For his fiftieth birthday, Will Smith jumped from a helicopter over the Grand Canyon. Smith also wanted to draw attention to the charity.


The jump can be seen on the own YouTube channel Will Smith .

Smith wanted to ask for attention and donations for Global Citizen , an organization that fights worldwide hunger. In the livestream on his channel, he admitted to be terrified. “I have had an interesting bond with fear all my life”, he said, after which he told me that as a child he and his family visited the almost 2000-meter-deep natural gorge and was frightened from the shore.



“I can remember that its beauty did me a lot, but I was scared to get to the edge, all my family members were there but I was too scared and I could not see it so well. made to defy everything I’m afraid of. ”

The actor was watched by his family during his action. Wife Jada, sons Trey and Jaden and daughter Willow had come along to celebrate the special birthday of their husband and dad. Also Will’s former colleague and friend Alfonso Ribeiro, who played his cousin Carlton in The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air, came to take a look.
