Hollywood actor Will Smith admitted that one day he had a desire to kill his father. In his memoirs, he told what problem in the family it was connected with, reports Chronicle.info with reference to rusjev.net.

“When I was nine years old, I saw my father hit my mother so hard on the head that she fell. Then she spat blood, “- said the actor about domestic violence in the family.

In addition, childhood trauma influenced the later life and career of the actor. For a long time he doubted that he deserved recognition, praise, sincere attention and laughter from the audience.

“Because he could not resist my father. For being a coward, “the artist emphasized.

Smith's parents separated when he was a teenager and formally divorced in 2000. Although the actor maintained a close relationship with his father, Smith writes that his anger over childhood trauma resurfaced again decades later when he cared for Will Sr. due to progressive cancer.

< p> Remembering his late father, Smith stated that he was cruel, but he was always genuinely interested in his son's success.

“My father was cruel, but he was also at every game, play and concert … alcoholic, but was sober at the premiere of each of my films. He listened to every record. He visited every studio, “the actor writes.
