Will Smith: the world will be changed forever by President Barack Obama
Will Smith has said he thinks the world with change “forever” after Barack Obama becomes the 44th president of the USA tomorrow - and the nation’s first African-American leader.
The Seven Pounds star explained last week: “It’s not just revolutionary, it’s evolutionary.
“Never before in the history of the planet has someone, a group of people, moved from the slave class of empire to be elected to the top spot.
“It’s just such a huge moment for America and for the world, it’s something I believed was real and possible for so long.
“I carried myself around the world in that way as if it could be true, possible, so there’s a deep truth in me that was validated on [Election Day] November 4th.
“We watched it together as a family. With my kids it was no big deal, whereas for myself and for [wife] Jada, and even more so for our parents, who lived through the struggle for equality, it was so huge, but for our kids the world is different.
“[The world] has changed forever. The ideas and the fibres that are created for America have never been more true than today.”
