Will Smith Gives 'Fresh Prince' Shout-Out at Cannes Film Festival (Video)

Will Smith is having too much fun at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival!

The 48-year-old actor suited up for the Annabel’s & Chopard Party held at Martinez Hotel on Wednesday (May 24) in Cannes, France.

He was joined by Marion Cotillard and Colin Farrell.

Also in attendance was Christoph Waltz.

Will was one of the people chosen to serve on the jury of this year’s festival, and when asked how he felt about the experience, Will couldn’t help but give a shout-out to his Fresh Prince of Bel-Air roots.

“I grew up in West Philadelphia – yes, born and raised, yes, thank you,” Will said in a press conference (via Reuters). “West Philadelphia is a long way from the Cannes Film Festival, and the Cannes Film Festival is the ultimate prestige in cinema. So I’m excited to be here, and, more than anything, learn.”
