Last night Will Smith was honored at the MTV Movie Awards for his twenty-plus year career in television and movies.
His tribute included The Lonely Island performing The Fresh Prince of Bel Air theme song and acknowledgement from Queen Latifah and Halle Berry.
In his speech, Smith jokes about the award being the “old man’s award” and recalls meeting a young fan who only knew who he was because of his son Jaden’s role in Karate Kid. He then reflects on the purpose of his career.
“I’m humbled and I just want all of you to know that I’m dedicated to being a light in this world. There’s a lot of suffering. A lot of people are suffering in this world and when you see my material and when I present myself in public and what I’m trying to build with my family and friends, I just want all of you to know I’m dedicated ’til I die to light and to love.”
