will smith in the pursuit of happiness
Will Smith has turned in incredible and iconic roles over the years, but what Smith’s arguably the best performance of them all was the one he gave The Pursuit of Happyness. In the 2006 film, Smith played Chris Gardner, a man who struggled with homelessness with his young son before becoming a finance entrepreneur and motivational speaker. Smith threw it back at the motivational movie this week with a shoutout to Gardner and revealed a cool quote I don’t understand.
the actor took Instagram To wish Chris Gardner a happy birthday and share a cool behind-the-scenes fact The Pursuit of Happyness, It inspires me to revisit this emotional and uplifting film about a real man’s journey. To keep an eye:
In a birthday message to Smith, the actor shared that Chris Gardner continues to inspire him and help people around the world “find their high against all odds” with his story. He posted a picture along with showing the love of the entrepreneur on his 69th birthday The Pursuit of Happyness This suggests that the real person himself appeared briefly in a scene.
If you don’t know to look for it, the businessman may just appear to be an extra in a fancy suit who passes by the leading man. Kudos to the makers for crafting that brief cameo for him. It’s poetic that the fictional (and younger version) of the entrepreneur would cross paths with his real-life counterpart. (Yes, and now, I’m about to cry again.) In response to the social media message, Gardner responded in the comments with these words:
Big wish! my man, if i knew 69 was going [look] That’s right I would have done it a long time ago! People keep asking me ‘When are you going to do Chasing Happiness Part 2?’ I always tell them I’m doing that thing right now! Ha! The closing bell is ringing for trading on NASDAQ today! Just did my first IPO! Back up this truck! Mad love to you and the family! ✌🏾💪🏾🙏🏾CG
It’s great to see that Will Smith and Chris Gardner are still in touch after 15 years The Pursuit of Happyness Hit Theatre. Smith was nominated for her second Oscar for playing Gardner, and this scene alone tells you why:
