Jada Pinkett Smith Wasn't Cast to Play Will Smith's Girlfriend on 'Fresh Prince of Bel-Air'

Jada Pinkett Smith may be married to Will Smith now, but she wasn’t cast to play his girlfriend on his long running show Fresh Prince of Bel-Air!

When Jada was a young actress, she auditioned to play Will‘s love interest on the show but didn’t get the role!

“I auditioned for Fresh Prince, and they told me I was too short to play Will‘s girlfriend only for me to become his wife!” Jada told Extra.

She added, “You know, once I got on my feet, and you know I was doing my thing…I had done a couple of movies and I did Different World, then Fresh Prince wanna come back and be like, ‘We need you on the show.’ I was like, ‘No, I’m a movie star, I don’t have time.’”

Ang Lee & Will Smith's Film 'Gemini Man' Gets 2019 Release Date

Ang Lee‘s upcoming Gemini Man has officially been given a 2019 release date!

Paramount Studios announced that the upcoming clone assassin flick will hit theaters on October 4, 2019.

Will Smith is set to star in the film as “an aging assassin who tried to get out of the business but finds himself in the ultimate battle: fighting his own clone who is 25 years younger than him and at the peak of his abilities,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Gemini Man has been pitched around to studios for decades, but visual effect technology couldn’t allow an actor to realistically play two different ages.

Now in 2017, studios can now “de-age” actors just like how they have with Brad Pitt in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Robert Downey Jr in Captain America: Civil War.
