Janet Hubert is sharing the real gist everyone!
When Jada Pinkett Smith’s now famous video about boycotting the Oscars went viral some weeks ago, there were a lot of reactions from Hollywood.
One of those reactions, if you remember, was from Will Smith’s former co star Janet Hubert who played Aunt Viv on the hit sitcom Fresh Prince Of Bel Air.
It was safe to say at the time Janet Hubert’s own response (in the form of a video) came as a surprise to many and, was made to “shush” the Smiths whom Hubert believed were only mad becayse they did not get nominated.
However, The Real got Jane Hubert on their show and got her to talk about her seemingly long time “beef” with Will Smith.
Referring to herself in third person, Hubert said of her work ethic on the hit show;
Janet Hubert was so professional, it wasn’t even funny.
Of Will Smith she said,
I think he was young and he was inexperienced and I think he simply had to win. And sometimes when you get caught up in a lie… and I went back to them in 2009 and I said ‘Please I need you to clear my name’.
Watch the rest of the teaser clip from the show which airs today in the US.
