miami," took away our memories with that little mind zapper in "Men in Black" and won our hearts in "The Pursuit of Happyness."

But before he won four Grammys, two Academy Award nods and four Golden Globe nominations, Smith was a rapper-turned-coolest-cousin-ever who invaded our living rooms through our TV sets. With a backwards baseball hat and a killer collection of neon clothes, Smith might always be "The Fresh Prince of Bel Air" to us.


Forget his other accolades; we'll be singing this little jingle for decades to come.
