Will Smith said he anticipated his latest life shift and that his career would be “destroyed” earlier than the smacking of Chris Rock at the 2022 Oscars.
“Once you drink it, you’re going to see yourself in a way you’ve never seen yourself,” Smith explained to Letterman, adding, “One of the experiences was the individual most hellish psychological experience of my life.”
Will Smith said he had the vision that his palatial home and career would be ripped from him for two years which he explained by ingesting the psychedelic drug nearly 15 times.
“I drank, and it usually takes about 45 minutes to kick in. And I’m sitting there, and you always feel like, ‘Maybe it won’t kick in this time.’ So I’m drinking and sitting there and then all of a sudden it’s like I start seeing all of my money flying away, and my house is flying away and my career is going away,” the “King Richard” star recalled of the out-of-body moment.
“This is my fear in real life, and I’m in there, and I’m wanting to vomit and all of that, and I hear a voice saying: ‘This is what the f— it is. This is what the f— life is,'” the 53-year-old Smith lamented to Letterman.
Ultimately, Will Smith said he came to when he heard his daughter, Willow Smith, calling out for his help, and he realized that at the end of the day, nothing can ever take away his true blessings — his family.
“Then slowly I stopped caring about my money. I just wanted to get to Willow. I stopped caring about my house. I stopped caring about my career,” he added.
“When I came out of it, I realized that anything that happens in my life, I can handle it,” the actor explained. “I can handle any person I lose. I can handle anything that goes wrong in my life. I can handle anything in my marriage. I can handle anything that this life has to offer me.”
