President Will Smith? Don't dismiss the idea just yet.
The actor, 52, hasn't ruled out the possibility of running for political office, he said during an episode of the Pod Save Americapodcast on Monday as he promoted his new Netflix series, Amend: The Fight for America. The six-part docuseries explores the Fourteenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
"I think for now I'll let that office get cleaned up a little bit and then I'll consider that at some point down the line," Smith told host Jon Favreau on Monday's podcast episode.
Smith said he's isn't sure if he'll remain in the arts or dip his toes into politics, but either way he'll continue to speak his mind and advocate for what he believes in.
"I don't know, it's like, I absolutely have an opinion. I'm optimistic. I'm hopeful," he said. "I believe in understanding between people and I believe in the possibility of harmony. So, I will certainly do my part, whether it remains artistic or at some point ventures into the political arena."
