Remember the original Aunt Viv on the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air back in the day? Well actress Janet Hubert has NOT gotten over how she was fired off the popular 90s television sitcom. Above all, she is still holding her grudge against actor Will Smith and according to TMZ, she still resents Smith after all these years:
There will never be a reunion … as I will never do anything with an a**hole like Will Smith. He is still an egomaniac and has not grown up. This constant reunion thing will never ever happen in my lifetime unless there is an apology, which he doesn’t know the word.
Damn. According to Aunt Viv, Will turned on her and got her fired in the middle of the show’s run for not feeding his ego or behaving in a groupie-like manner. Just last week, a majority of the Fresh Prince cast reunited at a charity event, with the exception of Hubert (of course), Daphne Reid (the 2nd Aunt Viv) and Joseph Marcell (the butler, Geoffrey) missing from the picture.
Check out this video from last year where Janet Hubert recalls about how immature Will was on set and how she wasn’t into the then 22-year-old’s hip-hop lifestyle, saying sarcastically, “If you want me to kiss your @$$, then you had to put it in my contract.”
