The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air Cast Member Who Will Smith Had Beef With

Janet Hubert portrayed the original Aunt Vivian for three years on “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,” and while her working relationship with Will Smith was amicable during Seasons 1 and 2, the rapport deteriorated thereafter. Following Season 3, Hubert quit the show, and Daphne Reid took her place as Mrs. Banks.

The two stars’ clashing egos seemed to be the principal problem in their he said-she said feud, but neither was willing to relent over the years. “I can say straight up that Janet Hubert wanted the show to be ‘The Aunt Viv of Bel Air’ show because I know she is going to dog me in the press,” Smith said in an interview when the rivalry began, according to E!

Hubert contended that the friction started when, unbeknownst to the cast, Smith became a producer on the show, and his new position enabled him to give his colleagues acting notes. And some were more hurtful than helpful. “‘You were telling me how a Black woman acts, but I happen to be a Black woman,'” Hubert recounted a discussion with Smith during an interview with Eyewitness News ABC7NY.

Hubert claimed she was stonewalled from working elsewhere while shooting Season 3, and she needed additional acting opportunities because her “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” contract drastically reduced both her hours and salary. Other variables plagued the actress, so it wasn’t all ego, and her abusive marriage obviously didn’t help the unbearable tension building with Smith.
