Will Smith has kept several poignant stories secret over the years, and now he’s about to make them public. The two-time Oscar nominee announced the release of his new Will memoirs on Instagram.
The actor wrote that his first book of memoirs is set to hit shelves Nov. 9. “I know it’s weird, but it’s my book,” Smith noted, showing off the brightly colored cover of the memoir.
“It was a labor of love. I’ve been working on it for the last two years, and it’s finally ready,” the actor also noted.
While fans are probably already familiar with parts of the actor’s backstory, the “brave and inspiring book” will show the hidden details of his journey from Philadelphia teenager to global superstar. The memoir recounts the ups and downs of his groundbreaking multi-year career.
