If we keep the 2022 Oscar slap gate controversy aside for a little while, Will Smith would be nothing but a treasure trove of talent. Over his huge career span, the actor has provided some jaw-dropping, eye-widening dramas to the industry. From his rap mogul career as Fresh Prince to many award-worthy movies such as King Richard, The Pursuit of Happyness, and Men in Black movies. His most recent historical drama, Emancipation is also a highly appreciable, Academy Awards-worthy project.

Specifically talking about his rare breed sci-fi flick, the original Men In Black movie, the American actor has received nothing but praise. His performance was genuinely charismatic alongside Tommy Lee Jones. In addition to being unique and necessarily a creature of the second half of the 1990s, quite possibly the best popcorn movie of that half-decade. And most of the credit goes to its witty actors. Notably, even Chris Hemsworth had nothing but words of appreciation for his performance.
